Extracorporeal Pulse Activation Technology (EPAT®)
Extracorporeal Pulse Activation Technology (EPAT®) is offered at our Florham Park and Berkeley Heights locations, and 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 procedure represents a breakthrough treatment option for a broad range of musculoskeletal conditions. It can treat acute or chronic musculoskeletal pain and/or pain that significantly impairs mobility or quality of life. Areas include:
- Upper extremity
- Lower extremity
- Foot and ankle
- Myofascial trigger points
EPAT® is unique and sought after by many due to the following factors:
- No anesthesia
- No risk of infection
- No scarring
- No downtime
- Over 80% patient satisfaction
- Faster and easier healing

The beneficial effects of 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.
Yes. This FDA cleared technology was developed in Europe and is currently used around the globe. The non-invasive treatment has virtually no risks or side effects. 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.
Treatment sessions take approximately 5-10 minutes depending on the condition being treated. Generally 4-6 treatment sessions are necessary at weekly intervals.
Coupling gel is applied to the specified treatment area by a Total Health Provider to enhance effectiveness. After these preparations, EPAT® pressure waves are released via the applicator which is moved over the area in a circular motion.
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 by a Total Health provider right in our Florham Park or Berkeley Heights office and does not require anesthesia, requires a minimal amount of time, patients can immediately bear weight, and return to normal activity within a few days of the procedure.
