Abstract

Patients who have had successful treatment for either chronic heel pain (plantar fasciitis) or humeral epicondylitis subsequently were evaluated for a comparable problem in the contralateral heel or elbow. Patients who had experienced symptoms in the contralateral heel or elbow for a shorter period were less likely to have a positive result from shock wave therapy than those patients who had received treatments for more chronic symptoms.
