Looking for a Non-Invasive Treatment for Pain? Introducing EPAT Therapy
If you are currently dealing with pain or have experienced pain in the past you are familiar with the most conventional treatments like RICE (rest, ice, compression, elevate), cortisone, physical therapy, and surgery. It often feels like you are on a never-ending cycle for pain relief. All the while, your out-of-pocket expenses are adding up and you are refraining from doing what you love. There is now a better way.
EPAT (Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy), commonly referred to as Shockwave Technology or Pressure Wave Therapy is a relatively new non-invasive treatment cleared by the FDA to 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. The treatment is safe and controlled. Care Advantage is one of the first to bring this innovative technology to Brevard County using Medical Wave technology.
How is Shockwave Therapy done?
EPAT/Shockwave Therapy accelerates the healing process in the body by stimulating the metabolism and enhancing blood circulation to regenerate damaged tissue. It is a highly effective treatment method that introduces high energy sound waves into painful areas of the body. Shockwave Therapy can also be used to provide trigger point therapy, address sports injuries, scar tissue, stress fractures, enhance bone healing, sexual function improvement, and much more.
How many treatments are needed with Shockwave Therapy?
Since EPAT/Shockwave Therapy is non-invasive, there is no downtime of your daily activities. There is no risk of infection and no scaring from the procedure. The procedure is very cost effective and has a high patient satisfaction rate - over 95% of patients report less pain and improvement after the first treatment. Treatments typically take about 20 minutes in length and often patients report immediate relief. Depending on the site being treated, each body area typically requires three to five treatments for permanent relief of pain or desired effect.
Shockwave Therapy also aids in sexual function health and aesthetics.
EPAT/Shockwave Therapy treatments are all-natural and clinically proven using high-frequency shockwaves to enhance male sexual function, performance, and overall health. It is the only non-invasive procedure that treats the root cause of erectile dysfunction in men by increasing blood flow, releasing growth factors in the tissue forming new blood vessels, and breaking down micro-plaque in the penis. Most patients have a success rate of 75% or greater with this treatment and there is little to no known side effects. Clinical outcomes have shown to be long-lasting with very minimal maintenance needed.
Shockwave Therapy can also be used for aesthetic purposes of smoothing out unwanted cellulite. Unlike many cosmetic treatments, Shockwave Therapy does not destroy any tissue, it instead allows the body’s natural healing process to accelerate the recovery from the multi-fold problems which are the contributing factors of cellulite. It has an impressive 98% success rate, with results lasting six to twelve months before limited maintenance sessions are required. Shock wave therapy is equally effective on scar tissue and stretch marks.
The greatest appeal of EPAT/Shockwave Therapy is its ability to address patient concerns that were until recently, considered to only be correctable with traditional techniques. EPAT/Shockwave Therapy is an innovative, minimally invasive technology that is extremely safe, cost effective and extraordinarily successful solution for pain management, sexual performance in men and women and common aesthetic treatments areas. We are delighted to offer this new, state-of-the-art technology to our patients, and are proud to be one of the first providers of EPAT/Shockwave Therapy in Brevard County.
