eswt contraindicated for tarsal tunnel syndrome?

Posted by Jeff S on 11/22/04 at 10:44 (164542)

Hi I have been diagnosed with TTS and PF my doctor wants to try eswt. Is there any reason not to do this if I also have TTS. Does it matter what machine to use, low energy or high? Thank you very much.

Jeff:
One can have TTS and PF and have the PF treated via ESWT despite the presence of TTS. If you read the ESWT board you will see a variance of opinions on which machine to use. My personal observations is that all of the machines work.
