EPAT® in Southeastern Pennsylvania

Stimulate Healing with Extracorporeal Pulse Activated Technology

Extracorporeal Pulse Activated Technology®, or EPAT®, is an FDA approved, non-invasive treatment for acute and chronic musculoskeletal pain. It is an exceptional advance in medical science. EPAT® uses distinctive sets of pressure waves to stimulate both biologic and angiogenic reactions that promote blood circulation in the targeted area. This accelerates natural healing in the body.

To determine if EPAT® is right for you, you will need to talk to one of our Southeastern Pennsylvania podiatrists. Our highly-qualified staff and experienced doctors are ready to assist. Give us a call to learn more about our various foot and ankle treatments.

Dial (215) 392-4009 to talk with our friendly staff at the Bux-Mont Foot & Ankle Care Centers in Warminster or Newtown.

How It Works

At your EPAT® procedure, we will use acoustic pressure waves to help regenerate tissue in your body and make microcirculatory improvements. These waves can also create new vascularization, and encourage the body to heal itself naturally.

For this therapy, the patient rests in a comfortable chair with his or her ankle on a large rubber, fluid-filled dome. While anesthesia is not always required, we may administer a local anesthetic for comfort. Once we have determined a specific area to target, we will set the equipment to pulsate and penetrate at a predetermined speed and intensity. You will hear a clicking sound as the technology works to rapidly to force your body to lay down new tendon fibers.
