EPAT Therapy is a highly effective treatment method: high-energy sound waves are introduced into the painful areas of the body. It is one of the most advanced and highly effective noninvasive treatment methods cleared by the FDA.
The treatment works by helping to improve the regenerative potential, and enhancing blood circulation to regenerate damaged tissue.
Beneficial effects are often experienced after only 1 or 2 treatments and there is no downtime. The non-surgical therapy for pain not only eliminates pain but it also restores mobility, thus quickly improving the quality of life for patients.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
EPAT Therapy is a non-invasive modern and highly effective treatment method: high-energy sound waves are introduced into the painful areas of the body. EPAT technology also known as ESWT accelerates the healing process in the body by stimulating the metabolism and enhancing blood circulation to regenerate damaged tissue. Strong energy pulses are applied to the affected area. These pulses occur for short periods of time, creating micro-cavitation bubbles that expand and burst. The force created by these bubbles penetrates tissue and stimulates cells in the body that are responsible for bone and connective tissue healing.
EPAT Therapy treatment also known as Shockwave Therapy (ESWT) can successfully address acute and chronic pain for a wide range of treatable conditions such as: Knee Pain, Heel Pain, Foot Pain, Ankle Pain, Hamstring Pain, Back Pain, Neck Pain, Shoulder Pain , Elbow Pain, Wrist Pain and Hand Pain. It is also used to address sports injuries and many other painful conditions.
EPAT treatment is noninvasive. Gel is applied to the treatment area; acoustic sound waves (pressure waves) are then released through the applicator as it is moved over the treatment area.
The number of sessions needed depends on the condition that is being treated. Each treatment session takes between 10 to 15 minutes and can vary depending on the condition that is being treated.
Beneficial effects are often experienced after only 1 or 2 treatments and there is no downtime. Many patients report immediate pain relief after treatment. The EPAT Technology has a 91% success rate as per clinical studies, and patients treated report being pain free and /or have a significant reduction in pain. This non-surgical therapy for pain eliminates pain and restores mobility, thus improving the patient’s quality of life.
Treatment with EPAT Therapy has virtually no side effects. In some cases, patients may experience minor discomfort for a few days. Patients can return to work after treatments and in most all cases there is no down time.
Most people are good candidates for EPAT treatment however patients who are pregnant, have a pacemaker or current cancer are not suitable for treatment with EPAT Technology. Your doctor will provide you with information about conditions you may have that would affect your ability to undergo treatment.
EPAT also known as Shockwave Therapy (ESWT) has a proven success rate that can be as effective or more effective than other methods such as surgery or pharmaceuticals without the with the risks, complications or long recovery times. EPAT treatments are non-invasive and promote accelerated recovery.
