Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy (ESWT) also known as Extracorporeal Pulse Activation Technology (EPAT) can successfully address acute and chronic pain. It is a highly effective treatment method using high-energy sound waves that are introduced into the painful areas of the body. It is a highly effective noninvasive treatment method cleared by the FDA. The treatment works by helping to improve the regenerative potential and enhancing blood circulation to regenerate damaged tissue.
