EPAT, is an advanced Swiss based
technology that naturally gets to the root of pain, facilitating healing and
accelerating recovery. EPAT improves your body’s regenerative potential, rather
than further damaging an area that has degenerated because of poor blood flow,
tissue injury, overuse, or weakness.
No anesthesia required
No risk of infection
Faster, easier healing
Extracorporeal Pulse Activation
Technology (EPAT®) is an 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.
This non-invasive office/clinic-based
procedure represents a breakthrough treatment option for a broad range of
trigger points and myofascial pain with
rotator cuff tendinosis with or without
gluteal tendons, trochanteric bursitis
jumpers’ knee/patellar tendinosis
foot and heel pain
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.
As an alternative to traditional
treatment methods including surgery, EPAT improves the regenerative potential,
rather than further damaging an area that has degenerated because of poor blood
flow, tissue injury, overuse, or weakness.
WHAT ARE THE EXPECTED RESULTS?
The beneficial effects of EPAT are often experienced after only 3-5
treatments. Some patients report immediate pain relief after the treatment,
although it can take up to four weeks for pain relief to begin. The procedure
eliminates pain and restores full mobility, thus improving your quality of life
IS IT SAFE?
Yes. This FDA cleared technology was developed in Europe and is
currently used around the globe. A wealth of medical experience,
state-of-the-art engineering and optimal quality have been built into each EPAT
device, and extensive clinical studies and tests have confirmed its safety and
efficacy. When performed by a qualified caregiver, Extracorporeal Pulse
Activation Technology (EPAT) has virtually no risks or side effects.
DOES IT HURT?
Oftentimes patients feel a pulsed vibration like sensation that is
comfortable and well tolerated.
WHAT IS THE DURATION OF THE TREATMENT AND HOW
MANY TREATMENTS WILL I NEED?
Treatment sessions take approximately 5-10 minutes depending on the
disorder to be treated. Generally, 3-6 treatment sessions are necessary over
HOW IS THE TREATMENT PERFORMED?
Coupling gel is applied to the treatment area of interest to
enhance effectiveness. After these preparations, EPAT pressure waves are
released via the applicator moved over the area of interest in a circular
WHY CONSIDER NON-INVASIVE EPAT?
EPAT has a proven success rate that is equal to or greater than
that of traditional treatment methods and without the risks, complications and
lengthy recovery time. EPAT is performed in our clinic, does not require
anesthesia, requires a minimal amount of time, patients can bear weight (i.e.
walk) immediately, and return to work/normal activities within 24-48 hours,
resuming strenuous activities after 4 weeks.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF EPAT?
Evidence based, Non-invasive, No anesthesia, No risk of infection,
No scarring, No downtime, easier healing.
