Extracorporeal shock wave therapy for calcifying tendinitis of the shoulder

We prospectively studied extracorporeal shock wave therapy (ESWT) for calcific tendinitis of the shoulder in 46 consecutive patients. All patients were randomly divided into 2 groups: treatment and control. The 33 patients in the treatment group received 2 courses of ESWT at the energy density of 0.55 mJ/mm2 (1000 impulses). The control group underwent sham treatment with a dummy electrode (13 patients).
