EPAT Non Surgical Pain Relief
Our experienced orthopaedic doctors at Orthopaedic Institute of Central Jersey offer Extracorporeal Pulse Activated Technology, or EPAT®, to patients suffering from musculoskeletal pain. EPAT® is a non-invasive procedure that uses acoustic pressure waves to relieve musculoskeletal pains and aches. Musculoskeletal pain can vary from person to person, but it often causes symptoms such as limited motion, aching or stiffness, and pain that increases with movement. EPAT® is an FDA-approved treatment that can help relieve chronic and acute musculoskeletal pain by improving blood circulation in the affected area, stimulating metabolism, and expediting the healing process.
Benefits of EPAT
Musculoskeletal pain can often result from sports injuries, overuse, or strain in particular areas of the body. EPAT® makes it possible to potentially increase the healing in these areas and enhance mobility. Some of the potential benefits of EPAT® include:
- Little to no recovery time needed
- More rapid healing when compared to other methods
- Less pain – patients have reported little to no pain after EPAT® treatments
- Can be more cost-effective than other treatment options
- No incisions
- No needles
- No scarring or risk of infection
Patients who have been treated with EPAT® can potentially experience a significant reduction of pain in the affected area. Many patients have reported relief from most or all pain in the treated area after only three EPAT® sessions.
How Does EPAT® Work?
Through the use of a unique set of advanced acoustic pressure waves, EPAT® is proposed to help tissue regeneration and healing process in the body. One of our physicians will use a special wand that will be moved around on the surface of your skin in the painful, affected area. The wand delivers these pressure waves through the site of injury or pain. Tissue regrowth is stimulated by increasing the blood flow and metabolism, which can lead to a faster recovery.
