Can ultra sound eliminate heel pain?

With my experience, I haven't seen ultrasound eliminate heel pain. Ultrasound should be used as an adjunct to a primary treatment technique to the area. There is the shock wave therapy that is used for heel pain and plantar fascitis(osis) that can be quite effective.

A follow-up question: can the ultra-sound, or ESWT, remove a bone spur that might have created/aggravated an achilles tendinitis problem? And can this be an alternative to surgery? And, how would I find out who is currently applying this technology in my neck of the woods. Thanks.
