sonorex for tenosynovitis

Posted by Amy on 3/25/05 at 16:21 (171965)

I've been battling tenosynovitis of the flexor hallucis longus bilaterally for many months now - Doctor is now suggesting surgery or continuing conservative treatment by trying low energy sonorex on the inflammation. Any thoughts on this?

FYI - I have had the nerve conduction test to rule out TTS and all nerves are functioning normally.

Thanks for any and all opinions -

If one can obtain good targeting with the Sonorex on the area of pathology on flexor hallucis longus, I would go with the Sonorex if it was my foot.
