Chronic shoulder tendinitis 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 lives
Acoustic SoftWave® therapy, delivers consecutive unfocused acoustic waves, which carry high energy impulses to painful or injured myoskeletal tissues. This therapy is useful with subacute, subchronic and chronic conditions. The energy promotes regeneration and reparative processes of the bones, tendons and other soft tissues. Extracorporeal Acoustic wave therapy is not a new concept, in fact, it is over 30 years old and was first used in medicine for the treatment of kidney stones (lithotripsy). The main assets of EASWT are fast pain relief and mobility restoration. As a non-invasive treatment and requiring no pain killers or medications, it is an ideal therapy to speed up recovery, treat pain and heal injuries.
In most cases patients just need as little as 3 treatments to have complete pain relief.
