Shockwave Technology

Westhills is equipped with a shockwave, which is a non-invasive treatment for a variety of musculoskeletal conditions horses including but not limited to wounds, osteoarthritis, soft tissue injuries, and caudal heel pain. The shockwave triggers the body’s own repair and healing response without trauma. Shockwave can be used alone or in combination with other treatments.
