After several YEARS of dealing with this, a little lady from a beauty shop told me about the shock wave treatment she got in Texas one winter and how her heels had not hurt since.....my orthopaedic doctor in Paducah, KY referred me to Dr. A. Brian Thompson at Vanderbilt's foot and ankle facility in Nashville, TN. I had one heel done in 2008 and the other one done in 2009. I wish I had known I could have had both done at the same time. I am very happy with the recovery! No pain unless I REALLY over-do!
