1-22Hz frequency adjustable shockwave machine for horse treat
Shock wave are high-pressure ,low frequency sound waves ,generated by a device outside the body and applied to the affected tissue in a site-specific manner . When the shockwaves meet tissue interfaces of different densities , the energy contained in the shockwaves is released and interacts with the tissue . The shockwaves appear to relieve pain and accelerate healing within the injured tissue . Primarily the sound waves provide a mechanism to stimulast the healing process by interacting with the affected structures . In addition ,it blocks pain conduction in the nerves for a period of time.
This type of therapy was originally used to treat human beings with kidney stones, it allowed for the breaking up of the stones without the need for invasive surgery. More recently, shockwaves have been used to treat a range of orthopedic conditions in both human beings and animals. Besides its use for kidney stones in people, the other common applications which are similar to its use in equine medicine involve treatments for "tennis elbow", heel spurs, tendon issues involving the shoulder and selected non-union fractures. There are multiple equine orthopedic conditions that are similar to these human conditions and involve joint disease, soft tissue injuries and injuries to the interface of ligaments with bone.
Shockwave therapy has been successfully used to treat many soft tissue and bony problems, both acute and chronic. These include, but are not limited to:
• Suspensory ligament tears and strains
• Suspensory injuries with avulsion fractures
• Tendon tears and strains
• Collateral ligament injuries
• Impar ligament injuries
• Deep digital flexor tendon injuries
• Navicular syndrome
• Joint inflammation and pain
• Back pain
• Neck pain
• Muscle tears and strains
• Repair ligament injuries
• Infected or large wounds
Horses are usually treated under standing sedation.
The machine has a probe which is placed on the area to be treated and gel is applied to the skin to achieve good acoustic contact (air being a good insulator for sound, funnily enough) The sound energy is delivered in packets called “shocks” and the amount of energy in each shock can be determined by the user. The number of shocks used and the energy level for each shock will depend on the condition being treated and location on the horse.
A typical treatment will be between 500 and 1500 shocks and one to three treatments will normally be given with 1 -2 week intervals between treatments.
