Shockwave Therapy

Shockwave therapy is modern non-invasive solution for problems associated with the musculoskeletal system. This method is well-known in human medicine for many years due to great results in orthopedics, rehabilitation and sport medicine.

The main medical effects of shockwave therapy:

  • Analgesic effect – elimination of pain
    • Decrease of muscle tension
    • Inhibition of nociceptive fibers
  • Acceleration of healing
    • Enhanced collagen production
    • Improved metabolism and microcirculation
  • Mobility restoration
    • Enhances re-absorption of calcium deposits

Medical studies show that shockwave therapy is also effective, non-invasive alternative for the treatment of common orthopedic conditions in dogs and horses.

The benefits of shockwave therapy:

  • Gentle and effective treatment
  • No anesthetics required
  • No side effects
  • Non-invasive treatment
  • Significant relief from pain

Indications in horses:

  • Insertion desmopathies
  • Tendinopathy
  • Calcifications
  • Fractures such as sesamoid bone fractures
  • Dorsal metacarpal disease
  • (stress-, fatigue- and microfractures)
  • Exostosis
  • Degenerative joint disease such as
  • ring bones and bone spavins
  • Caudal heel pain syndrome such as navicular disease
  • Angular limb deformities
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Osteochondrosis
  • Osteoporosis
  • Myopathy
  • Pseudarthrosis / Fissures
  • Back pain such as dorsal spinal process and painful sacroiliac problems
  • Scars

Indications in small animals:

  • Hip and elbow dysplasia
  • Degenerative joint disease (hip, elbow, stifle)
  • Spondylosis
  • Tendonitis
  • Legg-Calv-Perthes Disease
  • Non-union or delayed-healing of fractured bones (Pseudarthrosis)
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Sesamoiditis
  • Chronic back pain
