Swimming Post ESWT?Posted by dud on 10/05/04 at 17:32 (161028)
I had ESWT on my left foot 2 weeks ago. Prior to having the procedure, I was swimming about 3 times a week for about an hour a session (Freestyle, Backstroke, and Breastroke).
I wonder how long I should wait until swimming again? I definetly will not push off the wall with my feet on the turns but I wonder if the actual kicking motion with my feet could harm the heeling if I start too soon?
I am thinking of waiting another two weeks before I start back...
Any thoughts?? THANKS!!

I would go with what your doc requests but would not ask any of my ESWT patients to stop swimming.
