EPAT® (Extracorporeal Pulse Activation Treatment)

For Musculoskeletal Pain / Acute and Chronic Sports Injuries

Dr. Levesque is the first Healthcare Facility in Westwood, NJ offering the most advanced and highly effective non-invasive treatment method of sports injuries / musculoskeletal pain approved by the Food and Drug Administration.

EPAT deviceNearly one-in-four Americans suffer from musculoskeletal pain.  The EPAT® device promotes healing without surgery for musculoskeletal disorders involving soft tissue, tendon & muscle. 

The most exciting aspect about this new technology is that it provides an alternative treatment option to traditional treatment methods including surgery. Extracorporeal Pulse Activation Treatment increases healing rates, reduces recovery time. Moreover, healthcare expenditures and related out-of-pocket costs to patients are significantly reduced.  EPAT allows physicians to treat a variety of traditionally difficult soft tissue injuries with a new method that promotes tissue healing on its own and has no significant side effects.  EPAT is the standard of care for 47 professional sports teams.

Traditional treatment methods for acute & chronic sports injuries include: medication, injections, physical therapy, orthotics, expensive prosthetic devices, rest and invasive and costly surgery.  The D-Actor®, distributed in the U.S. by CuraMedix, uses a unique and proprietary set of acoustic pressure waves similar to that of lithotripsy used successfully in the past decade to treat kidney stones.  The EPAT® pressure waves stimulate a healing response in inflamed or injured soft tissue.

EPAT® generally consists of 3 treatments spaced 1 week apart and takes 5-10 minutes, without the need of anesthesia.  Patients may experience immediate relief from pain; however, healing of inflamed or injured tissue may take up to twelve weeks depending on the condition.
