Shockwave

Equine Shockwave Therapy

Shockwave therapy is a treatment modality used by equine veterinarians to treat some tendon and ligament injuries in the leg. Shockwaves are created by a machine and a veterinarian guides the waves over the injured area for a specific amount of time. Shockwaves improves the healing time of tendon and ligament injuries by increasing blood supply to the damaged area. Shockwave therapy typically involves multiple treatments with the device over a period of weeks or months to assist with healing of the injured area.
