I Had ESWT recently with Dornier Epos Ultra. I experience pain when walkint to the bathroom in the middle of the night even though I wear shoes and orhtotics. Would wearing a nightsplint help this and aid the healing process? Thanks for your help. Chris Z

It can take eight weeks plus for any reduction in your original pain. Nite splinting and or pf stretching are very helpful during this recovery
