Shockwave Therapy (ESWT or EPAT)

Shockwave therapies are being proven to treat a broad variety of orthopedic and medical conditions.  The treatment is safe, simple, and non-invasive; it aims to heal and repair injured or dysfunctional tissue.  Using a handheld specially designed transmitter, mechanical healing energy can be delivered directly to the body.  This leads to increased blood circulation and enhanced metabolic activity in the treated tissue, resulting in a healing response.  On a microscopic level, there is nitric oxide release, release of growth hormones, as well as stimulation of stem cells and neurons. 

Orthopedics and Medical Conditions that can be treated include: 

Rotator Cuff Tendonitis Tennis Elbow Biceps Tendonitis 
Hip Tendonitis Hamstring Tendon Injury Adductor Tendonitis 
Jumper’s Knee Achilles Tendonitis Plantar Fasciitis 
Osgood-Schlatter Syndrome Shin Splints Bone Bruises 
Myofascial Pain/Trigger Points Muscle Injury Skin wrinkles or sagging 
Cellulite Scar Tissue Erectile Dysfunction 

Each condition utilizes a different setting, transmitter, and treatment protocol to achieve healing and pain relief.  Our staff is training on a broad spectrum of treatments from augmenting regenerative medicine to stand alone treatments for orthopedic injuries, cosmetic benefits, and medical treatments.
