Common Procedure


Shock Wave Therapy has become increasingly popular as a form of treatment and at Oakhill we are proud to be one of the first vets in the North West to offer this service to our clients.

The procedure can be done either on your yard or in our equine clinic, to treat a variety of conditions including:

  • Soft tissue injuries such as flexor tendon strains, suspensory ligament sprains, annular ligament syndrome/inflammation.
  • Chronic orthopaedic conditions such as pain associated with arthritis e.g. spavin, caudal foot pain or navicular syndrome.
  • Persistent pain associated with active ‘splint’ formation and ‘sore shins’.
  • Musculoskeletal disorders of the back- vertebral arthrosis, dorsal spinous process impingement or ‘kissing spines’, sacroiliac strains.
