“With EPAT, anything is possible!” touts Dr. Sebastian Sinz from the 2019 FIS Snowboard, Freestyle & Freeski Championships
When vying for one of the coveted medals at the 2019 FIS Snowboard, Freestyle & Freeski World Championships, the last thing winter athletes want to get in the way of a successful run is pain.
To make sure that didn’t happen, Sports Medicine Physician Dr. Sebastian Sinz, official medical supervisor of the German Ski Association and the owner of Sinz Holistic Sports Medicine, accompanied the German team to Park City, Utah last month.
Dr. Sinz’s mission: to bring EPAT (Extracorporeal Pulse Activation Technology) right to the site of the competition and offer it as a treatment option to gold-medal hopefuls who were struggling with musculoskeletal pain.
CuraMedix provided Dr. Sinz with a radial EPAT device, the OrthoPulse Ultra 100, so that he could treat the athletes during the competition – ensuring that they were able to perform at their best without risking any downtime or side effects.
Dr. Sinz explains:
Dr. Sinz also worked with Selina Jörg, who went on to win the gold medal, and bronze medalist for parallel slalom Ramona Theresia Hofmeister. He describes their conditions and treatment as follows:
Dr. Sinz is grateful that EPAT has led to great outcomes for his patients and the athletes at this year’s event. He is happy to offer a non-invasive treatment option that lets athletes get back to doing what they love – faster and without surgery. He recalls an incident from the Youth World Competition in 2017.
