Calcific Tendonitis

I had experienced pain for a significant number of years from calcific tendonitis in both shoulders.  Over the years, the pain had interrupted sleep, and interfered with all daily activities, including driving.  I had received some relief for short periods from steroid injections, but the pain escalated and became severe, with almost complete immobility in one shoulder.  After a course of Shock Wave Therapy, I have an excellent range of movement in both shoulders, with minimal discomfort.  My quality of life has therefore radically improved.  The therapy itself was not particularly unpleasant, and I obtained considerable relief within days after the first treatment.  I had previously avoided a referral to an orthopaedic surgeon, because for various reasons I was reluctant to undergo definitve surgery.  I wish that I had previously known of the existence and availability of Shock Wave Therapy.  For anyone with a suitable condition, I would most highly recommend it.
