EPAT is the most advanced and highly effective noninvasive treatment method cleared by the FDA. This technology is based on the unique set of pressure ways that stimulate the metabolism, enhance, blood circulation and accelerate the healing process. Damaged tissue gradually regenerates and eventually heals. This noninvasive office-based procedure represents a breakthrough treatment option for broad range of musculoskeletal conditions.

Generally acute or chronic musculoskeletal pain such as tendinitis, plantar fasciitis, Achilles tendinitis and scar adhesions in the foot and ankle are all treatable by this therapy.

The noninvasive EPAT treatment has virtually no risks or side effects. In some cases, patients may experience a minor discomfort which may continue for a few days. It is normal to have some residual discomfort after intense exercise or a full day of work.

Treatment sessions take approximately 5 to 10 minutes and generally 3 treatment sessions are necessary at weekly intervals.

Treatment is performed by using coupling gel that is applied to this specific area of treatment to enhance the effectiveness. EPAT has proven success rate that is equal or greater than that of traditional treatment methods, including surgery without the risks, complications and lengthy recovery time. No anesthesia is required and patient can immediately weight bear and return to normal activity within a few days of the procedure.

The beneficial effects of EPAT often experienced after only 3 treatments. Some patients report immediate pain relief after the treatment, although it can take up to 4 weeks for pain relief to begin. The procedure eliminates pain and resourceful mobility, thus improving your quality of life. Over 80% of patients treated report to be pain free, and/or have significant pain reduction.
