What does EPAT treat?

What is EPAT?

Extracorporeal Pulse Activation Technology (EPAT®) is the most advanced and highly effective non-invasive treatment method cleared by the FDA. Pressure wave technology accelerates the healing process in the body by stimulating the metabolism and enhancing blood circulation to regenerate damaged tissue. Strong energy pulses are applied to the affected area. These pulses occur for short periods of time, creating micro-cavitation bubbles that expand and burst. The force created by these bubbles penetrates tissue and stimulates cells in the body that are responsible for bone and connective tissue healing. In many instances, pressure wave technology is most effective in cases where the human body has not been able to heal itself on its own.

What is the duration of the treatment and how many treatments will I need?

Beneficial effects can often be experienced after only 2 or 3 treatments and there is virtually no downtime. The non-surgical therapy for pain eliminates pain and restores mobility, thus quickly improving patients’ quality of life. Other benefits include the following:

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.

Is it covered by Insurance?

Insurance typically does not cover the EPAT® procedure however the out of pocket costs are much less than you would expect. Your podiatric physician can provide a personalized pricing program and most patients can use their “Flexible Payment Medical Savings Account” to cover these out of pocket expenses with pre tax dollars.
