Extracorporeal Pulse Activation Technology (EPAT), sometimes referred to as ESWT or Shockwave Therapy, is clinically proven and today’s most advanced, non-invasive technology for treating pain.
We want our patients to be well-informed about their conditions and treatment decisions. Discussion and education about the root cause of the patient's diagnosis will help to prevent future reoccurrence.
Extracorporeal Pulse Activation Technology (EPAT), sometimes referred to as ESWT or Shockwave Therapy, is clinically proven and today’s most advanced, non-invasive technology for treating pain. In as few as 3 weekly treatments in our Lake County office. It's quick, easy, and non-invasive. The FDA Approved DuoLith SD1 TT is the next generation of ESWT Extracorporeal Shock Wave Treatment with patented focused “Cylindrical Source“.
With its progressive technological advancements, Extracorporeal Shock Wave Treatment (ESWT) delivers an evidence-based, non-surgical solution for patients suffering from chronic musculoskeletal conditions. It addresses the increasing demand for patient convenience, less down-time and risk.
ESWT has been used to successfully treat
Benefits of Shockwave Therapy
At Gurnee Podiatry & Sports Medicine we offer shockwave therapy in our office.
Dr. Schoene and her staff are one of the few therapy centers to offer this service to residents of Gurnee, Libertyville, Waukegan, Mundelein, Lake Bluff, and the rest of Lake County.
