EPAT treats the root of your pain non-invasively
There’s a better way. EPAT, sometimes referred to as ESWT or shock wave, is an evidence-based treatment that gets to the root of your pain, facilitating healing and accelerating your recovery. EPAT improves your body’s regenerative potential, rather than further damaging an area that has degenerated because of poor blood flow, tissue injury, overuse or weakness.
In as few as 3 to 5 weekly 7 to 10-minute sessions in your doctor’s office, you’ll be on a faster, easier path to feeling better — and back to the activities you love. No risk. No downtime. No surgery, scarring or anesthesia. And extremely high patient satisfaction — more than 80%!
To further increase the efficacy of EPAT, many physicians will also combine EPAT technology with additional non-invasive solutions like platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy and ultrasound imaging. Be sure to ask your physician about his or her treatment approach.

What are the possible side effects or complications?
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.
What if I have a special health condition?
The safety and effectiveness of the EPAT® procedure has not been determined on people with the following health conditions:
- DVT (Deep Vein Thrombosis)
Your physician will provide you with information about how these and other conditions might affect the determination to perform the EPAT® procedures.
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.
