EPAT Treatment Q & A

What is the EPAT treatment?

EPAT®, or extracorporeal pulse activation technology, is the most highly effective and advanced treatment method designed to stimulate your metabolism, accelerate the healing process, and enhance blood circulation through specific pressure waves.

EPAT is a quick in-office procedure that’s effective for a broad range of musculoskeletal conditions and allows damaged tissue to regenerate and heal over time.

What can the EPAT system treat?

Acute or chronic musculoskeletal pain and impaired mobility are treatable with EPAT, including medical conditions, such as:

  • Achilles pain
  • Trigger points
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Chronic heel pain
  • Morton’s neuroma
  • Tendon and tendon insertion pain

How does EPAT work?

First, Dr. Lehrich applies a coupling gel to the treatment area to enhance the effectiveness of the pressure waves.

Next, Dr. Lehrich gently applies the applicator to the treatment area and moves it slowly across your skin in a circular motion to deliver precise, controlled pressure waves deep into the targeted tissue.

The sensation is well-tolerable and painless. In some cases, patients might experience some minor discomfort for a few days (no more than post-workout residual pain).

What are the benefits of the EPAT treatment?

The EPAT system offers an array of benefits, including:

  • No scarring
  • Faster healing
  • No anesthesia
  • No risk of infection
  • High efficiency and patient-satisfaction rate
  • No downtime – you can return to your daily activities immediately following your treatment

EPAT is non-invasive, virtually risk-free, and each session only takes around 5 to 10 minutes, depending on the disorder being treated. Each treatment is typically spaced about one week apart.

The EPAT system usually provides impressive pain-relieving results in as little as three treatments. Pain relief is noticeable immediately, but in some cases require up to four weeks for pain relief to begin.

EPAT can improve quality of life for men and women dealing with various conditions. It’s entirely safe and FDA-approved. This innovative system was developed in Europe and is backed by clinical studies and tests, a wealth of medical experience, and state-of-the-art engineering.

As technology advances, so do the options for pain relief and enhanced functioning. If you’re seeking effective, safe, non-surgical, and non-pharmaceutical podiatry treatment options, Dr. Lehrich provides the EPAT system. Discover EPAT and call or click to schedule online.
