Shock Wave Therapy GSD

Shock Wave Therapy

What is shockwave therapy?

A high-energy sound wave technology offering a noninvasive treatment option for dogs experiencing lameness and pain.

Shockwaves result in higher energy outputs and deeper penetration than ultrasound or lasers. It’s been shown to reduce healing time, improve mobility, and relieve pain.
