(Extracorporeal Pulse Activation Technology)
EPAT is powered by STORZ Medical and is regenerative medicine redefined. It is the most advanced and highly effective non-invasive treatment method cleared by the FDA. This proprietary technology is based on a unique set of pressure waves that stimulate the metabolism, enhance blood circulation and accelerate the healing process. Damaged tissue gradually regenerates and eventually heals.
This non-invasive office/clinic-based procedure represents a breakthrough treatment option for a broad range of musculoskeletal conditions.
Generally, the disorders that can be treated are the acute or chronic musculoskeletal pain and/or pain that significantly impairs mobility or quality of life. Areas include:
- Back and chest
- Upper extremity
- Lower extremity
- Foot and ankle
- Myofascial trigger points
The non-invasive EPAT treatment has virtually no risks or side effects. In some cases, patients may experience some minor discomfort which may continue for a few days. It is normal to have some residual pain after intense exercise or a full day of work. The beneficial effects of EPAT are often experienced after only a few treatments.
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. Patients can immediately bear weight (i.e. walk) and return to normal activity within a few days of the procedure.
The benefits of EPAT are:
- No anesthesia
- No risk of infection
- No scarring
- No downtime
- Over 89% patient satisfaction
- Faster, easier healing
