speaks volumes about that "shock wave " therapy though doesn't it ...
Its my guess it doesn't really work like it supposed to.
True, but hopefully -- if necessary -- it can get him through this season with follow up treatments every few weeks/months as needed, then next off season they will elect to have surgery to fix the problem permanently. Something I've wondered though is would surgery even fix the problem completely without any sort of follow-ups? I don't know much about the conidition, so that may be a stupid question.
But if there are no adverse long-term effects from the current treatment is it just as effective in terms of recurrances as surgery?
