How Does EPAT Work?
EPAT uses pressure waves that stimulate the metabolism, enhance blood circulation, and accelerate the healing process. Damaged tissue gradually regenerates and eventually heals. Treatment sessions will take about 5-10 minutes depending on the area that is being treated. Treatments are performed at our office and do not require anesthesia.
Most patients will require between 3 to 5 sessions.
Some patients report immediate pain relief after the first treatment. Maximal effects can take about 4 weeks or longer. Over 80% of patients treated report to be pain free and/or have a significant reduction in pain. Click For Video
Is it Safe?
EPAT is technology that has been cleared by the FDA and is currently being used around the world. Extensive clinical studies and tests have confirmed both its safety and efficacy. The EPAT treatment comes with virtually no risks or side effects.
Why Should You Consider EPAT?
The success rate of EPAT is equal to or greater than traditional treatment methods, including surgery. This treatment option leaves out the risks, complications and lengthy recovery time of surgery.
