Clinical Trial Summary

Extra corporeal shock wave therapy is a treatment method in which high-amplitude sound waves are focused on the targeted body tissue Recently, Extra corporeal shock wave therapy has been proposed as an alternative treatment in patients not responding to pharmaceutical treatment.High power pain threshold ultrasound is the use of therapeutic ultrasound in a continuous mode; with the probe placed directly on affected area (supraspinatus tendon)


Clinical Trial Description

Shock wave therapy is an effective method of dissolving calcification and stimulating tissue healing. Extra corporeal shock wave therapy is a treatment method in which high-amplitude sound waves are focused on the targeted body tissue Recently, Extra corporeal shock wave therapy has been proposed as an alternative treatment in patients not responding to pharmaceutical treatment.US have been widely used for more than 40 years in the treatment of musculoskeletal disorders such as tendinitis, tenosynovitis, epicondylitis, bursitis and osteoarthritis. High power pain threshold ultrasound is the use of therapeutic ultrasound in a continuous mode; with the probe placed directly on affected area (supraspinatus tendon) "the intensity of ultrasound is first increased to the threshold pain level (to 1.5 W/cm) and then reduced to one half of that intensity. It was kept at that level for 4 to 5 seconds and then reduced to the half-intensity level for another 15 seconds . ;
