Shockwave: Clinical Applications

 An overview of Shockwave Therapy  applications for small animal musculoskeletal injury rehabilitation

 

What You'll Learn

The treatment of orthopedic disorders plays an important role in small animal medicine. Shockwave Therapy is one of the few medical technologies which treats pain syndromes of the musculoskeletal system by repeatedly triggering the body’s own self-healing processes for soft tissue and bone as well as the endogenous production of lubricin in tendons and at tendon insertions.
