Equine Shock Wave Therapy Machine for Horses and Small Animals
What is shockwave therapy?
Extracorporeal shockwaves are high pressure sound waves used for therapeutic purposes. Shockwave therapy was originally developed to treat kidney stones in humans. The veterinary community has taken this technology and applied shockwave to orthopedic conditions.
In equine field services ,There has been some research directed at explaining the exact mechanism of shockwave. Some studies have shown it to be pain relieving; others have shown that there are some changes at a microscopic level such as neovascularization and changes in cytokines. Although the exact mechanism has not been proven, there is a volume of anecdotal evidence that suggests that it is an alternative therapy that can be considered for a variety of musculoskeletal problems.as it targets the erectile mechanism so that men are more likely to have erections on
What conditions respond to shock wave therapy?
Indications for ESWT in small animals
Disorganized or delayed healing of fractures
Malformation of the elbow and hip (dysplasias)
Chronic back pain
Indications for ESWT in large animals
Inflammation of sesamoid bones

Before any treatment, the horse should first have a full lameness exam/ work up. This can be accomplished by scheduling a farm call by equine field services. A veterinarian would come to the farm and do a thorough physical exam and observe the horse move. This is best accomplished in an area that is flat with consistent footing. Next, nerve blocks or intra-articular blocks would most likely be done to help localize the area that is causing the unsoundness. Finally, radiology, ultrasound, or a bone scan can be used to arrive at a diagnosis. Equine field services has a digital radiology unit and a portable ultrasound available for onsite imaging. However, the horse would have to be brought to the Veterinary Teaching Hospital for a bone scan.
What is the procedure?
If shockwave therapy is pursued, a schedule of treatment would be planned using a unit that is portable and can be brought to the farm.
The shockwave delivers a mildly uncomfortable stimulus, so the horse is usually sedated.
The site of the injury is cleaned and contact gel is applied.
A probe that treats at the appropriate depth is chosen, and then 800 to 2000 shocks are applied.
Treatment is generally repeated at two to three week intervals for three to five sessions.
The horse should be rested for the first week after treatment, then gradually returned to work depending on the underlying injury. If unsoundness persists or the injury requires longer recovery time, the horse would be rested the entire time between treatments.
Some of the Many Benefits of Shockwave Therapy for Horses
Rapid Reduction in Pain and Decreased Healing Times
Works On Chronic and Acute Conditions
None Of The Side Effects Of Steroid Treatments - nor the dangers of further injury
A Great Alternative to Drugs and Their Side Effects
A Successful Alternative To Surgery as a treatment for horse injuries
Requires No Sedation, Medication or Anesthesia - one of the few horse injury treatments that require no drugs of any kind
A Quick Out-Patient Treatment For Horse Injuries
Available On-Site With Mobile Shock Wave Units
Virtually No Side Effects - which can't be said for most treatments
A Complete Course Of Treatment In A Few Sessions (the average treatment for horse injuries is completed in 3-5 sessions)
A Cost Saving Treatment For Horse Injuries
Most treatment protocols to promote healing of acute injuries involve 1000-2500 impulses, delivered at the target area once every 2-3 three weeks for 3 treatments. The type and location of the injury determines the energy required, the depth of focus, and the number of pulses the tissue requires. The horses are usually restricted to stable rest and controlled exercise between treatments. The horses are then re-evaluated. Post treatment exercise levels are guided by the nature of the original injury and the improvement seen with treatment.
Shockwave have been successfully used to treat many soft issue, muscle injury, tendon injury ect on horses and other animals. Equine shockwave therapy machine for horses
