How do I load a tendinopathy during/after shockwave treatment?

Are there certain patients who would benefit from a period of ‘not running’, versus ‘managing’ running loads during the shockwave period. For example a person with x pain, with condition x weeks/months, with an event in either a short or longer time away.

Is shockwave something to try if someone has a long distance event in 4-6 weeks with an acute onset of plantar fascia or patella tendon pain? Would that help any more than any other modality or approach?

Regarding any potential ‘weakness’ in the tendon post-shockwave, is this theoretical or of clinical significance? Is a person at risk if they train after having shockwave?
