I have a similar problem and am actively looking for an alternative to the plantar fasiectomy the doctor I'm seeing is proposing. I can't help but think these guys are, plain and simple, just in it for the money.

A guy in my office was telling me he went to a sports medicine doctor for his heel spurs and the doctor used a pen-like instrument with a big metal ball tip to basically crush the heel spurs without invasive surgery. He describes that the doctor pressed very hard back and forth over the affected area and that the heel spurs were obliterated.

If you send me a personalized E-Mail I will let you know further updates of this story. I live in the New York City area.
