In the present study, we aimed to compare the effects of ESWT and LLLT on pain, functional status, and plantar fascia thickness in the treatment of PF.
From November 2008 to March 2015, all applications of high energy extracorporeal shock wave therapy (ESWT) produced by an electrohydraulic device, OssaTron (High Medical Technology, Alpharetta, GA), were recorded.
In this study, we aimed to assess the short-term clinical and radiological outcomes of ESWT in patients with earlystage ONFH.
Since both ESWT and MSCT can be an approach for ED treatment by paracrine growth factors to promote cellular proliferation, we have reasons to believe that combination of both for ED treatment will get a better result.
