Top Veterinary care given at all times. Professional evaluation and attention to detail are always given at every visit. The mobile vet van is clean and well equipped. Dr. Ginny’s care of my senior agility dog (Koda) has been nothing short of phenomenal. He is healthy and able to fully enjoy life in his senior years despite having a potential life altering infection to his lower spine. He is on a maintenance program prescribed by Dr. Ginny that keeps him fit, healthy and strong. At age 10 1/2 he is still competing in agility and goes hiking with us in the Sierra.
Shockwave uses sound waves that oscillate creating a direct mechanical force that results in the maximal beneficial pulse energy producing tensile force. The second phase creates air bubbles that generate a second wave of shockwaves. The resulting energy also stimulates a biologic response, an indirect effect. This unit is a radial shockwave unit that does not require anesthesia or sedation for treatment. This differs from focused shockwave as focused can penetrate 80mm with a small field of treatment and radial can penetrate 40mm and has a larger field of treatment. It can help with blood flow, repair of tissue, neurologic control, skeletal stem cell recruitement and inhibits inflammation. This is used for treatment of: nonunion fractures, avascular necrosis, stress fractures and ligament/tendon injuries among other uses.
