What is Radial Shockwave Therapy?

Radial Shock Wave Therapy, an FDA-cleared technology, has been scientifically shown to accelerate the healing process for soft tissue tendinitis and tendinopathies. It excels in treating conditions such as Plantar Fasciitis, Achilles Tendinitis, Tennis, and Golfer’s Elbow, and effectively addresses many aches, pains, and injuries throughout the body. 

Radial Shockwave Therapy is an advanced and non-invasive treatment method that effectively enhances blood circulation and accelerates the healing process. By gradually regenerating damaged tissue, this therapy offers remarkable results. 

Accustic soundwaves are created using high-pressure air, hitting a metal projectile within the handle turning kinetic energy into acoustic soundwaves. These acoustic waves have a profound biological impact, stimulating faster and long-term healing and tissue regeneration. RSW, encompassing a wide array of indications, is an optimal choice for those seeking efficient and effective treatment options.

Extracorporeal Pulse Activation Technology (EPAT®) is a revolutionary proprietary technology that utilizes a distinctive set of pressure waves. These waves not only stimulate the metabolism and enhance blood circulation but also expedite the healing process. Over time, damaged tissue gradually regenerates and ultimately heals. This non-invasive procedure offers a groundbreaking treatment option for various musculoskeletal conditions

What Kinds of Muscle Pain is EPAT Shock Wave Therapy appropriate for?

Generally, acute or chronic musculoskeletal pain and/or pain that significantly impairs mobility or quality of life including:

  • Foot and ankle pain
  • Lower extremity pain
  • Upper extremity pain
  • Back and chest pain
  • Shoulder pain
  • Neck pain
  • Myofascial trigger points
  • Adhesions/Scar-tissue

What are the Possible Side Effects/Complications?

The non-invasive Radial Shockwave treatment carries minimal risks and side effects. Occasionally, patients may experience mild discomfort that can persist for a few days. This treatment can be likened to a regular workout, where it is common to have residual pain after intense exercise, which typically diminishes within a day or two.

Imagine just a few days of experiencing relatively minor aches in exchange for releasing years of life-altering pain. 

What Results can I expect for Muscle Pain after experiencing Radial Shock Wave?

Ultrasound gel is applied to the key areas of pain, injury, and restriction, whether on muscles, tendons, ligaments, Trigger Points, or Adhesions, which helps propagate the acoustic sound waves, vastly increasing the healing effect of the Radial Shockwave. 

After these preparations, EPAT®pressure waves are released via an applicator, which, although may seem similar to a massage gun, there is no comparison to the effectiveness of the Radial Shockwave treatment. The applicator is moved over the area where the pain or injury is located for about a 5 to 10-minute session, depending on the injury or pain pattern. You may experience some light to moderate discomfort as we find vital areas that need to be effectively treated but never pain. 

With each progressive session of RSW therapy, you’ll gradually experience a reduction in pain and discomfort until your soft-tissue pain and injury are adequately healed, allowing you to regain your optimal state of well-being.

How is Radial Shock Wave performed?

Coupling gel is applied to the area of chronic muscle pain to enhance effectiveness. After these preparations, EPAT®pressure waves are released via an applicator that is suggestive of “at home” massage tools you might have experience with. The applicator is moved over the leg, neck, shoulder or foot area, where the chronic pain is being experienced, in a circular motion for 1-3 minutes. The treated individual may feel some tingling sensations in the area during the treatment.

Any discomfort is typically associated with expected apprehension when a client is experiencing EPAT for the first time–just like with any new experience–rather than discomfort of the treatment itself. But after realizing the benefits of this amazing technology, the tingling sensation becomes something the client welcomes because it indicates that healing and pain relief are soon to follow.

The Benefits of EPAT® are Many!

  • Non-invasive
  • No anesthesia
  • No risk of infection
  • No scarring
  • No downtime
  • Over 80% patient satisfaction
  • Faster, easier healing
