Hi Mary

We have used ESWT for this specific Achilles tendon problem. I have personally used this technique with very effective pain relief since 1999.
If you would like to discuss this on the board or e-mail me at (email removed) I would be happy to answer any questions you may have about this non surgical procedure.
