Shockwave Therapy (EPAT)
What is Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy (EPAT)?
Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy is an innovative highly effective and non-invasive treatment for many orthopedic disorders of muscle and tendon. EPAT treatment belongs to the new type of treatments called regenerative orthopedics.
Why is EPAT considered a biological treatment?
EPAT therapy promotes self-tissue healing (tissue regeneration) on a cellular level through activation of the bodies own healing responses on a cellular level.
What kind of energy is used in EPAT?
EPAT uses acoustic or mechanical energy to treat diseased tissues in musculoskeletal system.
How does EPAT promote healing?
In summation, the waves that are transmitted through the surface of the skin are spread into the body and the body responds with increased metabolic activity around the area of the pain. This stimulates and accelerates the healing process and is especially useful for those suffering from chronic heel, shoulder, knee (patellar tendon), achilles, elbow, neck and back pain.
Frequency Specific Microcurrent
Frequency Specific Microcurrent (FSM) is an exciting new way of treating nerve pain, muscle pain and many other conditions using specific frequencies and micro amperage current. There are hundreds of practitioners in the U.S., Australia and Canada using FSM to create miraculous changes in patients to reduce pain and improve health. Most of the time, FSM produces immediate dramatic changes in tissue that make it an indispensable tool in treating pain and many other health concerns.
What is Microcurrent?
Microcurrent is current in millionths of an ampere. An ampere is a measure of the movement of electrons past a point. Microamperage current is the same kind of current your body produces on its own within each cell. This is current in millionths of an ampere. It is very small, and there isn’t enough current to stimulate sensory nerves so you cannot feel the current flow.
Microcurrent's Proven Mechanisms of Action:
Some patients have reported significant benefits immediately after or within 24 hours following a single FSM session. These reported benefits can be permanent; or they may last between four days to a week, with the duration of benefit lasting longer with each subsequent FSM session. Other patients, particularly those with long-standing symptoms, have reported benefits after six treatments. Though early intervention generally enhances favorable outcomes with FSM, good outcomes have also been observed when using FSM for long-standing symptoms, even when other treatments have failed. Many professional athletes use this technology including superstars such as Terell Owens who used it regularly in order to real his injuries.
Recovery Compression Boots
Whether the athlete is healthy or injured, the patented customizable compression sleeves provide optimal results in recovery from activity or in order to decrease post injury inflammation. The concept of using external compression to aid the body with its normal circulatory processes is crucial in faster healing and recovery.
