“This experience was nothing short of a miracle.” Shockwave gave me my life back! I was in so much pain prior to treatment I had to quit my job. The pain took over my life. This experience was nothing short of a miracle. Everyone was so kind and helpful. I highly suggest this to anyone suffering from Plantar Fasciitis. As of today (one year later) I am pain free. - Edith K.
