Somerset Family Physical Therapy is proud to now offer extracorporeal pulse activation treatment, EPAT. We have EPAT trained Physical Therapists, on site to deliver treatment. EPAT is FDA approved and safe for use with most patients.
We understand that chronic pain can interfere with daily activities. EPAT has been shown, through neovascularization, to accelerate healing of tendinous and ligamentous structures. This is accomplished through micro-ruptures in the connective tissue caused by shockwaves that increase local growth factors.
Most patients require 3-5 treatments for the full benefit however; many feel a vast improvement after one session. A treatment session typically lasts 15-30 minutes, depending on the condition being treated.
