ESWT – Extracorporeal shockwave therapy is used to promote healing in horses and small animals with musculoskeletal problems, bone injuries and soft tissue injuries. The shockwaves generated through shockwave therapy are pressure waves that can be focused on the skin surface or to a specific tissue depth. ESWT has been proven to increase blood flow, relieve pain, increase tissue regeneration and promotes new blood vessel development. Shockwave therapy was originally used in human medicine and is now used to treat many equine musculoskeletal disorders including: tendon injuries, splints, navicular syndrome, suspensory ligament injuries, sesamoid and carpal fractures, back pain, and fibrotic myopathies.
