Hi
I have plans for using ESWT and this treatment at the same time. Any patients that needs ESWT will receive this treatment at no additional charge. Anyone interested let me know by e-mailing Dr. Z at (email removed)

Steve:
The view of the problem as fasciosis is logical. They are using growth factors that are platelet derived. A corrollary to this would be to ask questions as to the influence of other hormones involved in the grwoth and maintainance of tissue: testosterone and growth hormone.

Hi Dr. Z,

I tried to email you today, but received a bounce-back standard msg. Being a former ESWT patient of yours that resulted in no improvement, I was wondering if I would be a candidate for APC?

Hi

Maybe? I will take a look at the ultrasound . Did you have have Radio Freg lesioning after ESWT with no relief.? I don't have your chart in front of me. I do remember you very well. Just though it would be much easier to ask you.

Dr. Z
