Nearly one-in-four Americans suffer from musculoskeletal pain.  The EPAT® device promotes healing without surgery for musculoskeletal disorders involving soft tissue. 


The most exciting aspect about this new innovative technology is that it provides an alternative treatment option to traditional treatment methods including surgery. Extracorporeal Pulse Activation Treatment (EPAT®) increases healing rates, reduces recovery time. Moreover, healthcare expenditures and related out-of-pocket costs to patients are significantly reduced.  EPAT® allows physicians to treat a variety of traditionally difficult soft tissue problems with a new method that promotes tissue healing on its own and has no significant side effects.


Traditional treatment methods for soft tissue pain include: medication, injections, physical therapy, orthotics, expensive prosthetic devices, rest and invasive and costly surgery.  EPAT, uses a unique and proprietary set of acoustic pressure waves similar to that of lithotripsy used successfully in the past decade to treat kidney stones.  The EPAT® acoustic pressure waves stimulate a healing response in inflamed or injured soft tissue.


EPAT® procedures typically consists of 3-5 treatments at weekly intervals and takes 5-10 minutes, without the need of anesthesia.  Patients may experience immediate relief from pain however; healing of inflamed or injured tissue may take up to twelve weeks depending on the condition.
