How does it work?
A high-powered focused acoustic wave is generated through the tissue which when treating injuries has an action which both stimulates healing and has a pain killing effect.
What is it used for?
The most common use in horses is for treatment of proximal suspensory ligament injuries (suspensory desmitis). Shockwave therapy is often used in conjunction with rest and other therapies to help return the horse to soundness.
Our shockwave machine is completely portable and can be brought out to your yard. The treatment can be uncomfortable and so horses are always sedated.
