At the 3 months follow-up, there were significantly reduced VAS scores at rest (p = 0.018) and walking (p= 0.014), and improvement in the US+DP findings in 2526 patients. One patient required surgery due to ongoing pain during activity and no tendon healing on US+DP. The 6‑month follow-up revealed that 2526 patients were satisfied with the treatment result.
