Tarsal coalition and ESWT

Posted by Tom M on 11/14/03 at 13:49 (137506)

I sprained my ankle playing basketball 5 years ago (turned it inwards really badly) Six months later it still felt sprained. My foot has lost some arch, and I've seen 3 doctors all of whom have confirmed through CT scans that the problem is a Tarsal coalition. Can ESWT restore full motion? If so how, and why is it better than surgery?

Sorry not used for this condition . It is used for any insertional tendon and or fascia condition that is painful, chronic in nature
