The Sports and Pain clinic have several years experience using extracorporeal shock wave therapy machine to treat tendon pain. The clinic specialists use ultrasound to help diagnose tendinosis such as shoulder tendinosis, achilles tendinosis, plantar fasciitis, tennis elbow, golfers elbow and patella tendinosis. Treatments for tendinosis include managing muscle tenderness, treating the tendon using shockwave, muscle stretching and strengthening. Three sessions are required a week apart and it takes three weeks to see what effect this has made. If improvement has been seen then further sessions can be performed. Otherwise ultrasound guided sclerosing injections can be performed by the specialists at the clinic.
