L'efficacité de la thérapie par ondes de choc extracorporelles dans la prise en charge kinésithérapique des tendinopathies chroniques

Abstract : Background: Chronic tendinopathies with persistent symptoms are very present in the population and impact subjects quality of life’s. In physiotherapy, extracorporeal shock waves are often used to treat these pathologies but their effectiveness is not scientifically proven and opinions in the literature are disputed. Purpose: The aim of this literature review is to assess the effectiveness of shock wave treatment in chronic tendinopathies by comparing the results of several scientific articles that have conducted randomized clinical trials, and to review the current literature on the subject. Method and investigation: In this literature review, the documentary sources investigated are the online scientific databases : PubMed, Cochrane Library, Sciences Direct, PEDro et Kinedoc over a period of 20 years. Books were also used to develop this review. Results: A total of 4 studies and 355 patients were included in this work. The results are perfectly torned with 2 articles which show significant results in favor of the effectiveness of this therapy and 2 articles which consider shock waves to be ineffective. CONCLUSION : Results obtained in this review of literature raised on the issue by physiotherapists, and neither confirm or deny the effectiveness of shock waves in the treatment of chronic tendinopathies. Results remain to be qualified due to the existence of bias in some studies but also in the performance of this work and the lack of clinical relevance of most. Therefore, it would be interesting to carry out better conducted studies, with a precise protocol for applying shock waves in order to standardize the results.
