needling procedure for Calc Tendonitis

Hi doctor

I had a needling procedure done about a month ago and am experiencing what seems like muscular pain in the shoulder, it has its good and bad days but can be quite sore at times. I ahve been taking muscle relaxants, which sometimes work.
How long does it take for recovery after this procedure?

Dear Kari,

There is no rule after the needling procedure: some patients are bettet very soon and others take much longer. Unfortunately needlling is not successful in every single patient. By this time you should have a new X-ray to check if the calcium has absorbed at all. You may look at our website for more information about the conition:
