For those of you fighting with your insurance companies for treatment of ESWT, you might be interested in hearing that the American College of Foot and Ankle Surgeons and the American Podiatric Medical Association have issued a joint policy statement 'endorsing the use of extracorporeal shock waves (ESW) for the treatment of plantar fasciitis, more commonly known as heel spurs or heel pain syndrome. This policy statement acknowledges ESW as ''revolutionizing the treatment of chronic heel pain, much the same way the lithotripter did for kidney stones in 1984.''
