What is EPAT Therapy?
EPAT therapy is a highly effective treatment method which uses high-energy sound waves to target painful areas of the body. EPAT therapy is one of the most advanced and highly effective non-surgical treatment methods cleared by the FDA. The treatment works by helping to improve the regenerative potential by breaking up adhesions and scar tissue to enhance blood circulation and regenerate damaged tissue.
EPAT also known as Shockwave and Pressure Wave Therapy can successfully address acute and chronic pain 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 chronic conditions.
Beneficial effects are often experienced after only 1 or 2 treatments and there is no downtime. This non-surgical therapy eliminates pain and restores mobility, thus quickly improving patients’ quality of life.

EPAT therapy is a highly effective treatment method which uses high-energy sound waves to target painful areas of the body. Pressure wave technology accelerates the healing process in the body by breaking up adhesions and scar tissue to stimulate the metabolism and enhance 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 treatment can successfully address acute and chronic pain such as: Knee Pain, Heel Pain , Foot Pain, Ankle Pain, Hamstring Pain, Back Pain, Neck Pain, Shoulder Pain , Elbow Pain, Hand and Wrist Pain and much more.
EPAT treatment is noninvasive. Gel is applied to the treatment area; 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 10-15 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. In clinical studies, patients reported being pain free and or having significant reduction in pain within the first two treatments. This non-surgical therapy for pain eliminates pain and restores mobility, thus improving patient’s quality of life.
Treatment with EPAT technology has virtually no side effects. In some cases, patients may experience minor discomfort for a few days. Patients can return to work after treatment and in most 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.
