What happens during treatment ?
Treatment sessions take approximately 5-10 minutes depending on the disorder to be treated. Generally, 3 treatment sessions are necessary at weekly intervals.
Coupling gel is applied to the specified treatment area to enhance effectiveness. After these preparations, EPAT® pressure waves are released via the applicator which is moved over the area in a circular motion.
Why consider non-invasive EPAT®?
EPAT® has a proven success rate that is equal to or greater than that of traditional treatment methods (including surgery) and without the risks, complications and lengthy recovery time. EPAT® is performed in your physician’s office/clinic, does not require anesthesia, requires a minimal amount of time, patients can immediately bear weight (i.e. walk), and return to normal activity within a few days of the procedure.
What disorders can be treated?
Generally, acute or chronic musculoskeletal pain and/or pain that significantly impairs mobility or quality of life. Areas include:

What are the expected results?
