Looking for a non-invasive treatment to help reduce your pet’s pain and improve his or her mobility? Shockwave therapy might be something to consider!

Shockwave therapy has been used successfully in human medicine for many years. Now, those same benefits of lasting pain relief and restoration of healthy movement without the need for surgery or medications are available to our four-legged friends as well! Makawao Veterinary Clinic is pleased to offer shockwave technology to help heal injured tissue, increase mobility, and relieve pain in pets.

What is shockwave therapy?

Despite its name, shockwave therapy does not involve the use of any type of electric shock. Instead, it uses high-energy sound waves to penetrate the surface of the skin and naturally promote the regeneration of soft tissue, tendons, and bones. Shockwave therapy is non-invasive and totally painless, yet it can produce remarkable results in just a few sessions.

Benefits of Shockwave Therapy

  • Reduced inflammation and swelling
  • Increased blood flow
  • Improved wound healing
  • Reduced need for pharmaceuticals
  • Minimal to no side effects
  • Non-invasive
  • Short treatment times 
  • Quick results

What can shockwave therapy be used to treat?

At Makawao Veterinary Clinic, we routinely use shock wave therapy to treat:

  • Osteoarthritis
  • Tendon and ligament injuries
  • Hip and elbow dysplasia
  • Back pain
  • Wounds
  • Shoulder lameness
  • Bone fractures

How do shockwave therapy sessions work and how many will my pet need?

Shockwave therapy treatments are quick and easy, typically lasting around ten minutes. The number of sessions your pet will require to achieve optimal benefits will depend on several factors, such as the condition being addressed, its severity, and other considerations. Our experienced team will evaluate your pet’s unique situation and provide you with a customized treatment recommendation.
