ESWT worked for me too

Posted by Jennifer L on 12/23/04 at 18:55 (166056)

I have been away from this board for quite some time, but I wanted to let people know that ESWT worked for me, too. I was lucky, my insurance covered the procedure. I had a high-energy treatment, and even though my PF was unusual (more pain in the arches than the heels) it still decreased the pain by 80%. Some days I get it back, if I go to the mall all day or if I wear high heels (for some reason this aggravates it). But for the most part it has improved my quality of life!!! And even if I get a little bit of pain back, it has never been half as bad as before. If I strain the PF, it recovers overnight. Before, if I overused it I would be in pain for a week.
