Shockwave for Dogs

According to Clinician’s Brief:
  • In a study of dogs with distal radial fracture non-unions (a break near the bottom of the front limb, just above the wrist joint), all dogs that received Shockwave therapy showed complete bone healing after 12 weeks, while no dogs in the control group achieved complete bony union.
  • In a study of dogs with lameness resulting from soft tissue shoulder conditions, 88 percent showed improvement after shockwave therapy, with no surgical intervention.
  • Shockwave therapy was also shown to significantly reduce distal ligament thickening in dogs with inflammation of knee joints following surgery for a CCL rupture.
  • Shockwave therapy has proved beneficial in promoting the development of new blood vessels at the bone-tendon interface of the Achilles tendon in dogs and has been shown to modulate osteoarthritis in animals by decreasing production of nitric oxide in joints and inhibiting cell death in healthy cartilage. Shockwave therapy can also be beneficial in managing the pain of arthritis.
  • Studies have demonstrated positive results in joint range of motion and peak vertical force in dogs with knee, hip and elbow arthritis.

Treatment Specifics and Average Timeframes

Treatment time depends on the strength of the shockwaves and the number of locations being treated.

With KEPE a common dose is 1000-1200 pulses per site, which can be accomplished in under 5 minutes.

Animals normally begin to experience pain relief from shockwave treatment after the 2nd or 3rd treatment. Treatment is recommended every 5-7 days for a total of 5-10 treatments (depending on severity and chronicity of the condition being treated).

Severe arthritic patients may required treatment every 6 to 12 months.

Shockwave therapy should be used in conjunction with rehabilitation to return patients to full activity.
