Shock Wave is a non-invasive procedure that utilizes the production of acoustic sound waves to produce high-pressure waves that are focused at a point of tissue or bone to stimulate healing. Studies have shown that it reduces inflammation, thereby reducing pain as it promotes healing. It has also been beneficial in shortening recovery times.
Shock Wave has been used successfully in the treatment of the following conditions: bowed tendons (tendonitis), suspensory ligament injuries (desmitis), stress fractures, splint bone fractures or splint exostosis, bone spavin (hock arthritis), navicular syndrome, sacroiliac conditions (Hunters Bumps), overriding spines (Withers), and primary back pain.
