Extracorporeal shockwave therapy is widely used for managing pain and optimizing healing in soft tissue injuries. It’s most common application is following tendinous or ligamentous injury and for management of navicular syndrome. It can also be helpful in treating back and neck conditions, and select cases of bony injury as well. Our practice has a portable unit that can be used on-farm and the procedure can be performed under light standing sedation. The treatment is typically repeated every 1 to 2 weeks for at least 3 treatments following an injury, but is often repeated in more chronic conditions.
