Have suffered with plantar fasciitis for over 8 years with every method of treatment (to include plantar fascitomy) not to mention numerous customized orthotics, anti-inflammatories, MANY steroid injections, exercises, etc. To no avail! Would like to find someone in my area to talk with regarding the ESWT (OK or AR). If you have suggestions please email me.
Thanks

Thank you. I will try those. However, I have been in phone conversation with Pain Free ESWT this am and am seriously considering a trip to Canada.
Any input there?

The Canadians use primarily low energy ESWT and do a fine job in my opinion.

Thank you, Ed. Where are you located? Might I ask what your ESWT procedure is?
