The canine conditions shown to improve with ESWT include osteoarthritis, hip and elbow dysplasia, chronic back pain, osteochondrosis lesions, sesamoiditis
(degeneration of small bones in the foot that causes persistent lameness, especially in racing Greyhounds and Rottweilers), tendon injuries, lick granulomas, cruciate ligament injuries, nonunion or delayed-healing bone fractures, and painful scar tissue.
An increased tendency for bone reactions such as sesamoiditis
and osteitis was also observed in racing animals and desmitis in western sports horse, as previously reported (MURRAY et al.

In arriving at a primary Diagnosis (Dx), due consideration should be given to differential diagnoses (Ddx), which must of course include metatarsal stress fractures (Reeder et al, 1996), as well as Metatarsophalangeal Joint (MTPJ) synovitis, osteochondrosis of the (usually but not exclusively 2nd) metatarsal heads (Freiberg infraction/disease), gout, sesamoiditis
and more rarely encountered pathologies such as plantar verrucous carcinoma (Schell et al, 2001) and epidermal inclusion cysts (Kato and Ueno, 1992).

Hallux sesamoids can be involved with fractures, AVN, and sesamoiditis
secondary to inflammatory arthropathies or osteomyelitis.
