Jennifer Vitucci, DVM, CCRT: So [shock wave therapy] is great for those, for example, those partial cruciate tears that come in; they're not surgical candidates. Normally, we can only offer them medicine and rest or rehab. This is something that actually can improve their healing and improve their pain and quality of life. Those geriatrics that have that chronic [osteoarthritis], they've been on nonsteroidals, and they're starting not to be able to tolerate them so much anymore, this is a great option for them as well.
