ESWT Question for Dr.Z

Posted by HilaryG on 11/12/03 at 08:19 (137200)

Dr Z, How long should a person refrain from running after ESWT? My partner is a runner and is having ESWT next week for insertional PF by someone in your group. (We live in upstate NY so the closest doctor is in Rockland County, unfortunately you are too far). I am afraid she will run too soon and undo the benefits of the ESWT. I would appreciate your opinion so I can try to discourage her from running too soon or doing any other form of inappropriate activity. Thanks for your help. Hilary

I would recommend no running for six weeks. Biking, swimming are the best routine to follow the next six weeks after ESWT. Good luck to your friend . ESWT is a great procedure for a chronic pf insertional foot problem
