Shockwave in Patellar Tendinopathy
Patellar Tendinopathy a common overuse injury that typically affects active individuals who play sports that involve a lot of jumping (e.g. volleyball or basketball) leading to the nickname “jumper’s knee”. Shockwave therapy is an effective treatment modality for this condition. A review of the literature shows that shockwave is a safe and effective treatment for patellar tendinopathy, particularly in those for whom other non-operative treatments have failed.
