EPAT (Shockwave)

Extracorporeal Pulse Activation Technology (EPAT®), also known as Shockwave, is a highly effective, non-invasive treatment method that accelerates the healing of injured body tissues. It uses a unique set of pressure waves focused at the injury site to stimulate the metabolism, enhance blood circulation and accelerate the healing process. Damaged tissue gradually regenerates and eventually heals.

In the video below, Matt Johnson, PT, DPT, OCS, describes the functionality and benefits of EPAT®.
EPAT® can be used to treat acute or chronic muscle, tendon, or soft tissue pain that significantly impairs mobility or quality of life including:
  • Foot and Ankle
  • Neck
  • Shoulder
  • Back and Chest
  • Upper Extremity
  • Lower Extremity
  • Myofascial Trigger Points

The Benefits of EPAT®
