QUESTION FOR DR.Posted by KELLY C on 11/18/03 at 16:13 (137873)
WHAT HAPPENS TO THE SPURS ONCE THEY ARE ZAPPED?
DURING A SIMILIAR PROCEDURE FOR A KIDNEY STONE, THE BODY WILL PASS IT THROUGH THE URINE. BUT, IN THIS CASE, WHAT / HOW DOES THE BODY RID ITSELF OF FRAGMENTS?
WILL THE BODY SUBSTAIN ADDITIONAL PROBLEMS ASSOCIATED WITH IT AT A LATER TIME?

ESWT for chronic insertional plantar fasciitis has no effect on the spur. There is no breaking up of any bone. ESWT by micro-trauma to just the fascia stimulates the body to produce fibroblasts which increases the strength of the tissue.
