Shockwave therapy has been used in human medicine for many years with much success. Now, the same benefits of fast pain relief and restoration of healthy movement without the need for surgery or medications can be applied to our four-legged friends as well! Marina Village Veterinary is pleased to offer PulseVet shockwave technology to heal injured tissue, reduce lameness, increase mobility, and relieve pain in pets.
Despite what its name implies, shockwave therapy does not involve the use of any type of electric shock. Instead, it uses high-energy sound waves that penetrate the surface of the body and naturally promote the regeneration of soft tissue, tendons, and bones. Shockwave therapy is non-invasive and completely painless, yet it can produce noticeable results in as few as one to three treatment sessions.
At Marina Village Veterinary, we routinely use shock wave therapy to treat:
Shockwave therapy treatments are relatively quick and easy, typically lasting no more than ten minutes or so. The number of sessions your pet will require to achieve optimal benefits will depend on a number of factors, such as the condition being addressed, it’s severity, and other considerations. Our team will evaluate your pet’s unique situation and provide you with a customized treatment recommendation.
