It has been discussed many times on this board - I don't remember anyone getting lasting relief from it.

I've tried it and it gave some temporary relief. If ound it to be like some chiropractors.....they wnat you to keep coming back at $65 a visit. I tried it for twice a week for a coupel of weeks and then once a week for probably a month. The pain subsided for a day ot 2 and then was back and got worse. I felt it was definitley worth a try and am glad I tried it.

After my second treatment I can feel the difference. I am taking time off from running so this combination should heal my PF. On my second visit, he increased the intensity and it did make a difference.
