This Focused Shock Wave device uses an electromagnetically generated shock wave produced within a hand-held applicator (F-SW Handpiece). The shock wave is generated by discharging a high voltage capacitor located in the control unit into a cylindrically shaped coil system in the handpiece which is surrounded by a cylindrical metallic membrane. The transient magnetic field produced by the coil induces eddy currents in the metal membrane, causing it to repel from the coil, producing a pressure wave. The membrane is immersed in water and the pressure wave produced by the membrane propagates through the water to a concentric parabolic reflector, where it is reflected to a focal point outside of the handpiece in front of the reflector.
With its progressive technological advancements, Extracorporeal Pulse Activation Technology (EPAT/ESWT) delivers an evidence-based*, non-surgical solution for patients suffering from chronic heel pain.
It addresses the increasing demand for patient convenience, less down-time and risk, as well as better clinical and economic outcomes, and improved practice efficiencies and cash-flow.
Health care professionals are using EPAT/ESWT to successfully treat acute or chronic musculoskeletal pain and/or:
Dr. Figa never disappoints! Had a knee problem and my doctor said to let it heal on its own and I would be out for at least a month. 3 sessions at figa chiropractor and I was back at it on the field with great mobility! Awesome staff, great environment! Definitely recommended and have recommended to family and friends!
Dr. Figa has done amazing things with my family and friends. I was always afraid of chiros, because one guy broke my dads rib. All the dear went away went away when I met this guy. Customer for life. BTW his office changed to 9855 S Priest Dr ste 101. Don't go to the wrong place like I did.. lol
I have some pretty painful neck & back issues & i have been really hesitant to go bc of the impression a chiropractor just cracks your issues & leave but this office & their staff actually care about your well-being and your issue and they’re equipment is incredible! Kelsey thank you for all your kindness & information & making this process so easy & enjoyable!!
