Ron:
The first site is excellent ad it is compendium of knowledge about shockwave therapy.
The second site is chock full of misinformation - vitrually lttle useful treatement information on Sever's disease. That site seems to favor surgery stating that 90% of EPF is without complication.
I don't know where such statistics were derived from. I am not sure how the author defines complications but obviously does not consider the procedure simply not working to be a complication.
