BACKGROUND Extracorporeal shock-wave therapy (ESWT) represents a valid intervention in the treatment of people with supraspinatus calcifying tendinitis (SCT), but there is limited evidence for the useful range of ESWT doses. OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to compare 2 different ranges of energy flux density in treatment of SCT with ESWT. DESIGN This study was designed as a single-blind randomized clinical trial. SETTING This study was performed in a university hospital. PATIENTS… CONTINUE READING
