Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy  (ESWT) Applications for Companion Animals


Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy (ESWT) is used for the treatment of musculoskeletal soft tissue pain as well as superficial and soft tissue injuries and disorders. It is helpful for orthopedic cases such as hip and ellbow dysplasia, fractures and tendon injuries.
