Sports injuries can be painful, and they take you away from the sport you love. You want to get on your feet and back in the game as quickly as possible, so it’s important to find an effective treatment option that can help you do just that. EPAT shockwave therapy is an FDA-approved, non-invasive treatment option with many benefits for those injured in a sports activity.
No Down Time
Immediately after your EPAT shockwave therapy treatment, you’ll be weight bearing and upright. This is one of the key benefits of the treatment that make it such a popular choice for athletes.
In clinical studies done over many years, EPAT shockwave therapy has seen an 80 percent success rate. Those who experienced successful treatment also reported that their pain relief lasted for years after the treatment, meaning the effects are long-term.
Another benefit of shockwave therapy is that it’s non-invasive, so it doesn’t harm your biomechanics at all. Future treatment options aren’t limited because of having had shockwave therapy, and since there is no incision you’re not running the risk of infection.
If you’re sensitive to anesthesia or you simply don’t like the idea of being put under, EPAT shockwave therapy is a great treatment option for you. Because this treatment is non-invasive, there’s no need to use any anesthesia.
After having EPAT therapy, you’ll be able to get back to work and your regular activities in one to two days. What’s more, you can return to strenuous activities like training after just four weeks. The ability to get back on your feet quickly and not have to undergo anesthesia is priceless. You can get back to the sport you love without recovering from incisions, risking infection or staying bedridden. For this reason, EPAT shockwave therapy is a great option for committed athletes that have suffered an injury.
