Has anyone tried shockwave therapy for psoas tendonitis?
« on: February 03, 2019, 01:21:32 PM »
I am sick of this pain and not being able to lift my leg as I want. Fortunately I can still do a lot of things, but I need to figure out what to try and where to start. I have tried PT.  No help. Iím trying another PT who does dry needling. Iím thinking of trying shockwave therapy. Iíve had good success with this on my Achilles before, but I donít see any data of it being used on psoas tendonitis with or without hip replacement or resurfacing.

I would also like to know if anyone has had psoas lengthening surgery and whether that was successful.

Thanks!

I recently had a psoas injection it has helped reduce some of the pain. The injections are hot or miss. Have you tried injection in the past?

Thanks,

Larry

I had a steroid injection. The dr said if he put it in my joint it would reach the psoas tendon but it didnít. I donít want to try again bcs I just ruptured my rotator cuff (shoulder) after having a couple steroid injections.

Iíve had shock wave treatment, it didnít help.

Have you tried. Tri-nitrate patches? The studies support this.

Iíve done prp, stem cells, tri nitrate, shock wave, Physio/eccentric loading to no avail. Iím having a surgical release next month.

If itís not too bad youlll have a good chance of fixing it. Slow and steady rehab.

Forgot to say, I had my other psoas release surgery for impingement in October. Central compartment release. It worked but I then got scar tissue so im having it redone next month along with my other psoas for tendinopathy. 

The surgery was very easy. I just overdid the rehab.
