plantar fasciitis

My wife has severe plantar fasciitis. She has had all of the conservatice treatments and we are now considering Ossatron treatments, however we live in VA and this teatment has not been approved here yet. We are looking at a clinic in Tennessee, but our insurance will not cover the $7000-8000 cost. What are your opinions on this treatment? I have heard that the success rate is the same as surgery and there is now a study that says it doesn't help at all. I want my wife to be relieved of the agony. Thank you for your response.
