Chronic pain can be a crippling experience, affecting every facet of your life. Traditional methods often involve invasive surgeries and medications that come with their own set of complications and side effects.
However, Extracorporeal Pulse Activation Technology (EPAT), offered at Orthopedic Associates of Long Island (OALI), represents a new approach to the problem. Also known as shockwave therapy, it’s a state-of-the-art, non-invasive solution for those suffering from acute and chronic musculoskeletal pain.
What is EPAT?
EPAT is an FDA-cleared, non-invasive treatment. This shockwave therapy relies on acoustic energy in the form of pressure waves to stimulate the body’s natural processes of recovery.
Unlike other treatments that address just the symptoms, EPAT targets the root causes of many kinds of pain. It improves blood flow and stimulates cellular metabolism, which speeds up the restoration of damaged tissue. This advanced technology is a breakthrough in treating a wide range of musculoskeletal conditions. And it does so without causing any more damage to already delicate areas.
Expected Results and Safety
After undergoing EPAT, most patients report experiencing benefits after just three treatment sessions. Some may even feel immediate relief, although, for others, it could take up to four weeks for the pain relief to manifest.
More than 80 percent of patients say they feel pain-free or have experienced a significant reduction in pain. It has helped them regain mobility and improve their quality of life. In terms of safety, EPAT is a trusted technology developed in Europe and is now used globally. With essentially no risks or side effects, it’s a secure treatment option, especially when administered by qualified healthcare professionals at OALI.
Duration and Treatment Plan
One of the biggest advantages of EPAT is the convenience it offers patients. Each treatment session typically lasts only five to 10 minutes, depending on the specific condition it’s treating. Generally, a course of three to five treatment sessions at weekly intervals is recommended for getting the best results.
