Radial Pressure Wave Therapy, also referred to as Extracorporeal Pulsed Activation Therapy (EPAT) and Radial Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy (rESWT), is a acoustic sound wave procedure regarded as one of the most cost effective and safest of conservative management approaches to treat musculoskeletal disorders of various soft tissue dysfunctions.

The therapy uses mechanical transduction. It creates a positive and negative pressure within the cells to induce a pro-inflammatory process for the body to stimulate healing by introducing a well controlled micro trauma to the tissue. Shockwave creates a cellular shearing process to the pathological tissue(s) that are not moving past an intermediate phase of healing to re-initiate the bodies natural healing processes.

Shockwave therapy units reach a therapeutic penetration depth from 1.25 inches to 2 inches.

On average, shockwave therapy normally consists of 1-6 treatments to help produce
effective clinical outcomes.

Shockwave therapy has specific transmitters to effectively treat the desired area of diagnosis.
