CVRC is excited to announce that we now offer shockwave therapy for your pets!

How it Works

A shock wave is a high energy, focused sound wave that stimulates cells and releases healing growth factors in the body for the following benefits:

  • Reduce inflammation and swelling
  • Increase blood flow
  • Help bones form and heal, and enhance wound healing

These sound waves release higher energy and result in deeper penetration by traveling through soft tissue at different depths to a specific treatment area and begin healing.

As a result, we need to be more aware than ever of the serious diseases they carry and the ways to prevent them.  Click here to read full article.
