ESWT Treatment

Posted by Barry on 11/09/03 at 15:09 (136876)

I had ESWT performed on my right heel in May of this year. On a scale of between 1 and 10 my pain level was a 20! I had immediate and lasting relief of about 90% of the pain. My question is about the remaining annoying discomfort that I thought would have gone away by now. What can I do to gain complete relief of the discomfort? Thanks

What machine did you have treatment on?

It was the dornier epos. I did the procedure. What I have found out and so have the FDA one year follow up is that it can take up to one year for complete resolution of that last discomfort.
