Shockwave Therapy

George County Veterinary Clinic is now able to offer Shock Wave Therapy as a treatment for both large and small animals.

Shock Wave Therapy has become increasingly popular as a form of treatment and at George County Veterinary Clinic we are proud to be one of the first and only vets in South Mississippi to offer this service to our clients.

It can be used to treat a variety of conditions for large animals including:

*  Soft tissue injuries such as flexor tendon strains, suspensory ligament sprains, annular ligament syndrome/inflammation.

   

*  Chronic orthopaedic conditions such as pain associated with arthritis e.g. spavin, caudal foot pain or navicular syndrome.

   

*  Persistent pain associated with active ‘splint’ formation and ‘sore shins’.

   

*  Musculoskeletal disorders of the back- vertebral arthrosis, dorsal spinous process impingement or ‘kissing spines’, sacroiliac strains.


Shock wave treatment is beneficial for the following applications in canines:

*  Osteoarthritis of the shoulder, hip, back, elbow, stifle, carpus, and/or tarsus

*  Hip dysplasia

       

*  Chronic back pain including spondylosisdeformans, chronic intravertebral disk disease, lumbosacral instability

*  Non-union or delayed-healing fractures

*  Osteochondrosis lesions of the shoulders, hocks, and/or stifles

*  Sesamoiditis
