There are many reasons why someone might be seeking chiropractic care in the city of Freeport NY. Someone might be interested in shock wave therapy, for example. If you are looking for a chiropractor in this area, you should feel free to look into what Dr. Walter E. Mendoza Chiropractor P.C. has to offer.
Extracorporeal Pulse Activation Technology
You may have heard of shock wave therapy before. Extracorporeal Pulse Activation Technology, or EPAT, is a type of extracorporeal shock wave therapy that uses a novel set of acoustic pressure waves to stimulate your metabolism, improve your circulation, and speed up your body’s natural healing process. It is considered to be a non-invasive treatment method, and it has been cleared by the FDA.
Among non-invasive treatment methods, it is considered to be one of the most effective and most advanced. There are virtually no risks or side effects when this procedure is performed by a qualified healthcare professional. There is also no risk of scarring or infection. This technology has been through many clinical studies and tests, which confirm the efficacy and safety of the procedure.
Shock Wave Therapy Sessions
If you go in for EPAT treatment, you should be aware that sessions are typically quick – typically between five and ten minutes. However, depending on the condition or injury that is being treated, the length of sessions can vary.
The procedure involves the application of coupling gel to the skin of the treated area. After our practitioner applies the gel, a handheld applicator will be used to release EPAT pressure waves over the area of concern while the applicator is moved in circles. The pulses slowly grow more intense until they reach the desired level. In addition to the benefits already stated, EPAT restores mobility and treats the source of the injury or pain.
