What is EPAT (Extracorporeal Pulse Activation Technology)?

Extracorporeal Pulse Activation Technology (EPAT®) is the most advanced and highly effective non-invasive treatment method cleared by the FDA. This proprietary technology is based on a unique set of pressure waves that stimulate the metabolism, enhance blood circulation and accelerate the healing process. Damaged tissue gradually regenerates and eventually heals. This non-invasive office based procedure represents a breakthrough treatment option for a broad range of musculoskeletal conditions.  Over 80% of patients treated report to be pain free and/or have significant pain reduction.

What disorders can be treated?

Generally, EPAT can be utilized to treat acute or chronic musculoskeletal pain and/or pain that significantly impairs mobility or quality of life. Areas include: Foot and Ankle, Shoulder, Elbow, Knee, Lower Back and Myofascial Trigger Points.

What are the possible side effects/ complications?

The non-invasive EPAT® treatment has virtually no risks or side effects. In some cases, patients may experience some minor discomfort which may continue for a few days.

What is the duration of the treatment and how many treatments will I need?

Treatment sessions take approximately 15-30 minutes depending on the disorder to be treated. Generally, 3 treatment sessions are necessary at weekly intervals.
