What is the VersaTron4Paws high-energy sound wave technology?
The Versatron is used to speed your pet’s healing process. Backed by more than a decade of clinical research, sound waves can be used to reduce lameness, improve mobility and relieve pain in dogs with:
- Tendon/ligament injuries
- Bone fractures
- Back pain
- Shoulder instability
- Lick granulomas
The VersaTron4Paws technology uses high-energy sound waves – called pulse waves – to stimulate and speed the body’s own healing process. These sound waves release higher energy and result in deeper penetration than ultrasound or laser. The waves travel through soft tissue to the area and begin healing.
How does it work?
The high-energy sound waves stimulate cells and release the pet’s own natural healing abilities by increasing blood flow, helping bones to form and heal, and reducing inflammation and swelling. This enhances wound healing and speeds your family friend’s recovery time.
What can be treated with the VersaTron4Paws technology?
Shock wave therapy is noninvasive so it can be used in these conditions as an alternative to surgery, instead of increased non-steroidal pharmaceuticals, or as part of a rehabilitation plan.
What can I expect from an average treatment?
An average treatment is relatively fast and easy. To ensure your pet’s optimal comfort we will sedate them and shave/clip the area to ensure optimal penetration of the sound waves. Dr Fradkin will select the number of pulses for the area, apply the sound wave applicator, and deliver the pulses over a 3-4 minute time interval. This treatment will help get your beloved pet on the road to a pain-free life much quicker.
