Experience Faster Healing, Reduced Pain, and Improved Mobility with Cutting-Edge Shock Wave Therapy

Break Free from Pain: Prisk Orthopaedics and Wellness Unleashes the Power of CuraMedix EPAT

Are you tired of living with chronic musculoskeletal pain that limits your daily activities? Do you feel like you've exhausted every treatment option, only to find temporary relief or worse, no relief at all? At Prisk Orthopaedics and Wellness, we understand your frustration. That's why we're excited to introduce you to CuraMedix EPAT, a revolutionary breakthrough in pain management and tissue healing.

What is CuraMedix EPAT?

CuraMedix EPAT, or Extracorporeal Pulse Activation Technology, is a non-invasive, non-surgical treatment that utilizes high-energy radial shock waves to target the source of your pain. These gentle yet powerful waves penetrate deep into your tissues, stimulating your body's natural healing mechanisms and promoting:

  • Reduced inflammation: EPAT targets the inflamed tissues, reducing swelling and pain.
  • Enhanced blood circulation: The shock waves stimulate the growth of new blood vessels, delivering essential nutrients to injured areas and accelerating healing.
  • Pain relief: EPAT disrupts pain signals at the source, providing long-lasting relief without the risks and side effects of medication.
  • Improved tissue regeneration: The shock waves stimulate the production of collagen, the building block of healthy tissues, promoting faster repair and recovery.

Benefits of CuraMedix EPAT for Musculoskeletal Conditions:

CuraMedix EPAT is a versatile treatment effective for a wide range of musculoskeletal conditions!

Numerous scientific studies support the efficacy of ESWT in the treatment of musculoskeletal and soft tissue disorders. In the athletic and aging population, overuse issues arise repeatedly, and concerted effort is made to treat and make return to an active lifestyle possible in short order. Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy gets to the root cause of the dysfunction and accelerates healing.

Let's dive into predominant athletic injuries and how shockwave can help treat each condition.

  • Achilles tendinopathy - Repetitive minuscule injuries and tears to the tendon fibers take an enormous toll on the Achilles tendon and the athlete enduring the injury. Athletes who suffer from Achilles tendinopathy may experience pain, swelling, stiffness, and limited mobility.

    Using Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy for Achilles tendinopathy is exceptionally effective. Explore the evidence to see how you can help athletes in your care score functional gains - quickly and efficiently; read this study.

  • Tennis or golfer's elbow - Lateral epicondylitis (Tennis elbow) and medial epicondylitis (Golfer's elbow) are common inflammatory conditions triggered by repetitive motion. Both are prevalent among athletes, and they can benefit from shockwave therapy.

  • Stress fractures – Bone stress injuries (BSI) frequently plague runners, and due to the associated prolonged time necessary away from sport, the toll it takes is physically and mentally impactful. And while the diagnosis is disheartening, shockwave offers new hope. A recent retrospective study by Alexander Beling, MD, Amol Saxena, DPM, Karsten Hollander, MD, and Adam S.Tenforde, MD, explores the effectiveness of ESWT in the management of BSI in runners.

  • Frozen shoulder – This frustrating ailment among athletes impinges shoulder movement, limiting motion and affecting daily living. The severity of the frozen shoulder will dictate your approach to shockwave therapy. EPAT will effectively address the broader area, and ESWT will treat it in a more focused manner. Review a Practice profile that includes a case study on frozen shoulder.

  • Plantar fasciitis – This inflammatory condition is commonplace in athletic populations and causes severe heel and arch pain; with particularly acute symptoms upon rising or taking that first step out of bed in the morning. The plantar fascia, which connects the heel bone to the toes, becomes inflamed and is exacerbated by overuse. This condition is excruciating and can sideline athletes because even standing and walking is difficult, never mind performing at a high level. Fortunately, the efficacy of Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy for Plantar fasciitis is well-established and proven by multiple clinical trials and meta-analyses, and here's one to explore.

  • Rotator cuff injuries – Rotator cuff injuries can be acute or chronic. Usually, the pain increases at night, and the presence of shoulder weakness is part of the symptom profile. Calcium deposits may also form on the shoulder tendon. Dive into this study for full details of findings on treating with shockwave, "Effects of High-Energy Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy on Pain, Functional Disability, Quality of Life, and Ultrasonographic Changes in Patients with Calcified Rotator Cuff Tendinopathy."

  • Strained calves or hamstrings – These injuries are high on the list of conditions among athletes of all ages, and published studies prove the efficacy of ESWT for both calf strains and hamstrings.

  • Shin splints – Considered a painful condition, shin splints occur from inflammation in the muscles, tendons, and tissues surrounding the tibia. Also referred to as Medial tibial stress syndrome, it was one of 8 functional lower limb injuries explored in a study focused on the effectiveness of shockwave therapy, and it was determined that ESWT delivers multiple effects contributing to tissue healing and pain relief.

  • Hip pain – Hip pain in athletes comes in many forms, and Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy has been shown to greatly alleviate hip pain. Peruse a patient success story about an avid golfer and weightlifter who received shockwave treatment and now plays the best golf of his life.

  • Jumper's knees – Another frequently seen overuse injury which can develop slowly over time and become chronic. The results are in - Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy demonstrated greater effectiveness and safety compared to traditional conservative approaches to chronic patellar tendinopathy.
