Regenerative Medicine

Advanced Solutions to Resolve Your Pain

Extracorporeal Pulse Activation Technology (EPAT) is the most advanced noninvasive technology platform, utilizing acoustic energy based on unique sets of acoustic pressure waves designed for a broad range of podiatric and pain management uses and applications.

Patients like you who suffer from acute and chronic musculoskeletal pain now have access to innovative, noninvasive treatments. EPAT and EMTT are forms of regenerative medicine in King of Prussia, PA, and the Wayne, PA, area that are modern and proven treatment solutions.

What Is EPAT?

Extracorporeal Pulse Activation Technology (EPAT) is the most advanced and highly effective noninvasive 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 noninvasive, office-based procedure represents a breakthrough treatment option for a broad range of musculoskeletal conditions.

EPAT is used as an alternative to traditional treatment methods in podiatry, including surgery. It improves the regenerative potential, rather than further damaging an area that has degenerated because of poor blood flow, tissue injury, overuse, or weakness.

When performed by a qualified healthcare professional, EPAT treats the root cause of your pain or injury, improves blood flow, thus improving your mobility and quality of life with minimal risks or side effects.

What Are the Expected Results?

The beneficial effects of EPAT are often experienced after only three treatments. Some patients report immediate pain relief after the treatment, although it can take up to four 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 being pain-free and/or have significant pain reduction.

Why Consider Non-Invasive EPAT?

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 performed in our podiatry offices does not require anesthesia and requires a minimal amount of time. Patients can also bear weight (i.e. walk) immediately and can return to work or normal activities within 24-48 hours and can resume strenuous activities after four weeks.

What Are the Benefits of EPAT?

  • Evidence-based
  • Noninvasive
  • No anesthesia
  • No risk of infection
  • No scarring
  • No downtime
  • Over 80% patient satisfaction
  • Faster, easier healing

What Is EMTT?

Extracorporeal Magnetotransduction Therapy (EMTT), is a form of magnetic therapy that assists in the regeneration and rehabilitation of musculoskeletal conditions. EMTT is noninvasive and uses high-energy electromagnetic radiation to resolve issues in less time and with little to no pain or downtime. EMTT uses high oscillation frequency which allows for deeper penetration and superior tissue healing. Treatment is usually quick, requiring only five to 20 minutes per session, depending on the severity of your condition. Dr. Wawrzynek may recommend multiple sessions to achieve the desired results.

What Issues Can EMTT Help With?

  • Sports injuries
  • Muscle spasms
  • Degenerative joint diseases
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Chronic pain
  • Post-surgical muscle stimulation
  • Herniated discs
  • Improving range of motion
  • Temporary relief of sore muscles

Benefits of EMTT

  • Noninvasive treatment performed in-office
  • Effective for a variety of conditions
  • Little to no side effects or downtime
  • Short treatment sessions
  • Effectiveness increases when used in conjunction with EPAT
