August 26, 2019

Do you have lower back pain? Lower back pain is a common pain for individuals of all ages and walks of life. Many forms of treating lower back pain can be painful, expensive, or ineffective. If you are looking for a solution to your lower back pain, consider EPAT!

Lower Back Pain

EPAT is short for Extracorporeal Pulse Activation Technology. This method of relieving back pain uses shockwave therapy to enhance blood flow, reduce pain and rigidity, and improve the elasticity of soft tissues. The mechanical vibrations or pulses that come from EPAT are intended to promote healing.

EPAT procedures are used in many practices, including sports medicine, orthopedics, veterinary medicine, urology, and physiotherapy. EPAT is so beneficial because it has been proven to affect clients quickly and effectively. Additionally, the rate of recovery is significantly faster than alternative approaches to relieving back pain.

The EPAT procedure is one of the most efficient non-surgical treatments available for lower back pain, according to multiple studies. In a 2015 Journal of Physical Therapy Science study, 15 patients who were suffering lower back pain were treated with EPAT and reported significant pain level reductions and a high percentage of success.

There are many reasons someone may have lower back pain. For example, you may be experiencing lower back pain because you have a joint problem, a disc problem, an inflamed nerve root, a lumbar herniated disc, a deformity, osteoarthritis, or degenerative disc disease. Whatever your reason for lower back pain, consider EPAT. We here at Apex Sports and Regenerative Medicine offer EPAT as a solution to your pain.
