What does shock wave do for animals?
Shockwave therapy, or extracorporeal shockwave therapy (ESWT) regarded by veterinary community as useful in treating musculoskeletal injuries, osteoarthritis (OA), and wound healing in horses, as well as pets as dogs.
- Chronic heel Pain relief
- Lateral Epicondylitis
- Achilles Tendonitis
- Plantar Fasciitis
- Tennis Elbow
Usages of shock wave therapy machine in veterinary region
shockwaves are high-energy sound waves (acoustic energy) that are directed to a target treatment area on an animal’s body. The shockwaves trigger the body’s own repair mechanisms, which speeds healing and provides long-term improvement. The high-intensity sound waves interact with the tissues of the body, leading to a host of beneficial effects including development of new blood vessels, reversal of chronic inflammation, stimulation of collagen and dissolution of calcium build-up. This activity creates an optimal healing environment, and as the damaged area returns to normal, pain is alleviated and functionality is restored. When shockwave therapy is applied to areas of non-healing tissue, it may trigger release of acute cytokines that stimulate healing. Accompanying pain relief may be the result of increased serotonin activity in the dorsal horn (located in the spinal cord).
Shockwave therapy is effective to following typical companion animal conditions:
Hip and elbow dysplasia
Osteoarthritis in stifles, hips, backs, etc
Painful scar tissue
Degenerative joint disease on hip and elbow
Chronic back pain
Spondylosis (degeneration of joints in the spine)
Sesamoiditis (chronic inflammation of bones in the foot)
Tendon and ligament injuries
Chronic wound care as sports injury
Non-union or Delayed-healing of Fractured Bones
Legg-Calve-Perthes disease (degeneration of the head of the femur bone in the hind leg)
Non-healing (non-union) or delayed healing (delayed union) fractures
Acupressure points (targeted)
Model: BS-SWT2X / BS-SWTX
Smallest shock wave machine, with single or dual channel output by seperate applicators. As many as 38 or more customized protocols, easy to use.
Extracorporeal shockwave therapy system, air compressor inside, pulse energy up to 5Bar and adjustable per 0.1Bar, frequency up to 22Hz, adjustable per 1Hz.
Full dimension shock wave machine, high energy, output pressure is more stable in long time operation. With trolley it is more easy to move.
