Calcific Tendinitis in the Shoulder is a relatively common condition in Australia & New Zealand. Some studies have shown that up to 20% of people may have calcium present in their rotator cuff tendon, but only half of them get symptoms. It is said that the pain from Calcific Shoulder Tendinitis is one of the worst pains a person can experience in the shoulder.
Calcific Shoulder Tendinitis primarily affects people between 30-40 years old, and has a higher incidence in people living with diabetes. It also affects women more commonly than men.
Several treatment methods are being used to treat this condition. One type of treatment, Radial Pressure Wave Therapy (Shockwave), has become effective in the management of Calcific Shoulder Tendinitis.
How Can Radial Pressure Waves Treat Calcific Tendinits?
Shockwave Therapy is one way to treat Calcific Tendinitis. Several clinical studies show that Shockwave Therapy can reduce shoulder pain and has been effective in dissolving calcifications. For best results, we recommend using Shockwave Therapy combined with other standard physiotherapy treatment.
