EPAT (Extracorporeal Pulse Activation Technology)

Animated video explaining how EPAT or Shockwave Therapy works and the benefits of EPAT.

Regenerative Treatment – EPAT

Extracorporeal pulse activated technology also known as EPAT, or shockwave therapy is an effective, non-invasive treatment option for chronic Achilles tendinitis and plantar fasciitis.

How EPAT Works:

Research has shown that shockwaves are an effective treatment for reversing inflammation, which addresses the root cause of both plantar fasciitis and Achilles tendinitis. Additionally, EPAT can help with:

  • Tendon and/or tendon insertion pain
  • Neuromas
  • Trigger points

EPAT is basically regenerative medicine, It uses shock waves to help the injured tissue to regenerate. EPAT has virtually no side effects — some people may experience minor pain for a few days following treatment, but EPAT provides long-lasting pain relief. If you want to do more than simply treat the symptoms of your heel pain, or have had limited success with other treatments, let us show you the restorative effects of shockwave therapy!

Benefits of EPAT:

  • Evident results within 3 treatments.
  • Does not require anesthesia
  • No scarring
  • No downtime
  • Over 80% patient satisfaction
  • No risk of infection
  • Fast, easy healing
  • Works around your daily schedule and activities

During your consultation, our podiatrist will use our advanced, in-office ultrasound technology to detect and diagnose the type of inflammation causing your heel pain. We will then provide a specialized treatment plan for you and determine if you are a good candidate for EPAT therapy.
