Shockwave therapy is the use of high-energy shockwaves at the cellular level to accelerate healing, improve blood flow, and provide pain relief. In humans, shockwave therapy is FDA approved for plantar fasciitis and tennis elbow. For dogs and cats, it also can be used for the following applications:
• Joint injuries
• Chronic back pain/LS disease
• Non-union or delayed-healing bone fractures
• Tendon/Ligament injuries
• Chronic wounds (lick granulomas)
The procedure is performed under light sedation and typically takes about 10 minutes for one to two sites. We typically recommend one to three treatments, two to three weeks apart. It may cause discomfort for 24-48 hours after procedure. Our shockwave unit is made by a respected name in shockwave therapy, PulseVet.
