After the acute phase of Tendonitis is over and healing has started there are other therapies, follow-up and prevention that needs to be done in order to keep the tendon healthy and to prevent tendonitis from reoccurring.

Your doctor may order extracorporeal shock wave therapy if you have calcific tendonitis (calcium deposits). This therapy is currently still being studied for its effectiveness.

During physical therapy ultrasound therapy may be used as it helps to loosen up the joint and promote greater range of motion during therapy.
