Olympic Runner Carrie Tollefson Used Sonocur Treatment for Heel Pain

Carrie Tollefson is an American middle distance runner who was on the US 2004 Summer Olympic team. She suffered from plantar fasciitis and used a Sonocur for her treatment back in 2003 before the Olympics. Here is an article from Running Times Magazine about her comback : http://runningtimes.com/Article.aspx?ArticleID=3764

In terms of treatment, Tollefson’s medical team left no known mode of plantar fasciitis therapy untried: iontophoresis, cortisone shots, acupuncture, active-release therapy, icing, and Sonorex shockwave treatments from Dr. Bill Roberts, which Tollefson credits more than anything else with her eventual recovery.
