Extra Corporeal Shock Wave Therapy or ESWT/EPAT

Has your doctor prescribed physical therapy, steroid injections or suggested surgery to treat your pain?

Physical Therapy, steroid injections, and surgery take weeks and hours of your precious time, have known side effects, complications or require rehabilitation and weeks of healing. Sometimes they do not correct the problem and may even create a new one. Deductibles and copays add up. Downtime is disruptive and frustrating.

Two Ways to Treat Challenging Problems

We have two amazing alternatives that are FDA approved and can save you time and money with an average 75 -91% success rate. Each has its own unique applications. Both are healing weapons that we deploy against a wide variety of painful conditions of the body.

1. Storz Medical D-Actor 200 Ultra

Our Storz Medical D-Actor 200 Ultra Radial pressure wave is a surface healing bomb that spreads wide because the wave is spread out in a radial fashion. Radial pressure wave (EPAT) shockwave is an excellent therapy for many conditions. Our Storz Medical D-Actor 200 Ultra uses one of 9 different radial pressure transmitters to broadcast into/or pinpoint pain regions, as needed. We use radial for large, more superficial muscle strains and myofascial pain, as well as to broadcast more diffused pressure for boney issues like TMJ.

2. MyAct PiezoWave2T

Our MyAct PiezoWave2T ESWTFocused shockwave is more like a bunker buster bomb that goes under the surface and detonates deep under the skin’s surface up to 3.5 in. without the surface discomfort associated with (EPAT). Also, our MyAct PiezoWave2T ESWTFocused shockwave is a “hunter seeker”. Patients generally feel it only where the inflammation or irritation is located, diseased tissue (tendonitis/arthritis for example) or identifying deep trigger points. The MyAct PiezoWave2T ESWTFocused shockwave assists the doctor in identifying very specific areas of injury and then delivers a series of impulses precisely where they are most effective. There is absolutely no pain or discomfort experienced in areas that are not injured.

It comes down to penetration depth, delivering the most energy deeper into the tissue. This allows for more comfort and deeper more effective outcomes on a cellular level of stimulation.

Why Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy?

Our ESWT/EPAT therapies have no side effects, are non-surgical, and are available at a reasonable cost. Pressure wave treatments are noninvasive and promote accelerated recovery of injured soft tissue, bone, heel and joint pain. Therapy sessions are short, usually 4 – 5 minutes in length, and provide successful relief of chronic pain and restore mobility painlessly. Permanent relief typically begins about 72 hours following the first treatment with sustained significant improvement occurring over the 12 – 16 weeks following the final treatment.

*Dr. J. Adam Wagner is a leader in the community for his expertise in delivering Radial and Focused Shockwave therapies. He has owned and utilized this therapy since 2014 and has upgraded and replaced his equipment in both 2022 and 2024. His state-of-the-art equipment includes “top of the line” accessories and functionality.

How does Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy work?

The technology in Storz Medical D-Actor 200 and MyAct PiezoWave2T extracorporeal pressure wave was developed by Richard Wolf, the leader in Lithotripsy therapy. While standard Lithotripsy is used to shatter large kidney stones into fragments small enough for the patient to pass with minimal discomfort, our therapies are used to address many common soft tissue and bone issues and has been used for decades on millions including large animals, college and professional athletes.

Pressure wave therapy is a modern and highly effective treatment method: high-energy sound waves are introduced into the painful areas of the body. Pressure wave technology accelerates the healing process by stimulating metabolism and enhancing blood circulation to regenerate damaged tissue. Strong energy pulses are applied to the affected area. These pulses occur for short periods of time, creating micro-cavitation bubbles that expand and burst. The force created by these bubbles penetrates tissue and stimulates cells in the body that are responsible for bone and connective tissue healing. This effect stimulates new blood vessels to be made (angiogenesis), stem cells to be recruited to the area along with many other immune mediators to stimulate the body to heal. This innovative therapy causes pathological alterations in tendons, ligaments, capsules, muscles and bones so they can be systematically repaired.  In fact, this therapy is also FDA approved for erectile dysfunction in men.
