EPAT used to be reserved for breaking up kidney stones, but now this age-old therapy is beginning to emerge as a much more valuable tool in treating pain, improving blood flow, and offering regeneration in certain conditions.
EPAT Therapy known as Extracorporeal Pulse Activation Technology is a form of Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy, a proven treatment for acute and chronic musculoskeletal conditions.
How Does EPAT Therapy Work?
Using acoustic waves, EPAT therapy creates what’s called microtrauma, which triggers your body into a wave of healing responses. Blood flow and metabolism increase, cytokines and chemokines are released and all of these factors come together to begin resolving the pain and injury.
Who Can Benefit from it?
If you suffer from chronic pain or have recently suffered an acute injury, EPAT should be one of your first lines of defense. The treatment is also useful in conjunction with regenerative medicine or stem cell therapy as a means of increasing its effectiveness even further.
What Conditions Can it Treat?
EPAT is highly effective at creating new blood vessel formation, initiating the reversal of chronic inflammation, stimulating collagen production, dissolving calcified fibroblasts, dispersing of pain mediators, and releasing of trigger points.
Which makes it an effective treatment for an almost endless list of conditions, some of which include
- Plantar Fasciitis
- Golfer’s Elbow/Tennis Elbow
- Achilles Tendonitis
- Frozen Shoulder
- Posterior Tibial Tendonitis
- Heel Spurs & Calcifications
- Anterior Tibial Tendonitis
- Plantar Plate Injuries
- Hip Pain
- Peroneal Tendonitis
- Interdigital Neuromas
