Let us here at West End Animal Clinic help your pet experience significant pain relief. We are the ONLY veterinary office within 300 miles that offers this remarkable treatment to clinic patients. This treatment is economical, non-invasive, and can help your pet feel better than they have in years.
PulseVet’s technology uses high-energy sound waves to penetrate deep into soft tissues to stimulate cells and release healing growth factors in the body that reduce swelling and inflammation, increase blood flow, help bones to form and heal, and enhance wound healing.
ProPulse is non-invasive and can be an affordable alternative to surgery or long-term use of pharmaceuticals. Average treatment is fast and easy, typically lasting only 5-10 minutes. Most pets don’t even need sedation for the treatment.
Murphy is an 8-year-old, 240-pound English Mastiff who has had pain in his hips for a long time. He had trouble getting around and sometimes even had to be helped off the floor. After just 2 ProPulse treatments, Murphy is back to chasing squirrels in his backyard! Check out his video below.
What is a shock wave?
Shock wave therapy is a noninvasive, high-energy, sound wave treatment commonly used in human and veterinary medicine. It helps the body in relieving pain, speeding healing, and improving the quality of healing. Shock wave is a much higher energy treatment and can penetrate deeper areas than many other types of modalities.
“Shock wave” is a physics term to describe a rapid increase in pressure, such as the energy from an explosion or thunder resulting from lightning. “Shock wave” does not refer to electrical shock. It is actually a high-energy SOUND wave treatment.
How does shock wave work?
Shock wave provides a high-energy, focused sound wave. The sound wave acts as a mechanical force at the cellular level, causing various biological reactions, including the release of proteins and other substances that have a profound effect in increasing blood supply to the area and stimulating the release of numerous substances involved in the normal healing process.
Shock wave has also been demonstrated to recruit stem cells and positively regulate inflammatory proteins associated with osteoarthritis. In fact, numerous studies show these effects to be at least as potent as those of Platelet-Derived Growth Hormone.
What is shock wave used for?
Shock wave has been proven effective and is considered the gold standard of treatment for a variety of musculoskeletal and orthopedic conditions, including:
- Tendon, ligament, and muscle injuries
- Osteoarthritis/Degenerative Joint Disease
- Foot/Heel pain
- Bone healing/fractures (splints; stress fractures; buck shins)
- Back and neck pain (kissing spines/lumbosacral pain/arthritis)
- Wound healing
