EPAT

Dr. Duke describes EPAT's effectiveness in treating Achilles tendon injuries.

Extracorporeal Pulse Activated Technology, or EPAT, is a cost-effective way to relieve pain and heal tendons, ligaments and muscle tears without injections or surgery — and Duke Chiropractic is the only full-service rehabilitation facility in Manhattan that offers it.

Using compressed air to generate an acoustic pressure wave within a handheld transmitter, EPAT delivers an impulse that penetrates deep within the tissues todestroy scar tissue and restore elasticity and strength. Duke Chiropractic often integrates EPAT with other soft tissue rehab, such as Active Release Technique and Graston Technique, saving you the hassle of visiting several different doctors.

Dr. Gulrajani explains tennis elbow and shows how EPAT can help heal torn tissue.

WHY EPAT WORKS

EPAT is effective because it:

  • Penetrates deeper than conventional massage, but isn’t painful;
  • Has an analgesic effect;
  • Doesn’t require needles or anesthesia;
  • Creates new blood vessels and vascular support to both nourish and remove the damaged tissue;
  • Stimulates collagen joints and growth factors for muscles, so you heal faster; and
  • Often allows you to keep exercising.
Dr. Duggan shows how EPAT can be used to treat a torn calf muscle.
