To one week post ESWT

Posted by Buck T. on 1/15/04 at 09:56 (142071)

Hi Holly: Had ESWT 10 weeks ago and slowly improving. But had several flar-ups that were discouraging. ESWT only part of treatment. Folks above know more about this. But orthotics, heat, massage and maybe yoga ankle exercises might help.

So you are showing improvement? when did you notice any improvement? I'm at five weeks and still waiting. do you ever get burning pain on the side (outside) of your foot?

Hi Ron: Didn't see your post until just now. Felt 'better' from start. But this means less pain generally interspersed with about 3 flareups lasting maybe two days. I'm at 12 week mark now and same continues. I use night splint, yoga I can do, new orthotics, heat only. Don't know if ESWT working for sure, but feel it is, so take one day at a time.

No, I didn't get burning pain on outside of foot. How are you doing?
