Doylestown EPAT Shockwave Therapy
Top-Tier Chiropractic Care for Effective Chronic Pain Treatment
At Advanced Spine and Sports Medicine, our chiropractic and physical therapy practitioners provide a wide variety of effective pain management services to our patients that don’t rely on drugs or surgery for results. Our experienced providers use modern, revolutionary techniques to help you cope with chronic pain with therapies that provide lasting results. One such treatment is extracorporeal pulse activation technology (EPAT®) shockwave therapy. While the name may sound a bit intimidating, the technology behind this FDA-approved treatment option is gentle and non-invasive. It leaves no scars, doesn’t require any anesthesia, and there’s no associated downtime.
How Shockwave Therapy Works
Shockwave therapy is a type of regenerative medicine that uses acoustic pressure waves, or shockwaves, to promote blood flow and speed up the body’s natural healing process. The in-office treatment takes about 10 to 15 minutes and about 4 to 5 treatments spaced 3 to 10 days apart for optimal results. First, a gel is applied to the treatment area, and then a handheld device is used to emit gradually increased pulses to the affected area until a therapeutic level is reached. Treatment typically is not uncomfortable, but some patients may have mild discomfort where pain already exists. Our providers can adjust the shockwave levels to optimize the process for you to make it as comfortable as possible.
