What is EPAT?

EPAT (Extracorporeal Pulse Activation Technology) is a pulse-activation technology that has been approved by the FDA. This proprietary technology is based on a unique set of pressure waves that stimulates metabolism, enhances blood circulation and accelerates the healing process. Damaged tissue gradually regenerates and eventually heals. This non-invasive office based procedure represents a breakthrough treatment option for a broad range of musculoskeletal conditions.

Is It Safe? Any Side Effects?

epat.dr.johnsonsmYes, EPAT is safe. The FDA cleared technology was developed in Europe and is currently used around the globe. A wealth of medical experience, state-of-the-art engineering and optimal quality have been built into each EPAT device and extensive clinical studies and tests have confirmed its safety and efficiency. If performed by a qualified caregiver, EPAT treatment has virtually no risk or side effects. You will receive post-treatment instructions from your physician to continue recovery.

Why Consider Non-Invasive EPAT?

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. EPAT is performed in the office and does not require anesthesia, requires only a minimal amount of time and patients can be weight-bearing immediately and return to normal activity within a few days of the procedure.

Benefits include:

  • Faster healing
  • No anesthesia
  • No risk of infection
  • No scarring
  • No downtime
  • Over 80% patient satisfaction

What Are the Expected Results?

epat.dr.conchasmThe beneficial effects of EPAT are often experienced after only 3 treatments. Some patients report immediate pain relief after the treatment, although it can take up to four weeks for pain relief to begin. The procedure eliminates pain and restores mobility, thus improving your quality of life. Over 80% of patients treated report to be pain-free and/or have significant pain reduction. Treatments sessions take approximately 5-10 minutes, depending on the disorder that is being treated. Treatments are scheduled with one treatment per week and a total of three to five treatments per patient to achieve maximum effectiveness.

Does Insurance Cover the Procedure? How Much Does it Cost?

Insurance does not cover the EPAT treatment. The cost is $400.00 and includes one treatment per week for a total of three treatments. (Note: While most patients need only three treatments, a fourth or fifth treatment will be provided as is deemed medically necessary by the physician). Documentation of treatment will be available through our secure patient portal for all patients who wish to pay with their Health Savings Account. Most patients need 3 to 5 treatments for maximum effectiveness.
