WHAT TO EXPECT
How is EPAT® Performed?
Treatment is performed in the exam room, with no anesthesia required. After determining the specific areas of pain, the provider will use a handpiece which transmits acoustic energy to perform a series of 3 different treatments of varying pressures over the affected area. Based on your response, the treatment intensity will be gradually titrated up into the therapeutic range.
Duration of Treatment
Treatment consists of a minimum of three sessions, 5-7 days apart. Your first session takes approximately 15 minutes, and subsequent sessions last approximately 10 minutes. Over half of patients require a 4th and 5th treatment. The longer a patient has been suffering from pain, the more treatments that may be needed.
