EPAT is a non-invasive treatment for many types of tendon and ligament conditions. Because it is non-invasive, there is no need for injections/needles/incisions. Therefore most people tolerate EPAT treatments very well. Because the technology uses pulses of energy, some people will describe a feeling of discomfort from the energy as it leaves the probe. People have described this as a repetitive tapping feeling. Because 3 treatments are recommended, people tend to tolerate each successive treatment more easily because they have gotten used to the feeling! There are a number of people who have been dealing with plantar fasciitis (as an example) for a long time, and have undergone cortisone injections. These people agree that they would take EPAT over an injection any day!
