OFAS is proud to announce the new addition of EPAT Shock-wave Therapy . Extracorporeal Pulse Activation Treatment (EPAT) is an FDA approved, non-invasive treatment using pressure waves that stimulate the metabolism, enhance blood circulation and accelerate the healing process.
How does it work?
The concept behind shock-wave therapy is that the shock-wave stimulates and reactivates healing to encourage new blood vessel formation and other elements necessary to advance normal tissue healing.
What is EPAT?
EPAT is a gentle, fast and highly effective treatment without anesthesia, medication or surgical intervention to achieve long lasting effective results. It is performed in the office and generally takes 10-15 minutes. No incisions or scarring, no risk of infection, no down time. After only 3 treatments, patient report immediate relief.
EPAT technologies by Curamedix, which have been used globally to successfully treat a broad range of musculoskeletal conditions, are the result of over 20 years of non-invasive technology experience. Most studies show success rates of 75% and higher.
