Chronic shoulder tendonitis refers to degenerative tissue in one of the tendons at the top of the upper arm bone (humerus). Sometimes the tendon causes pain; in other cases calcification restricts movement in the shoulder.
The effects of ESWT are best documented in areas of changes in tissue density, such as those where a tendon attaches to a bone (enthesiopathies) and where a bone attaches to a ligament (desmopathies). For this reason, it is very effective for painful connective tissue in the shoulder.
Additionally, ESWT gives new hope by relieving pain, eliminating the risk factors associated with surgery and allowing people to resume their normal livesContact us to find out if ESWT is right for you.
I was very happy to have this procedure done. I can now almost keep up with my kids. I would definitely recommend ESWT to anyone suffering like I did.
