Extracorporeal Pulse Activation Treatment (EPAT) is an FDA approved, non-invasive treatment based on a proprietary set of unique pressure waves that stimulate the metabolism, enhance blood circulation and accelerate the healing process.
If you're dealing with chronic pain, injury, or other musculoskeletal issues, focused shockwave therapy may be the solution you've been searching for. Located in Hinsdale, Illinois, our shockwave therapy services are designed to help you achieve fast and lasting pain relief, improved mobility, and accelerated healing.
Focused shockwave therapy uses high-intensity sound waves to stimulate the body's natural healing processes. The sound waves are delivered to the affected area using a handheld device that is placed directly on the skin. The waves penetrate deep into the tissues, promoting increased circulation and stimulating the production of new tissue.
This therapy is particularly effective for treating a wide range of musculoskeletal conditions, including:
- Plantar fasciitis
- Tennis elbow
- Rotator cuff injuries
- Shin splints
- Hip bursitis
- Trigger points
In many cases, focused shockwave therapy can provide significant relief from pain and other symptoms after just one or two treatments. However, the number of treatments required will depend on the severity of your condition and your individual health needs.
At our Hinsdale clinic, we use the latest technology and techniques to provide safe and effective shockwave therapy. Our experienced therapists are dedicated to helping you achieve your health and wellness goals, and we'll work with you to develop a personalized treatment plan that meets your unique needs.
In addition to shockwave therapy, we offer a wide range of other therapies that can help accelerate healing and promote overall wellness. These therapies include:
- Tecar therapy: This therapy uses high-frequency currents to generate heat in the body's tissues, promoting increased circulation and accelerating healing.
- Cold laser therapy: This non-invasive therapy uses low-level laser light to reduce inflammation, relieve pain, and promote healing.
- EMTT: This therapy uses electromagnetic impulses to stimulate muscle contractions, reduce inflammation, and helps to relieve pain and promote healing.
