Shockwave Technology also known as EPAT and Pressure Wave 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 provide trigger point therapy, address sports injuries, scar tissue, stress fractures, enhance bone healing, sexual function and much more.
Shockwave therapy 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.
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.
