South African all-rounder JP Duminy would reportedly make use of the shock-wave therapy in order to aid the recovery of his troublesome left knee.

Media reports have claimed that the 30-year old middle-order batsman and off-spinner was withdrawn from the five-match ODI series against Australia due to a chronic patella tendinopathy to his left knee.

Duminy said that there is no conclusive rehabilitation program that would guarantee instant results, and added that they would have to see how the tendon responds over the next few weeks, Sport24 reported.

He also said that they would have to play it by ear in light of whether he would be ready to face the West Indian Islands in the first Test from 17th December at SuperSport Park in Centurion as South African number-six batsman and valuable fifth bowler.

South African team manager, Dr Mohammed Moosajee, recently explained that Duminy aggravated his long-standing knee injury during the current T20 series against Australia.

This is the same injury that plagued him during the Tri-series in Zimbabwe and caused him to miss the Champions League T20. Duminy said that wear and tear was a factor that caused the factor. The leg was also weakened as a result of the 7-month lay-off due to a patellar tendon rapture in Australia.
