Thank you, Dr. Lora Baker and Excellence Shock Wave Therapy. After five years of on-again-off-again chronic plantar fasciitis, ESWT did the trick. Almost every doctor at Allentown Family Foot Care had worked with me to try to alleviate the pain, without surgery. I have several pairs of custom orthotics, which I still use in almost every pair of shoes. Each treatment, including shots, worked, for a while. Dr. Baker convinced me to give the ESWT a shot. It took four months post-treatment for me to feel relief. With each follow-up visit, she promised the "magic" would happen and patiently encouraged me to be patient! I still need to stretch, wear shoes ALL the time, ice sometimes and other plantar tricks. But I would say my heel is 90% “normal” and I can hike and bike again. Yeah! Just in time to travel cross-country to visit National Parks.
