ESWT and Ossa Tron

Posted by Don B. on 5/09/04 at 03:17 (150263)

Are they one and the same? I'm thinking of going to Canada for treatment. Has anyone done this and experienced relief? If so, for how long a time, thus far? Thanks.

Ossatron is one of the machines used for ESWT - the others are Dornier and Sonocur. If you go to Canada they will most likely use the Sonocur, which is a low energy machine (they don't need to numb your foot). Many people have experienced relief. The treatment has a success rate of around 80%.
