A recent study of patients with chronic plantar fasciitis using Extra- corporeal shockwave treatment to eliminate their pain shows that the long term results are very favourable using this method & its clinical application has been very successful when compared to other conservative treatments.
Available through Queensland Lithotripsy Services ( Q.L.S), this form of treatment has been available for around 14 years in Australia ,13 years at Q.L.S, with about 70% of patients showing good response to the treatment even after other conservative treatments have failed.
