Acoustic Wave Treatments For Back Relief

Multi Wave Connect (EPAT) accelerates the regeneration and healing of damaged tissue

A lot of what went down in Las Vegas the weekend before Caleb* married the love of his life 18 years ago has faded from memory. What he will always remember is the “stock tip” he received from one of his groomsmen.

“He was my college roommate, and he was a real techie,” Caleb recalls. “He was into everything that had to do with computers and software, and he was telling us all about this software that people were using to create some new kind of currency or coin.

“He said people were selling these coins like they were stocks for two or three dollars apiece, and he suggested we pool our money and buy a bunch of ’em. Just for the fun of it, we all threw $50 into the pot and said, Sure, why not?

“I never thought anything would come it, but what he ended up buying was Bitcoin. He bought $300 worth, and I don’t want to say what it amounted to in the end, but it grew to a point a couple of years ago where we all decided, rather wisely I’d say, to cash out.”

Wisely indeed, because Caleb’s “$50 investment” netted him enough that he has a chance to retire early. Good thing, too, because there was a time not long ago when Caleb thought he might soon be forced into retirement by unrelenting back pain.

“My back was injured in an automobile accident about 10 years ago,” Caleb details. “Since then, I’ve had two surgeries and doctors have tried a few other treatments, but none of them did anything to ease the pain.”

Caleb’s pain was so great that he couldn’t sit or stand for long periods of time. He felt best when laying down, but he often struggled to sleep because of his pain. He was forced to abandon a lot of activities as well.

“I used to play a lot of pickup basketball to stay in shape,” Caleb notes. “I used to work out at the gym regularly, too, at least three days a week. The pain was so great that I had to give up both of those, and I started gaining weight, which irritated me even more.”

Caleb says he spent a lot of time the past two years wondering if he would be slowed by this pain forever. Then a friend with similar back issues suggested that he visit Diamond Medical Clinic.

Located in The Villages®, Diamond Medical Clinic specializes in the treatment of pain and other musculoskeletal issues through a unique noninvasive modality commonly called Multi Wave Connect.

Extracorporeal Pulse Activation Technology

Advanced and Highly Effective

Known clinically as extracorporeal pulse activation technology, or EPAT, Multi Wave Connect is the most advanced and highly effective noninvasive, drug-free treatment cleared by the Food and Drug Administration.

Treatments are performed in the doctor’s office, where a handheld device emits a set of acoustic pressure waves that stimulate the metabolism, enhancing blood circulation and accelerating the regeneration and healing of damaged tissue.

Multi Wave Connect has proven effective in the treatment of a range of musculoskeletal conditions in the neck, shoulder, back, chest, feet and ankles. It is also used in the treatment of erectile dysfunction using Multi Wave Connect protocols.

Shristi Shrestha, MD, of Diamond Medical Clinic, says the technology has been around for about 40 years.

“The acoustic pressure waves penetrate about three inches below the skin,”
Dr. Shrestha explains. “That’s deeper than any chiropractic or massage therapy can penetrate, and by affecting tissue at that level, you get what we call scar reorganization.

“That’s important because scar tissue can get rock hard and impinge on the nerves and muscles in a way that prohibits them from moving naturally. But Multi Wave Connect gets in there and loosens that scar tissue to a point where we can actually remodel it.”

Another benefit of Multi Wave Connect is that the acoustic pressure waves help eliminate the root cause of pain. That makes it far more effective than the medications or injections often prescribed for such issues.

“Musculoskeletal pain can be caused by many things, such as pinched nerves or damaged muscles, tendons or joints,” Dr. Shrestha points out. “Many physicians treat these problems with opiates, but opiates don’t cure anything.

They just eliminate the pain.

“Our Multi Wave Connect machine helps to heal the tissue. It regenerates old blood vessels and helps form new ones, which further reduces pain. It produces its waves in a broad spectrum, which allows us to treat the entire problem area.”

Studies show that the painless pulsations produced during a full regimen of Multi Wave Connect therapy has eliminated pain and restored full mobility in more than 80 percent of patients with no side effects.

Rapid Results

After conducting a thorough examination, Dr. Shrestha determined Caleb’s pain was largely a result of a massive buildup of scar tissue, a byproduct of all the invasive treatments he’d previously had done on his back.

That made him a good candidate for Multi Wave Connect therapy, and as she often does, Dr. Shrestha recommended a full regimen of six treatments. As it is with many patients, Caleb experienced relief after just a few 30-minute sessions.

“I will tell you that I have looked for many, many solutions for my spine pain,” Caleb relates. “Doctors have tried everything from shots and medications to spinal cord stimulators, but this Multi Wave Connect is the only thing that’s worked for me.

“I went to Diamond Medical Clinic because my friend said the wave machine worked for him and allowed him to avoid shots or medications. I’m glad I did because I’m no longer in agonizing pain.

“Thanks to Diamond Medical Clinic, I’ve got my life back. I’ve gone back to work and I’m even working and playing a little pickup basketball now and then. I’m also sleeping better. My whole life is just better overall.”

Since his six initial Multi Wave Connect treatments a little more than a year ago, Caleb has returned for three “booster” sessions. He says he will gladly continue to do that because the therapy proved to be so effective.

“I was at a point where I was thinking I would never be out of pain and might never live a normal life again,” Caleb laments. “I felt like an invalid. But Diamond Medical Clinic and its Multi Wave Connect have changed all that. I can’t thank them enough.”
