Extracorporeal Pulse Activation Technology (EPAT) is a non-invasive procedure that utilizes acoustic energy and is designed to enhance blood circulation and accelerate the healing process. It improves the regenerative potential rather than further damaging an area that has degenerated because of poor blood flow, tissue injury, overuse or weakness. It is often used to treat plantar fasciitis and Achilles tendonitis non-invasively, with no anesthesia and with minimal risks or side effects.
Coupling gel is applied to the specified treatment area and EPAT pressure waves are released via the applicator. Treatment sessions take about 10 minutes, and generally 3 to 5 treatment sessions are necessary at weekly intervals. Occasionally, patients experience some minor discomfort for a few days following the procedure. Some patients report immediate pain relief and others begin to notice after a few weeks. There is no risk of infection, no scarring, and no downtime.
