Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy

I have been struggling with insertional achilles tendonitis for some time now and nothing I do seems to alleviate the pain. I was wondering if anyone on here has any experience with this kind of therapy? If so was it successful?

    South west Ontario but I appreciate the offer! I have my first treatment tomorrow and I'm glad to hear it's effective.

    Like any external treatment method it's mildly effective at best. But worth checking it off your list... look beyond your Achilles/calf. Ask yourself why your achilles can't handle to load of running (local or peripheral weakness, excessive stress through the ankle joint making it relatively weak). IAT is notoriously difficult to treat since its so easy to aggravate. It takes time. Time off running doesn't necessarily help because it makes you weak and weakness usually relates to pain. Staying positive, strength/mobility of everything, and a progressive return to running will help. A couple other helpful notes: 1) calm down then build back up 2) hurt doesn't necessarily equal harm (you might need to run through it!). Lastly here's a decent link for more info: http://www.running-physio.com/insertional-achilles-tendinopathy/

    I've had it done on both feet to cure plantar fasciitis with a great deal of success. 10/10 would recommend.
