Our expert says:
of all the things the surgeon said the most painful is usually calcium deposits in the tendon of the shoulder. If you look at our website (www.shoulderinstitute.co.za) see under Calcific tendinitis and see if that fits your problem. if so the calcium can be removed with needling or arthroscopic surgery with excellent pain relief
