Calcific Tendinopathy is one of the more unusual conditions we see, and occurs when chalk like substances start developing into crystals within the tendons of the body. Any tendon can be affected, but the rotator cuff muscles of the shoulder are one of the most common sites. If this ever has to be removed surgically, it comes out like toothpaste!
At Dural Health, we are now offering Shockwave Therapy to help better manage people in the Dural, Glenhaven, and Kenthurst communities with painful tendon conditions. This treatment works by using high energy sound waves that can help break up calcifications in tendons, and encourage the the cells to heal inside.
