Shockwave Therapy

Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy (ESWT) or Extra Corporeal Activation Technique (EPAT)

At John D Arsen, DPM, Inc. in Lake Orion, Michigan, provides to its patients a breakthrough solution to alleviate pain in the feet and legs. This non-invasive procedure in which shock waves are used is known as Extra-Corporeal Shock Wave Therapy (ESWT) or also known as Extra Corporeal Activation Technique (EPAT).

This procedure has been used to treat over 2.5 million patients. This non-surgical treatment involves the delivery of energy in the form of shock waves to affected areas of the body triggering the body’s own natural repair mechanisms and stimulating healing.

This treatment is performed when a therapeutic flow of energy is transferred directly to the ailing area through a handheld applicator used by the professionals at John D Arsen DPM, INC.  This highly effective treatment may yield complete results after 3-4 sessions, each lasting less than 3-5 minutes and scheduled 7-10 days apart.

At Dr Arsens and Dr. Schons office, our goal is to help you conquer pain as we have done for high school, college and professional athletes. We understand how frustrating it is when you have tried everything from multiple steroid injections to medications, splints, braces, strapping, taping with little to no relief. Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy (ESWT) or Extra Corporeal Activation Technique (EPAT) is the non-invasive solution for conditions not helped by anti-inflammatory or immobilization devices.
