What is Pulse Wave Therapy? Pulse Wave Therapy (EPAT) is a non-invasive modern and highly effective treatment method: high-energy sound waves are introduced into the painful areas of the body. Pulse Wave accelerates the healing process in the body by stimulating the metabolism and enhancing blood circulation to regenerate damaged tissue. Strong energy pulses are applied to the affected area. These pulses occur for short periods of time, creating micro-cavitation bubbles that expand and burst. The force created by these bubbles penetrates tissue and stimulates cells in the body that are responsible for bone and connective tissue healing.
How is Pulse Wave performed? Gel is applied to the treatment area; acoustic sound waves (pressure waves) are then released through the applicator as it is moved over the treatment area.
What type of results are expected? Beneficial effects are often experienced after only 1 or 2 treatments and there is no downtime. Many patients report immediate pain relief after treatment. The EPAT Technology has a 91% success rate as per clinical studies, and patients treated report being pain free and /or have a significant reduction in pain. This non-surgical therapy for pain eliminates pain and restores mobility, thus improving the patient’s quality of life.
What are the possible side effects? Treatment with EPAT Therapy has virtually no side effects. In some cases, patients may experience minor discomfort for a few days. Patients can return to work after treatments and in most all cases there is no down time.
