Extracorporeal Pulse Activation Technology (EPAT)
Less Pain and Faster Recovery with New EPAT Treatment - (732) 333-6360
EPAT, or Extracorporeal Pulse Activation Technology is a highly effective
treatment that uses a unique set of pressure waves to stimulate metabolism,
enhance blood circulation, and
accelerate the healing process. Research demonstrates that this treatment can stimulate the body to reverse
the very same tissue changes associated with tendinopathy to gradually
regenerate and eventually heal the damaged tissue.
Conveniently, the procedure
takes 5-10 minutes and is generally performed 3-5 times at weekly intervals. EPAT can be
performed in combination with traditional physical therapy or as a stand-alone
treatment. When performed by your doctor of physical therapy, there are
very few side effects or risks involved and
over 80% of patients treated report to be pain-free and/or have significant pain reduction.

What Is Causing Your Musculoskeletal Pain?
Crucial to EPAT treatment is identifying the underlying cause of any musculoskeletal
pain you’re experiencing. It’s estimated that over 100 million
Americans suffer from musculoskeletal pain each year, the causes of which
vary among patients.
- Typical sources of musculoskeletal pain in individuals who suffer include:
- Repetitive motion, i.e. overuse
- Muscle imbalances, i.e. poor posture
- Injury, trauma, and post-operative surgery
- General wear & tear from daily living activities
EPAT can effectively treat all types of musculoskeletal discomfort, from
acute pain caused by a recent injury to long-term, recurring, or chronic
pain experienced over the course of months or years. Once we have accurately
identified the type of pain experienced by the patient, we can begin an
EPAT treatment regimen.
EPAT is recommended for acute and chronic musculoskeletal pain and/or pain
that significantly impairs mobility or quality of life.
