What about soundwaves for heel pain?

Posted by Rose D. on 12/29/04 at 18:20 (166282)

I've heard about soundwave treatment for heel pain.What information can you give me on this treatment ? I have had cortisone shots and have taken Bextra for the last 2yrs. off and on .This just seems to be a temporary fix. This is why I am inquiring about soundwave treatment.
Thank you, Desperately Seeking

Hi Rose,

We have used ESWT with the Dornier Epos Ultra for the past five years. I find it very effective for chronic heel pain such as yours. If you would like written information about our group just e-mail Dr. Z at footcare@ comcast.net. If you have any specific questions feel free to just ask.

both of my heel hurts bad, but the right one hurts the most.
