EPAT Shockwave Therapy

What is EPAT Shockwave Therapy?

EPAT therapy is a highly effective orthopedic treatment method in which  high-energy soundwaves are introduced into the painful areas of joints, bones and/or muscles. It is one of the most advanced and highly effective non-invasive treatment methods cleared by the FDA. The treatment works by restarting the inflammatory process in damaged tissues to  enhance blood circulation and therefor regenerate the damaged tissues.

EPAT also known as Shockwave and/or Pressure Wave Therapy. Areas of treatment include acute and chronic pain in the knee,  foot and heel , ankle , hamstring, shoulder , elbow, wrist and hand pain.  It is also used to address sports injuries and many other joint painful conditions.


At the Callard Clinic we focus primarily on relieving pain in the knees, shoulders, hips and feet. Typical treatment plans range between 3 and 5 sessions. Beneficial effects are often experienced after only 1 or 2 treatments and there is no downtime. EPAT is non-surgical therapy for  pain and also restores damaged tendons and ligaments to increase mobility and thus quickly improving patients’ quality of life.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is EPAT Shockwave Therapy?
EPAT is a non-invasive modern and highly effective treatment method: high-energy sound waves are introduced into the painful areas of the body. Pressure wave technology accelerates the healing process in the body by stimulating the metabolism and enhancing blood circulation to regenerate damaged tissue. Strong energy pulses are applied to the affected area. These pulses occur for short periods of time, creating micro-cavitation bubbles that expand and burst. The force created by these bubbles penetrates tissue and stimulates cells in the body that are responsible for bone and connective tissue healing.

EPAT treatment can successfully address acute and chronic pain such as: Knee Pain, Heel Pain , Foot Pain, Ankle Pain, Hamstring Pain, Back Pain, Neck Pain, Shoulder Pain , Elbow Pain, Wrist Pain and Hand Pain and much more.

I have seen countless specialists over the years along with test after test all to come up empty handed. I originally was only going to see him for chiropractic services in hopes that would alleviate my discomfort to some degree, and it certainly helped short term but in our visits it lead to a bigger conversation, one that he initiated instead of me pleading for someone to listen. I am a skeptic by nature, but at this point in time I was willing to try anything and that's when he proposed I try Nutrition Response Testing. I don't know what type of witch craft he performed on me, but he got me set up on a plan to essential reboot my broken systems (I won't bore you with findings), which included supplements to take and recurring visits to see what improvements have been made and how to keep progressing. By week six, I started to regain my energy levels, I started to get better quality sleep, I've lost the muscle fatigue, the pain in my joints is much more manageable, I've got a better appetite and my weight has been maintained better, and overall just feel BETTER.
