Pressure Wave therapy is a highly effective treatment method: high-energy sound waves are introduced into the painful areas of the body. It is one of the most advanced and highly effective noninvasive treatment methods cleared by the FDA. The treatment works by helping to improve the regenerative potential through enhancing blood circulation to regenerate damaged tissue. With this innovative therapy approach, pathological alterations of tendons, ligaments, capsules, muscles and bones can be eliminated systematically.
Pressure Wave Technology, also known as EPAT and Shockwave, can successfully address acute and chronic pain such as:
- Knee Pain
- Heel Pain
- Foot Pain
- Ankle Pain

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Q: What is Pressure Wave Technology?
ANSWER: Pressure wave therapy is a non-invasive, modern and highly effective treatment method: high-energy sound waves are introduced into the painful areas of the body. Pressure wave technology accelerates the healing process in the body by stimulating the metabolism and enhancing blood circulation to regenerate damaged tissue. Strong energy pulses are applied to the affected area. These pulses occur for short periods of time, creating micro-cavitation bubbles that expand and burst. The force created by these bubbles penetrates tissue and stimulates cells in the body that are responsible for bone and connective tissue healing.
Q: What type of conditions can be treated with Pressure Wave Technology?
ANSWER: Pressure Wave treatment can 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, Hand Pain, stubborn knots, chronic pain in neck, mid-back and low back..
Q: How is the treatment performed?
ANSWER: Pressure Wave treatment is noninvasive. Gel is applied to the treatment area and pressure waves are then released through the applicator as it is moved over the treatment area.
Q: How many treatments are generally needed?
ANSWER: The number of sessions needed depends on the condition that is being treated, but a minimum of 3 sessions are recommended one week apart. Each treatment session takes about 10 minutes and can vary depending on the condition being treated.
Q: What type of results are expected?
ANSWER: Beneficial effects are often experienced after only one or two treatments and there is no downtime. Many patients report immediate pain relief after treatment. The technology has a 91% success rate as per clinical studies. Patients treated report being pain free or have a significant reduction in pain. The nonsurgical therapy eliminates pain and restores mobility, thus improving quality of life.
Q: What are the possible side effects?
ANSWER: Treatment with Pressure Wave technology has virtually no side effects. In some cases, patients may experience minor discomfort for a few days. Patients can return to work after treatments and there is no downtime.
Q: Who is a candidate for Pressure Wave?
ANSWER: Most people are good candidates for Pressure Wave treatment however patients who are pregnant, have a pacemaker or current cancer are not suitable for treatment with Pressure Wave Technology. We will provide you with information about conditions you may have that would affect your ability to undergo treatment.
