How does EPAT work?

 

EPAT uses acoustic pressure waves that are delivered through the body
and focused on the site of pain/injury with a special applicator. These
pressure waves stimulate the metabolism, enhance blood circulation and
accelerate the healing process. EPAT has a proven track record of
effectiveness equal to or better than traditional conservative and
surgical treatment options.

treatments.  Some patients report immediate pain relief after the
treatment,although it can take up to 4 weeks for pain relief to begin.
