Having heel pain, Achilles tendinitis, or other common foot problems can often slow you down. There are many treatments that are effective in taking care of these aches and pains such as orthotics, physical therapy, stretching, and even cortisone injections. However, when other treatments fail to get you back on your feet there is EPAT (Extracorporeal Pulse Activation Therapy). EPAT is the most advanced and highly effective non-invasive treatment method approved by the FDA. It is performed in our office in as little as 15 minutes and generally 3 treatments are necessary at weekly intervals. The benefits include returning to your work/normal routine within 24-48 hours after the procedure, cost effective, patients are immediately fully weight bearing, and bilateral patients can be treated at the same time. The expected results are often experienced after only 3 treatments but may take up to four weeks for pain relief to begin.
