Shockwave Therapy

Shockwave therapy is a noninvasive therapeutic technique that uses sound waves to stimulate healing and reduce inflammation in wounds, ligaments, tendons, bones, and joints.

Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy For Horses

Extracorporeal shockwave therapy (ESWT) has been documented to have regenerative and analgesic effects on bone and soft tissue.

Shock waves are high-energy acoustic waves that create micro trauma to increase blood supply, modulate inflammatory processes, stimulate regeneration, promote healing, decrease pain, increase the immune response in acute injuries and jump-start the immune system in chronic injuries.

VetweRx Equine utilizes shockwave therapy for a variety of conditions.
