Midtown Wellness Institute has several non-surgical options for the treatment of sports or orthopedic injuries to the arms, elbow, knees and feet.
Midtown Wellness is excited to offer EPAT for sports and repetitive stress injuries. EPAT stands for Extracorporeal Pulse Activation Therapy and is a non-invasive, non-medicine based treatment. It uses sound waves to stimulate blood flow to the treatment area, it causes your body to release several growth factors responsible for healing, increase stem cell migration to the treatment area and improves the orientation of the collagen fibers in tendons and other tissues to make them stronger and less prone to injury. There is no downtime with this treatment, you can return to activity immediately. This is very effective for tennis elbow (lateral epicondylitis), plantar fasciitis, Achilles tendinitis, trigger points, and many other areas.
Another treatment option for sports injuries and orthopedic pain is Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) injections to the impacted area. PRP injections have been used for years by professional athletes as a treatment for tendon and ligament injuries.
