EPAT, commonly known as Focused Shock Wave Therapy and Extracorporeal Magnetotransduction Technology (EMTT), are new, cutting-edge technologies that boost your body’s regenerative potential for faster, long-term healing. Found only at Charleston Sports Medicine, we continue to lead the way in advanced regenerative treatment therapies.
Conventional treatment like cortisone, physical therapy, and surgery have their place in orthopedic treatment plans. Even so, chronic pain relief often returns or never fully abates. Out-of-pocket costs add up while patients continue to be limited in lifestyle activities. We can provide our patients with a better option.
Shock Wave Therapy is an evidence-based treatment that gets to the root of your pain, facilitating healing and accelerating your recovery. Shock Wave Therapy (EPAT) improves your body’s regenerative potential rather than further damaging an area that has degenerated because of poor blood flow, tissue injury, overuse, or weakness.
In as few as 3 to 5 weekly 7 to 10-minute sessions in the office, patients enjoy a faster, easier path to pain relief. When our patients say “Yes.” to Focused Shock Wave Therapy, they say “No.” to surgery, downtime, scarring, and anesthesia.
To further increase the efficacy of Shock Wave Therapy (EPAT), our Charleston Sports Medicine physicians combine Shock Wave technology with additional regenerative, non-invasive solutions like platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy. Schedule your appointment now to determine the best treatment approach.
