EWST seems the next step, but what kind and where?Posted by Paul S on 10/07/04 at 11:09 (161099)
I developed a fairly severe case of plantar faciaitis whuile training/running a marathon about 3 years ago. I have tried cortisone injection,orthotics,rest (no running for a year), 3 months of physical therapy, ART (applied release therapy) and still have the problem. An MRI done a year plus ago showed significant inflamation. Recent ultrasound suggested the same. Yes, I still try to run a little. I can get away with 30 minutes about 3 times a week without significant pain most of the time.
I am told the next step is either EWST or surgery but I think I like EWST better. I live in central VA, the Shenendoah Valley. Does anyone have a suggestion?

We have doctors in Va doing ESWT. If you would like additional information regarding ESWT just e-mail Dr. Z at foot.care @verizon.net and I will be very happy to have one of our ESWT coordinators contact you an arrange for an ESWT consultion in Va.

I had EWST done for my PF and it didn't work, maybe it will for you.
