Newsletter - Shockwave Therapy - September 2010

Print PDF

Shockwave therapy has become increasingly popular in equine medicine in the treatment of soft tissue injuries such as tendon and suspensory ligament sprains, orthopaedic pain relief (arthritis/navicular) and musculoskeletal disorders of the back to include sacroiliac strains and kissing spines. Shockwave therapy is also used as a non invasive treatment for angular limb deformities in foals.

Treatment is administered by a hand held probe linked to a compressor. The compressor generates a series of shock waves to encourage healing and provide pain relief during rehabilitation.

Tower Equine can provide a mobile shockwave therapy service in conjunction with EV Veterinary Products.
