Shockwave Therapy

  • EPAT Shockwaves stimulate the osteoblastic cells that are responsible for bone growth and repair. Shockwave therapy also stimulate fibroblasts, which are responsible for the repair of connective tissue, such as tendons. By stimulating fibroblasts with Shockwave therapy (i.e., cells that are responsible for repairing connective tissue), the body forgoes it’s own natural healing process.

  • First, a gel is applied to the injured or painful area. Then a handheld EPAT device is used to emit a series of pulses to the area. The strength of the pulses is gradually increased (as tolerated by the patient) until a therapeutic level is reached.

  • Each treatment takes 10 to 15 minutes, depending upon the area being treated, and many people experience immediate pain relief.

  • The procedure applies acoustic pressure waves–basically shock waves—to enhance blood circulation and speed up the healing process.

    The treatment not only breaks up the fibrous tissue that is restricting the movement but also stimulates blood flow which facilitates pain relief and healing.
