Versatron Shock Wave Therapy
Pain Relief & Faster Healing
Extracorporeal shockwave therapy (ESWT) has become an emerging new technology for treating several types of injuries in horses.
Shockwave is a non-invasive, high-energy pressure wave treatment that causes a biological response in treated tissue that will stimulate and accelerate the healing process, while also relieving pain and making your horse more comfortable.
The shockwave machine generates high-intensity shock or pressure waves, which pulse to a specific site within the injured tissue. It can be used to treat various conditions, such as suspensory ligament desmitis, navicular disease, saucer fractures, bucked shins, bowed tendon, sesamoid fractures, stress fractures and vertebral spinal pain.
Shockwave allows for much deeper penetration than many other types of energy modalities. The pressure wave acts as a mechanical force at the cellular level causing the release of proteins which decreases inflammation, increases blood vessel formation, and aids in the recruitment of stem cells which positively regulate inflammatory proteins associated with osteoarthritis.
Shockwave Therapy benefits and treats:
- Tendon and ligament injuries
- Wound healing
- Bone healing. (also increasing bone density)
- Osteoarthritis/Degenerative Joint Disease
