Several joints are working in harmony with tendons and muscles to give the shoulder a wide range of motion. When even one of these parts gets affected, the ability to move is hindered.
The rotator cuff is made up of four muscles. Sometimes the extension of those muscles, called tendons, get irritated and damaged, making it very difficult to do simple tasks such as lifting a cup of coffee, brushing your hair, or getting dressed.
Shockwave therapy has proven to be a cost and time effective treatment for shoulder pain. Storz Medical has developed transmitters that are used with the MASTERPULS® line, available at Shockwave Canada, to treat typical pressure wave indications such as shoulder pain.
