Your calcific tendinitis may resolve on its own over time. The goal of our sports medicine and orthopedic team is to manage your pain and get you back to your normal activities as quickly as possible. In extreme cases, we may recommend minimally invasive surgery.

Overview

Your initial treatment may include rest, heat and ice, and medicine to control your pain and inflammation.  We may use ultrasound imaging to break up and suck out your deposits. We also may consider shock wave therapy, which uses sound waves to break up deposits. If your symptoms get worse, we can remove the deposits with arthroscopic surgery, which minimizes your recovery time.
