PRLog - June 29, 2013 - FLORHAM PARK, N.J. -- The options for the nearly one in four Americans who suffered from musculoskeletal pain were once sorely limited: medication, injections, physical therapy, expensive prosthetic devices and surgery. Now there is the revolutionary EPAT®, a non-invasive technology which stimulates tissue healing and reduces traditional recovery times.

Now offered by Florham Park Chiropractor, Dr. Anthony Rivano, Extracorporeal Pulse Activation Treatment works similarly to the acoustic pressure waves of lithotripsy, which targets and eliminates kidney stones. The pressure waves from EPAT® stimulate a healing response in inflamed or injured soft tissue.
EPAT®, which has been fully endorsed by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, consists of between three and five treatments. Spaced one week apart, each treatment takes about 10 minutes. The speed with which patients have reported relief largely depends on the original state of their inflamed or injured tissue. Patients with mild pain have reported immediate relief, while others have reported full pain relief in between three and 12 weeks.
The conclusion has been unanimous: thanks to EPAT®, patients are finally free of the debilitating soft tissue pain that had diminished the quality of their daily lives. And they no longer have to face the potential for invasive and costlier treatments.
“The most exciting element about this new technology is that it has allowed long-term pain sufferers to finally become pain-free,” Dr. Rivano said. “The results have been remarkable.”
Dr. Rivano, a board-certified chiropractic sports physician, is the only chiropractor in Morris County to offer this treatment to patients suffering from musculoskeletal pain and injuries.
