If the pain is coming from the tendon area in your shoulder or the tendon in your hip ESWT may be indicated. If you pain is strictly from any significant degenerative joint disease then ESWT isn't going to benefit you. Only an examination by a doctor with ESWT experience in these areas will a definite treatment path be determined
