Regenerative Extracorporeal Shock Wave technology (ESWT) is a non-invasive, high intensity, pressure wave regenerative medicine treatment. It helps the body in relieving pain, speeding healing and improve quality of healing . “Shock wave” is a physics term to describe a rapid increase of pressure, such as the energy from an explosion , or thunder resulting from lightening. “Shock wave” does not refer to electrical shock. ESWT provides a high energy, focused pressure wave that causes a biological response in treated tissue, which will stimulate and accelerate the healing process. We are proud to be able offer this technology to our clients. For more information you can follow the link here to Versatron or ask the doctors when/if this could be a valuable asset to your horse therapy.
Our clinic uses the gold standard in shock wave healing – the VersaTron system – which has been proven effective for treating such conditions as:
- Tendon and ligament injuries
