We are excited to announce that we will now be offering shock wave therapy to our patients who suffer from chronic pelvic, back, hip, and tailbone pain as well as surgical scarring!
We recently received the CuraMedix Extracorporeal Pulse Activation Technology (EPAT®), at our office in Warren. EPAT, also known as ESWT or shock wave therapy, is the most
advanced and highly effective non-invasive treatment method cleared by the FDA. This proprietary technology is based on a unique set of pressure waves that stimulate the
metabolism, enhance blood circulation and accelerate the healing process. Damaged tissue gradually regenerates and eventually heals. This non-invasive office/clinic based procedure represents a breakthrough treatment option for a broad range of musculoskeletal conditions.
How does it work?
Coupling gel is applied to the specified treatment area to enhance effectiveness. After these
preparations, radial pressure waves and focused shock waves are released via the applicator which is moved over the area in a circular motion.
What are the expected results?
The beneficial effects of Extracorporeal Pulse Activation Technology (EPAT®), also known as ESWT or shock wave therapy, are often experienced after only 3 treatments. Some patients report immediate pain relief after the treatment, although it can take up to 4 weeks for pain
relief to begin. The procedure eliminates pain and restores full mobility, thus improving your quality of life. Over 80% of patients treated report to be pain free and/or have significant pain reduction.
What is the duration of the treatment and how many treatments will I need?
Treatment sessions take approximately 10-20 minutes depending on the disorder to be treated. Generally, 3-5 treatment sessions are necessary at weekly intervals. More chronic conditions may require more sessions.
Why consider non-invasive EPAT®/ESWT?
EPAT®/ESWT has a proven success rate that is equal to or greater than that of traditional treatment methods (including surgery) and without the risks, complications and lengthy recovery time. EPAT®/ ESWT is performed in your physician’s office/clinic, does not require anesthesia, and requires a minimal amount of time. Patients can immediately bear weight (i.e. walk), and return to normal activity within a few days of the procedure.
What if I have a special health condition?
The safety and effectiveness of the EPAT®/ESWT procedure has not been determined on people with the following health conditions. Your doctor will provide you with information
about how these and other conditions might affect the determination to perform the EPAT®/ESWT procedures.
DVT (Deep Vein Thrombosis)
Benefits of EPAT®/ESWT
No risk of infection
Over 80% patient satisfaction
Faster, easier healing
Is it safe?
Yes. This FDA cleared technology was developed in Europe and is currently used around the globe. A wealth of medical experience, state-of-the-art engineering, and optimal quality have been built into each EPAT®/ESWT device; and extensive clinical studies and tests have
confirmed its safety and efficacy. If performed by a qualified caregiver, EPAT®/ESWT has
virtually no risks or side effects.
