Completely pain free now! took about 5 weeks to feel the difference!

Posted by Alena on 5/16/05 at 13:49 (175133)

Hi all, just wanted to share my wonderful news.
For the past year I was in severe pain, both feet, had injections and anti-inflamatory meds, nothing helped.
Found this doctor/center in NY (Dr. GRoss http://ussportsmed.com/index_ie.html)
Insurance accepted (about $5000 for 5 sessions), but its amazing, now I am completely pain free.
Sonic treatment takes about 8 min and thats it, after about 3-5 weeks, major improvement.
I know it does not work for all, but its worth trying!

What did he exactly treat you with Is this ESWT?

I am not sure of the actual spelling, but I think its called 'SoniqCure'?
Looks like - long arm with a blue plastic 10' diameter ball that was aiming at the area of pain and they used a clear gel for a better contact.
It felt like someone was hammering my foot (heel) for about 8 min, 5 visits, each foot.
I am completely pain free now, its been about 2 months.
If you need more info, please ask.

Regards

Specifically, what was your diagnosis? Was your treatment ESWT? I'm considering it for PF and am interested to find others who have done it and their results.

Thanks.

My diagnoses were 'inflamed plantar fasciitis', not ripped, but I could not walk properly and was in constant pain. And yes the treatment I got was ESWT. The results as I mentioned, completely pain free after 5 treatment and 5 week period.

Regards
