Spring 2018 News & Shockwave Therapy

Though the weather doesn’t seem to want to cooperate, spring is right around the corner. There are a few specials and reminders below for your information.

We are excited to offer the ProPulse Shockwave– Save 30% during March and April!

We are now able to offer this service to your farm to help decrease pain and improve performance in your equine athletes without referral to a hospital. For March and April, we are offering the service for only 25 cents a pulse, versus the normal 35 cents. Normal Shockwave treatments can require 1000-2000 pulses depending on the area treated. It can be utilized as a non-invasive treatment for a degenerative joint disease, chronic pain, navicular syndrome, back pain, ligament and tendon injuries and non-healing wounds. Most results last for 8-12 months with 1-3 treatments depending on the disorder. It is a great alternative to invasive joint injections as well.

Here is an excerpt from DVM360 Magazine on Shockwave:

“Extracorporeal shock wave therapy (ESWT) has become an emerging new technology for treating musculoskeletal problems, soft-tissue injuries and bone injuries in horses. ESWT is non-invasive, used to stimulate healing to return horses to a level of a full sound, useful activity without recurrence of a disease. From outside the body (extracorporeal), the machine generates high-intensity shock or pressure waves, which pulse to a specific site within the injured tissue.” “It stimulates and accelerates the healing process, essentially combining an immediate analgesic effect with a reduction in inflammation, neovascularization in soft tissue and osteogenesis in bone. According to Dr. Scott McClure, DVM, Iowa State University, a leading researcher in the field, 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 (kissing spine lesions).”
