“The most important thing about EPAT is that it heals people when other treatments haven’t worked and helps them avoid surgery. With EPAT, we get our patients better faster so they don’t have to sit out.”
When it comes to treating his patients with acute or chronic pain, Dr. Richard T. Braver, Director of Active Foot & Ankle Care relies on a variety of different methods including rest, icing, anti-inflammatory medications, injections, bandaging or strapping, stretching, and therapeutic modalities. He has found these methods often alleviate the painful symptoms, but not always. And the underlying cause of the problem goes unaddressed. As a result, upon return to activity, the patient’s pain and disability comes back. As a Board Certified Foot and Ankle Surgeon, Dr. Braver was looking for a way to enhance his patients’ surgical recovery time period. Dedicated to providing exceptional care for his patients that gets them back to being active and pain-free, Dr. Braver wanted to integrate a new technology into his practice that would improve patient outcomes and increase patient satisfaction.
“The most important think about EPAT is that it heals people when other treatments haven’t worked and helps them avoid surgery. We often see patients who come to us after others have simply given up on them. With the EPAT device, we get people better faster.
This technology has helped us get our patients better faster so they don’t have to sit out. IN fact, we’ve found that 80% of our EPAT patients experience instantaneous relief after the first treatment and 90% success after 3 treatments, most often within 6 weeks of care.”
