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 can be applied to:
- Foot and Ankle (plantar fasciitis)
- Back and Chest
- Upper Extremity
- Lower Extremity
- Myofascial Trigger Points
EPAT is recommended for acute and chronic musculoskeletal pain and/or pain that significantly impairs mobility or quality of life.
