Improving Patient Care With EPAT
Imagine Waking Up Pain Free
Extracorporeal Pulse Activation Technology (EPAT), sometimes referred to as ESWT or Shockwave Therapy, is clinically proven and today’s most advanced, non-invasive technology for treating pain.
In as few as 3 weekly 5 to 10 minute sessions in your doctor’s office, you’ll be able to return to your favorite sport or activity, and there’s no downtime.

“I’ve been dealing with upper back pain for years, the result of a shoulder injury I got playing football in high school. I’ve tried everything from stretching, rehab, medications and deep tissues messages through-out the years. I figured I would give AcuteWave a shot. I’m happy I did though, because I can’t remember the last time I’ve went even a few days without pain. It’s definitely helped relieve the pain and I don’t feel as stiff in the mornings either. If you’re in pain, give this a shot, truly does work.”
“I had been suffering with carpal tunnel for years. I had been told by my doctors that surgery was my only option. I was glad to find AcuteWave and the doctors at Alpha Wave Health Centers. After the 1st treatment, I notice a dramatic improvement. The stiffness and pain was almost completely gone.”
“For almost 10 years I’ve had mid back pain when walking distances. Chiropractors, massages, shoe inserts were always just temporary relief for a few days at most. I made a choice and went to AcuteWave to have a session of treatments performed on my mid-back. It’s been a month and I can walk farther and harder than ever before, 7 miles the other day and I didn’t even have to bend down to stretch my back whereas before the treatment I would have to every 30 mins at least. I’m hugely impressed!”
What is EPAT?
Extracorporeal Pulse Activation Technology (EPAT®) is the most advanced and highly effective non-invasive treatment method cleared by the FDA. This proprietary technology is based on a unique set of pressure waves that stimulate the metabolism, enhance blood circulation and accelerate the healing process. Damaged tissue gradually regenerates and eventually heals. This non-invasive office/clinic based procedure represents a breakthrough treatment option for a broad range of musculoskeletal conditions.
What Disorders Can Be Treated?
Generally, acute or chronic musculoskeletal pain and/or pain that significantly impairs mobility or quality of life. Areas include:
Back & Chest
Foot & Ankle
Myofascial Trigger Points
What are the expected results?
The beneficial effects of Extracorporeal Pulse Activation Technology (EPAT®) are often experienced after only 3 treatments. Some patients report immediate pain relief after the treatment, although it can take up to 4 weeks for pain relief to begin. The procedure eliminates pain and restores full mobility, thus improving your quality of life. Over 80% of patients treated report to be pain free and/or have significant pain reduction.
Is it safe?
Yes. This FDA cleared technology was developed in Europe and is currently used around the globe. A wealth of medical experience, state-of-the-art engineering, and optimal quality have been built into each EPAT® device; and extensive clinical studies and tests have confirmed its safety and efficacy. If performed by a qualified caregiver, Extracorporeal Pulse Activation Technology (EPAT®) has virtually no risks or side effects.
How is the treatment performed?
Coupling gel is applied to the specified treatment area to enhance effectiveness. After these preparations, EPAT® pressure waves are released via the applicator which is moved over the area in a circular motion.
Why consider non-invasive EPAT®?
EPAT® has a proven success rate that is equal to or greater than that of traditional treatment methods (including surgery) and without the risks, complications and lengthy recovery time. EPAT® is performed in your physician’s office/clinic, does not require anesthesia, requires a minimal amount of time, patients can immediately bear weight (i.e. walk), and return to normal activity within a few days of the procedure.
