Award-winning 1 Division rodeo barrel racer, Darcy LaPier used Cytowave on her 14-year-old gelding Dash to help him recover from an injury. “I’m very particular with what I use on my horses,” said LaPier. “Cytowave’s statements are true. It heals in rapid time. I was so impressed with what Cytowave did for Dash.” LaPier’s veterinarian, Dr. Tom Hutchins, recommended Cytowave to help Dash recover from a bone bruise and deep digital tendon fraying.
Dr. Tom Hutchins of Silverado Equine Performance, LLC in Weatherford, Texas is certified as a Diplomate by the American Board of Veterinary Practitioners (ABVP) specializing in Equine Practice. His practice provides care for each horse with all necessary diagnostic tools available for an equine athlete.
“Dash had undergone PRP and shockwave therapy but the only thing that worked was Cytowave,” Dr. Tom Hutchins said. “Dash is traveling very well and I’m very pleased thus far.” Dr. Hutchins understands how unique the new Cytowave technology is and how it differs from traditional modalities that have been used to treat injured horses. “I have recommended Cytowave to over a dozen clients within the last five months and have seen excellent results in all of them,” said Dr. Hutchins. “The device is great for healing injuries that are difficult to get to. It is a noninvasive, affordable instrument that provides unique therapy. With guidance from a veterinarian, an owner can use Cytowave themselves in the comfort of their own stable.”
“Cytowave was the only thing that worked. It was remarkable because he was walking in two weeks,” LaPier said. “Dash is exercising just like my other horses. I’m not holding him back, and he has more confidence when we ride.”
Dash received six weeks of Cytowave treatments and in his first return to competition, Dash finished 8th out of 135 competitors! Severe tendon and ligament lesions can require twelve or more months of total recovery time. Cytowave Equine Therapy dramatically reduces recovery time so a horse is back to its peak performance as quickly as possible. Cytowave can typically reduce recovery time for moderate to severe tendon and ligament injuries by five or more months and has been used to heal soft tissue injuries, soreness and inflammation, and hock trauma. Preventative use of Cytowave can also help reduce the risk of future injury and help alleviate discomfort for your horse, especially back pain.
