ESWT Shockwave Therapy
Extracorporeal shock wave therapy (ESWT) has become an emerging new technology for treating musculoskeletal problems, soft-tissue injuries and bone injuries in horses. ESWT is non-invasive, used to stimulate healing to return horses to a level of fully sound, useful activity without recurrence of disease.
It speeds up the healing of injuries as well as having a pain-relieving effect.
ESWT is now well accepted as a useful non-invasive treatment for angular limb deformity in young growing foals.
Typically a horse will need a course of three treatments at 10-14 day intervals.
