Any experiences using ESWT for patella tendonitis

Posted by David P. on 6/01/02 at 10:39 (085999)

Inquiring to see if anyone has used the ESWT treatment for patella tendonitis problems.
I am considering this after having arthroscopic surgery (tendon debride) for patella tendionisis I
have had for about 18 months. The surgery did not help, as the pain is still their. My goal
is to get back to recreational running.

I have done a few cases. So long as that is the problem it should work very well. I feel very comfortable with procedure and the results have been excellent.
