What Do Shock Waves Do?
Shock waves cause a biological reponse at the cellular level. When cells are stimulated by shock wave energy, they release a number of proteins that have been clinically proven to improve the quality and speed of healing in various musculoskeletal injuries.
Shock waves have been used in the field of human medicine since the 1980s to treat kidney stones. Ten years later, after clinical studies had demonstrated that this method stimulates the healing process, it was adapted for the treatment of orthopedic disorders such as tendinopathies and pseudarthroses as well.
Impressive therapeutic results have been achieved by using the ProPulse to treat the following conditions in horses:
- Tendinopathies with and without calcification
- Insertion desmopathies (eg. of the suspensory ligament)
- Joint disorders (eg. synovitis or bone spavin)
- Ring bone
- Navicular disease
- Splint bone fracture
- Kissing spines
- Back problems
