Researchers suggest physical flaws result from repetitive strain, leading to microscopic tears which initiate a reparative process in acute injuries. If repetitive strain continues, the normal healing event is hindered and results in chronic tendinosis

Shockwave therapy helps healing the tendinosis in the body 

In the past 10 to 15 years, shockwave therapy had emerged as the leading choice in the treatment of many orthopedic disorders including proximal plantar fasciitis of the heel , lateral epicondylitis of the elbow , calcific tendinitis of the shoulder  and. non-union of long bone fracture . More recently, the use of shockwave had expanded to the treatment of patellar tendinopathy (jumper's knee) and Achilles tendinopathy , and avascular necrosis of the femoral head
