Re: ESWTherapy for PTTD?
After 6 years of plantar fasciitis and after exhausting all conservative treatments, I had ESWT in mid November. Unfortunately, I had a severe inflammatory reaction from the procedure and ended up in worse pain for nearly 4 months. Most people do not experience this. I have heard success stories as well as failure stories regarding ESWT.
Whether or not the ESWT has improved my condition I don't yet know because I had a cortisone injection prior to going on vacation in February.
The procedure itself was painless with a nerve block.
Good luck with your decision,
