Shockwave Therapy is a non – invasive, outpatient alternative to surgery for those suffering from joint and tendon disorders. Extra corporeal Pulse Activation Therapy (E.P.A.T.) sends acoustic shockwaves into bones or soft tissues in effect re injuring the area on a cellular level and breaking up scarring that has penetrated the tendons and ligaments. The controlled re injuring of the tissue allows the body to regenerate blood vessels and bone cells. The revascularization leads to faster healing and often a return to pre-injury activity.
