EPAT is a highly effective treatment method; high-energy sound waves are introduced into the painful areas of the body. It is one of the most advanced and highly effective noninvasive treatment methods cleared by the FDA. The treatment works by helping to improve the regenerative potential, enhancing blood circulation to regenerate damaged tissue.
EPAT also known as Shockwave and Pressure Wave Therapy can successfully address acute and chronic pain such as: knee pain, heel pain, foot pain, ankle pain, hamstring pain, back pain, neck pain, shoulder pain, elbow pain, wrist pain and hand pain. It is also used to address sports injuries and many painful conditions.
EPAT treatments do not leave scars, requires no anesthesia, and has no down time. Immediately following the procedure most people are able to get on with the rest of their day. People suffering from tendinopathies, which exhibit a reduction of mobility due to pain caused by movement, can benefit from shockwave therapy. Shockwave therapy is becoming a common option for pain treatment due to it’s non-invasive, simpler, faster and safer qualities.
Shockwave therapy is great for pain management as it reduces inflammation. Can help treat painful conditions like frozen shoulder, tennis elbow, carpal tunnel syndrome, and plantar fasciitis. The treatment uses acoustic pressure waves–basically shock waves—to enhance blood circulation and speed up the healing process.
Beneficial effects are often experienced after only 1 or 2 treatments and there is no downtime. The non-surgical therapy for pain eliminates pain and restores mobility, thus quickly improving patients’ quality of life.
