    I have experinced Hugland’s deformity and sadly it changed my life. I was advised to take a shock wave sessions to break down this small bone enlargement at the back of my both heels. I did a twenty minute session for one heel and felt good for the first three days but pain slowly came back. I went back to the hospital and was told that they need to repeat the session but to be longer and in different heel points. So this what am going to do as I feel this the last thing to do before going to operation.
