Key takeaways on extracorporeal shockwave therapy


Wrapping up the discussion on extracorporeal shockwave therapy

Sponsored my Zomedica / PulseVet

Adam Christman, DVM, MBA: Well, this has been fantastic. Dr. Alvarez. Thank you so much. Thank you, Capone, for being such a good boy making Denver. We're proud here. So, you know, what were some key takeaways that we learned about shockwave therapy?

Leilani Alvarez, DVM, DACVSMR, CVA, CCRT: Yeah, one I would say is extremely well tolerated. We saw that with Capone. Yeah, you don't need sedation, wide range of applications, particularly for conditions that are chronic, repetitive injuries that are not going to respond well to surgery. So that would be things like shoulder tendinopathies, any kind of tendinopathy, non-healing bone fracture, O.A. Oh, yeah, O.A. Lumbar sacral disease. Yes. Yeah. Lots of great indications for it.

Adam Christman, DVM, MBA: Are there any great resources that you would recommend for them to learn more about it?

Leilani Alvarez, DVM, DACVSMR, CVA, CCRT: I wrote a chapter not to like, you know, self-promote, but Veterinary Clinics of North America had a really nice entire book dedicated to rehabilitation, and it's a nice summary chapter on extracorporeal shockwave therapy. So Veterinary Clinics of North America, I believe it was 2022 that it came out.

Adam Christman, DVM, MBA: Excellent. Yeah. And what about if they want to learn more about PulseVet?

Leilani Alvarez, DVM, DACVSMR, CVA, CCRT: They can go to their website, and I believe a lot of the studies that we mentioned today are in there as well, and it will tell you everything you need to know about PulseVet.

Adam Christman, DVM, MBA: Excellent. Well, thank you so much again for being on the show.

Leilani Alvarez, DVM, DACVSMR, CVA, CCRT: My pleasure. Thank you. And thank you for sharing, Capone.

Adam Christman, DVM, MBA: Of course. Yes. He loves you.

Leilani Alvarez, DVM, DACVSMR, CVA, CCRT: Thank you so much for tuning in. A big thank you and a shout out to Zometica and PulseVet for supporting this wonderful education. And we'll see you next time right here at DVM 360 and Flex. Take care, everybody.
