shock-wave therapy

Posted by Janet on 1/29/99
Hi all. My physical therapist thinks I may have a case of nerve entrapment, or at least nerve irritation, in addition to the PF. I have some tingling in my heels--not 24/7, but at least once every other day. Additionally, I do believe I have PF as I have all the right symptoms in all the right places. At any rate, does anyone know if shock-wave therapy is at all successful with nerve inflamation? If not what is the best way to proceed in diagnosing and treating an irritation/entrapment of the calcaneal nerve? I had an EMG, which was normal. X-rays are all normal. Thanks 07:50:58
