Deep Patella Bursitis + Tendonitis: Is ESWT - effective?

Posted by LindaK on 7/10/04 at 19:41 (155064)

My husband has been in bed for over 5 weeks and diagnosed with deep petalle bursitis and tendonitis. He has been on anti-inflammatory medications, Prednisone and anti-biotics and nothing has helped the pain and swelling. He can't walk or put his leg down on the floor. Is ESWT effective for the bursitis? I have read that it helps tendonitis. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated. Kindly e-mail me privately at (email removed). Thank you so much!
