Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy
Extracorporeal shockwave therapy (ESWT) can help alleviate musculoskeletal pain. Using this non-invasive therapy, our practice can stimulate an animal’s soft-tissue or bone injury and promote healing, while decreasing the chance that disease will reoccur. ESWT uses the same technology that physicians use on human patients; the affected area is targeted with a wand that delivers pressurized wave pulses. These pulses create just enough force on the area to permeate soft tissue and fluid build-up and stimulate numerous metabolic processes.

- Bone cysts
