Google it! It's a thing they use to break up kidney stones. Basically, he ultrasounded it and saw what looked like some "calcification". So the idea is to break that up, and maybe that will get rid of the pain. But if it doesn't, then we go to the next level - PRP injection.

I should note that the Shockwave treatment wasn't exactly painful, but it's pretty intensely uncomfortable for a few minutes. It was like a little electric jackhammer pounding away at the most sensitive bit of my tendon.
