Shoulder pain is very common and has a number of different causes. It can also be a symptom for another problem. Some of the reasons for shoulder pain include poor posture, frozen shoulder, shoulder instability, osteoarthritis, rotator cuff disorders and more. ESWT is particularly effective for treating areas where the tissue density changes such as where a tendon is joined to a bone and where a bone attaches to a ligament. For this reason it delivers outstanding results for painful inflammation of connective tissue in the shoulder. ESWT is often considered medically necessary for those who have calcific tendinitis of the shoulder that has failed to respond to conservative therapies such as rest, medications and ice.
Extracorporeal shockwave therapy (ESWT) is an alternative non-surgical approach to pain relief that we regularly use to cure common foot problems such as heel pain, Achilles tendinitis and plantar fasciitis. It’s rapidly growing in popularity with over 90 percent of patients experiencing a reduction in their pain. Because it’s a non-invasive treatment which is performed outside of the body, it promotes a faster healing time and offers fewer possible side effects. Read on to find out more about the conditions we can treat with ESWT.
