New advancements in technology have brought about innovative treatment options that can significantly improve patient outcomes. One such groundbreaking development is our new EPAT (Extracorporeal Pulse Activation Technology) system.
This non-invasive therapy has gained popularity in recent years due to its effectiveness in treating a wide range of musculoskeletal conditions. So popular in fact, that we have decided to invest further into our patients health by providing this additional option for you.
EPAT is proven to help a variety of conditions and disorders of the musculoskeletal system, both acute and chronic. There is an ever growing field of evidence and use applications not only in the field of Orthopedics, but also Aesthetics, Urology, Cardiology, Dermatology, Neurology and Veterinary Medicine.
We are so excited to share this new product with you and can't wait to show you how life-changing it can be!In this blog post, we will explore the EPAT system, its mechanism of action, its applications in physical therapy, and its benefits for patients.
What is EPAT System?
The EPAT system utilizes high-energy acoustic waves to stimulate the body's natural healing processes. These acoustic waves are generated by a handheld device and delivered to the targeted area through a specialized applicator. The waves penetrate deep into the tissues, promoting increased blood circulation, tissue regeneration, and pain reduction. Unlike surgical interventions, EPAT is non-invasive and can be performed in an outpatient setting. It is proven to have around 90% success rate on almost basically any type of strain, sprain, ache, pain, or dysfunction involving the musculoskeletal system.
How do we use it at Arise Physical Therapy?
EPAT therapy has shown remarkable results in treating various musculoskeletal conditions. It is commonly used to address conditions such as plantar fasciitis, achilles tendonitis, tennis elbow, rotator cuff tendinopathy, and patellar tendinopathy. Additionally, EPAT has been found to be effective in alleviating pain associated with trigger points and myofascial disorders.
How do our patients benefit? 1) Non-invasive Treatment Option: EPAT therapy eliminates the need for surgical procedures, reducing the associated risks, downtime, and potential complications. Patients can avoid the lengthy recovery periods and return to their daily activities more quickly.
2) Pain Reduction: The acoustic waves delivered through EPAT stimulate the release of endorphins, which are natural pain-relieving substances. This leads to a significant reduction in pain levels, allowing patients to experience improved mobility and functionality.
3) Enhanced Healing: EPAT promotes tissue regeneration by increasing the blood supply to the affected area. This accelerated healing process can lead to faster recovery and improved overall outcomes for patients.
4) Minimal Side Effects: EPAT is a safe and well-tolerated therapy with minimal side effects. Patients may experience mild discomfort during the treatment, but this is usually temporary and subsides quickly.
What Should You Expect During an EPAT Session?
EPAT therapy typically involves a series of sessions, depending on the condition being treated. During each session, the therapist will apply the handheld device to the targeted area and deliver the acoustic waves. The treatment duration can vary but is usually completed within 20-30 minutes. Patients may experience mild discomfort or tingling sensations during the session, but the intensity can be adjusted to ensure comfort.
Is EPAT Right for You? EPAT therapy is suitable for individuals who have not responded well to conservative treatments such as physical therapy, medication, or rest. In our clinic, we have seen severe plantar fasciitis injuries get better and allow return to high level activity within 2-3 weeks from what otherwise should have been a 5-6 week recovery time and rehab process.
Not only have we seen improvements with faster reductions of pain (in some cases an immediate resolution of pain), but also accelerated strength gains, allowing us to better target and treat weak areas to accelerate your full recovery and get stronger-faster!
