ossatron bi-lateral

Posted by susanh on 7/06/05 at 12:06 (177917)

I am about to have ossatron procedure due to planter fascitis. I am concerned about have it done bi-laterally due to recovery. How do you feel about bi-lateral ossatron?

I use the dornier and will perform bilateral plantar fasciosis if they both need the procedure. The duration of pain, lack of conservative response to treatment and ultrasound finding are all important factors when determining if ESWT is needed whether it is a single foot or bilateral.

Do you have first step morning pain and pain and discrete pain at the pf orgina with examination. I also want to add that if you have severe pain and need both doing only one foot can be a mistake
