FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Q: What is ECSWT / EPAT Technology?
ECSWT / EPAT is a non-invasive 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 in the body by stimulating the 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.
Q: What type of conditions can be treated with ECSWT/ EPAT Technology?
ECSWT / EPAT treatment can successfully address acute and chronic pain such as: Knee Pain, Heel
Pain , Foot Pain, Ankle Pain, Hamstring Pain, Back Pain, Neck Pain, Shoulder Pain , Elbow
Pain, Wrist Pain and Hand Pain and much more.

ECSWT / EPAT treatment is noninvasive. Gel is applied to the treatment area; pressure waves are
then released through the applicator as it is moved over the treatment area.
