Hail Call to MissKiwi (and other DVMs)

What do you know about "Shockwave" or "Pressure wave" therapy ?
I'm betting one for my office for treating humans, but I've heard there is
considerable evidence that it works well on dogs too.

I'm not familiar with it, it might have a different name?? Some things are slow to take hold in veterinary medicine due to cost of equipment or training. Pressurized wound therapy was used in humans for years before it became known well amongst veterinarians.

What is the mechanism of action?

The one that is used for humans and animals is a version of the lithotripsy used on humans for kidney stones.
The one just approved by the FDA for use in the USA.
It has been used in Europe for 10 years and was recently approved for use in Canada.
It was approved for us (USA) on Jan 1.

Do a Google for 'pressure wave and shockwave therapy'............you can add the words veterinary or canine to refine your search.
