Extracorporeal Pulse Activation Technology, the most advanced non-invasive treatment for connective tissue disorders.
What is EPAT?
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/clinic based procedure represents a breakthrough treatment option for a broad range of musculoskeletal conditions.
What conditions can be treated?
Generally, acute or chronic musculoskeletal pain and/or pain that significantly impairs mobility or quality of life including: foot and heel pain, achilles pain, tendon and/or tendon insertion pain, neuromas, and trigger points. We also use EPAT for erectile disorders and to break up scar tissue that causes pain.
What can you expect during EPAT treatment?
Coupling gel is applied to the treatment area of interest to enhance effectiveness. EPAT pressure waves are released via the applicator which is moved over the area of interest in a circular motion. Treatment sessions take approximately 5-10 minutes depending on the disorder to be treated. Generally, at least 3 treatment sessions are necessary at weekly intervals.
What are the possible side effects or 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. It is normal to have some residual pain after intense exercise or a full day of work.
