Mullica Hill, NJ – Excellence Shock Wave Therapy, the first company to offer high energy office-based Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy (ESWT) in the United States, has treated thousands of people suffering from debilitating pain since 2000 with an extraordinarily high degree of success. Providing High Energy ESWT using the Dornier Epos Ultra, the solution works by harnessing intense but short energy waves to heal many chronic painful orthopedic conditions. Non-surgical and non-invasive, the procedure is fast and painless, and provides a great alternative to invasive surgery.
The company is particularly proud to announce its recent successful treatment of a patient suffering from chronic calcific shoulder tendonitis. Degenerative tissue and the calcific deposits in the tendons at the top of the upper arm bone (humerus) was causing severe pain and restriction of movement in the shoulder.
This ‘before and after’ photo shows the patient’s painful calcified shoulder tendonitis. A large spur is visible in the first x-ray and no spur in the ‘after’ photo, which was taken six months later.
Single treatment, high energy ESWT has been shown to be more effective to create this type of repair than traditional arthroscopic surgery, without the common complications of surgery. ESWT is well-documented in being an effective tool to relieve the pain of this debilitating condition.
With high energy ESWT with Dornier Epos Ultra, the tendon was repaired and the shockwaves broke up the spur.” says company Director of ESWT Technology, Dr. David Zuckerman.
The patient in question followed up with feedback for Excellence Shock Wave Therapy six months after receiving the shockwave treatment:
“I thought you would be happy to know that I feel 95% healed! I have a complete range of motion with almost zero pain.
“To refresh your memory, my calcium deposits had been slowly growing over time, and almost tripled in size in five years. They were initially 9.4 mm in March 2013 and 24.5 mm in February 2018. My orthopedic surgeon said they were the largest deposits he had ever seen. I had been doing steroid shots over the years, and they initially helped me a good bit, but eventually stopped working. It had gotten to the point where the deposits even caused a slight tear in the rotator cuff.
“You performed ESWT in May, and six months later the calcium is almost non-existent. I have practically no pain now, and complete range of motion. “Thank you so much for providing this therapy for your patients. I am so grateful to have avoided surgery!”
Excellence Shock Wave Therapy has received countless glowing testimonials from many other former patients for a variety of treatments including Plantar Fasciitis, Achilles Tendonitis, Tennis Elbow, and more. Testimonials can be viewed on the website.
“We are thrilled to be able to help our patients become free of pain and get back to living normal lives,” comments Denise Ashcraft, Director of Patient Services. “And after 18 years, it’s still just as much a miracle to us as it is to our patients!”
