How Does the PiezoWave Vet 2 Shockwave Therapy Device Work?

The PiezoWave Vet 2 is a shockwave therapy device that was designed by Richard Wolf Medical and Musculoskeletal Therapies for Animals to help treat a number of musculoskeletal conditions. Some of the conditions it can treat include:

  • Tendonitis
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Sesamoiditis
  • Chronic back pain
  • Malformation of the elbow and hips
  • Disorganized or delayed healing of fractures
  • Calcification
  • Fissures
  • Degenerative joint disease

The device delivers high-energy extracorporeal shockwave therapy, also called ESWT, to the animal in need. It can be used on equines and small animals, such as cats and dogs. One benefit of this treatment is that it requires little or no sedation. 

What Are the Benefits of ESWT?

ESWT has a number of benefits. Some include:

  • Less patient discomfort
  • Lower cost
  • Biofeedback, which allows an area to be "flared" to see where the therapy would provide the most benefit
  • Less noise, which keeps clinics quieter and may reduce anxiety in our patients
  • Little or no need for sedation
  • Precise localization of injured or irregular tissues

The great thing about this treatment is the high level of control that the veterinarian has. Our rehab veterinarian can be extremely specific with the depth of penetration so that your pets receive the most benefit from each treatment session.
