Extracorporal Shockwave Therapy (ESWT) helps pets suffering from arthritis and other painful conditions affecting bones, tendons and muscles. It uses high energy sound waves to stimulate the body's own healing process. The waves travel from the surface of the body into the damaged tissues where they promote the breakdown of scar tissue, decrease pain, and stimulate the formation of new blood vessels, connective tissue and bone.
Laser therapy is the directing of red and near infrared light over tissue in hopes of improving healing, reducing pain, and reducing bacterial counts. Commonly used to treat wounds, arthritis, pain, trigger points, tendonitis, swelling, lick granulomas, muscle injuries.
Hydrotherapy or underwater treadmill therapy provides an unique advantage to the rehabilitation program. The resistance of the water increases muscular work as they walk on the treadmill, and can improve gait mechanics by the nature of the water resistance.
