Shockwave therapy helps horses heal faster and optimize their physical performance. It’s a non-invasive hands-on therapy method that gives you control throughout the treatment process for maximum effectiveness and comfort of your patients.
Shockwave therapy uses sound waves that penetrate deeper than ultrasound or lasers to stimulate tissue regeneration and bone healing for faster and improved treatment results. It increases the blood flow to affected areas – leading to the development of new blood vessels –, stimulates collagen, and dissolves calcium build-up to treat the root cause of injury. Shockwave therapy is drug-free, significantly alleviates pain, and produces more pressure for the long-term health of your patients.
Examples of equine-specific conditions treated:
- Ligament, tendon, and muscle strains
- Bucked shins
- Scar tissue
- Neck, back, and joint pain
