EXtracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy?

Posted by rose2023 @rose2023, Oct 19 6:08pm

Has anyone tried Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy? If so for what conditions? My physiologist just gave me a brochure. I suffer from fibro, myofacial pain. I get epidural injections and trigger point in SI joint as well.

Interested in more discussions like this? Go to the Chronic Pain Support Group.

I haven’t tried it yet but my hip dr has recommended it for a full thickness tear in my gluteus medial tendon after years of steroids. But I read that it shouldn’t be done on side of hip transplant so I have to look into that. I have SI joint problems too and just underwent a SI nerve ablation. I also have Meralgia Parasthetica, which is so painful I can hardly cope. I don’t know where to go for help with that. Hope it works out for you.


What is Meralgia Parasthetica?


What treatment do you get for your facial pain and is it helpful?
