I have had a heel spur for the last year. I have undergone PT, orthrotics, shot of cortisone all with some temepory relief. The pod suggested next line of treatment ESWT. My insurance compay will not pay because it is says there are conflicting results that raise doubts of the efficacy of ESWT for pts. with plantar fasciitis. Should I appeal? Have open surg?or suck it up and pay in cash? Any thoughts would be welcomed. thanks
