Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy ESWT

What is Shock Wave Therapy?

ESWT works by targeting shock waves directly to the area triggering pain. Initially developed to break up kidney stones, research shows that many orthopedic injuries improve with ESWT. This non-invasive procedure does not involve needles or surgery.

What Conditions Does it Treat?

ESWT is used to for many orthopedic conditions, including plantar fasciitis (heel spurs), patellar tendonitis (jumper’s knee), lateral epicondylitis (tennis elbow), medial epicondylitis (golfer’s elbow) and shoulder tendinitis, bone edema associated with knee arthritis, stress and non-union fractures, acute muscle strains/tears and more.

Also Shock Wave Therapy can be used to treat and heal wounds / diabetic ulcers. 

It may be used alone or as an adjunct (combined with cell therapies.

How Does ESWT Treatment Reduce Pain?

The mechanism of action is based on shockwaves interrupting pain pathways of the inflamed nerves at cellular levels. This leads to restoration of healthy nerve function and promotes new blood vessel growth to facilitate natural healing.

Laser Therapy

How Laser Therapy Works

Studies have shown that when tissue cultures are irradiated by lasers, enzymes within cells absorb energy from laser light.  Visible red light and near infrared are absorbed within the mitochondria and the cell membrane.  This produces higher ATP levels and boosts DNA production leading to an increase in cellular health and energy. 

Therefore, when applied as treatment lasers have been shown to reduce pain and inflammation as well as stimulate nerve regeneration, muscle relaxation, and immune system response.  Lasers have no effect on normal tissues because photons of light are only absorbed and utilized by the cells that need them. 

Tissue Rejuvenation

Strong and powerful high-frequency vibration stimulation can penetrate deep fascia, comb muscle nodules, prevent muscle adhesion, and relax tight and stiff muscle tissue, greatly reducing pain and discomfort after exercise, and reawakening muscle vitality. Eliminate fatigue from the inside out, allowing users to enjoy a comfortable day.

Laser Therapy - Pain Management Treatment for Furry Family Members


Veterinary laser therapy is an innovative treatment that can be used in conjunction with or in place of medication to manage pain, inflammation and wound healing.

How does laser therapy affect my pet’s tissue?
Therapeutic lasers use light waves of a specific wavelength to cause the alteration of cellular and tissue physiology. Light absorbed by cellular components stimulates electrons and activates cells to promote growth, proliferation, migration, and repair. The main clinical benefits of laser use in pets include decreased inflammation, decreased pain, and improved wound healing.

Who can benefit from laser therapy?
Laser therapy is used for many veterinary medical conditions, including:
– Chronic arthritis
– Surgical incisions
– Tendon and ligament injuries
– Traumatic injuries

Laser therapy is particularly useful for pets with limited medical treatment options, such as:
– Pets with liver disease who cannot take medications
– Cats, for whom only a few pain-control medications are approved
– Older pets with diminished organ function

How are laser treatments administered?
During a treatment session, the handheld laser wand is slowly moved back and forth over the damaged tissue, producing a warm, pleasant sensation that most pets seem to enjoy and find relaxing. Sessions usually last 15 to 30 minutes, with the number of sessions and frequency of treatments dependent on the injury.

Single Session
or customized packages are available.

Laser Therapy is only available for house pets.
All pets must be up to date on vaccinations and be flee, tick treated
