Now offering EPAT/Shockwave Therapy

Performance Rehabilitation & Regenerative Medicine is proud to offer EPAT (Extracorporeal Pulse Activation Therapy)

EPAT, when performed by qualified, trained therapists, is an innovative and highly effective, non-invasive pain management procedure with minimal risks or side effects.  EPAT uses shock waves, which are audible high-energy sound waves.  In the medical world, shock waves have been used since 1980 to disintegrate kidney stones, for instance.

Stimulate Metabolism and Improve Blood Circulation

In modern pain therapy, shock wave energy is applied to the affected body region, where it can exert its curative action.  These shock waves stimulate metabolism and improve blood circulation, often causing damaged tissue to regenerate and fully heal.  Performance’s EPAT system has been proven to provide significant lasting relief from pain associated with:

      • Chronic shoulder pain, often associated with rotator cuff or calcific tendonitis
      • Achilles tendonitis
      • Heel spurs
      • Tibial Stress Syndrome (Shin splints)
      • Tennis elbow
      • Golfer’s elbow

How is shock wave treatment performed?

One of our qualified therapists localizes the pain region by palpation and discusses the findings with you.  A skin gel is then applied to the treatment area to allow the shock waves to be introduced into the body.  After these preparations, shock waves are applied as the therapy head is moved over the pain region in a circular motion.  Each physical therapy session takes between 5 and 10 minutes and in general, 3-5 treatments are necessary at weekly intervals.
