US FDA clearances:
Although ESWT has not been definitively shown to be effective, it has been approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the treatment of plantar fasciitis and tennis elbow. ESWT is noninvasive, has few adverse side effects, and is associated with a good recovery time in patients with chronic plantar fasciitis; however, it is not covered by most insurance plans.
