EPAT in Virginia

How Does Extracoporeal Pulse Activation Work?

  • EPAT is sometimes referred to as ESWT or shock wave therapy.  Some people know that shock wave therapy is also used to break up kidney stones.

  • The shock waves are tuned to target the damaged tissue “fascia” along the sole of the foot while harmlessly pass through the superficial tissue

  • Similar to how it is used to break up kidney stones, the shock waves break up the scar tissue and improves local circulation and blood flow of the inflamed and damaged tissue.
