EPAT Shockwave Therapy

If you are plagued with pain in your feet that has not gotten better with standard treatments in the past, such as cortisone injections or physical therapy, this may be the solution for you!

We are proud to announce our newest service, the EPAT. Here at DM Foot & Ankle Associates, we continually strive to improve our patient care by investing in advanced medical equipment.

EPAT stands for Extracorporeal Pulse Activation Technology. It is an innovative, non-invasive way to treat pain.

What is the EPAT used to treat?

  • Plantar fasciitis (heel pain)
  • Achilles tendinitis
  • Tendinitis in the foot or ankle
  • Any ligament/tendon pain or injury
  • Joint inflammation
  • Neuroma pain

Benefits of EPAT:

How does it work?

EPAT uses pressure waves that stimulate the metabolism, enhance blood circulation, and accelerate the healing process. Damaged tissue gradually regenerates and eventually heals. Treatment sessions will take about 5-10 minutes depending on the area that is being treated. Treatments are performed at our office and do not require anesthesia.

Most patients will require between 3 to 5 sessions.

Some patients report immediate pain relief after the first treatment. Maximal effects can take about 4 weeks or longer. Over 80% of patients treated report to be pain free and/or have a significant reduction in pain.

Is it safe?

EPAT is technology that has been cleared by the FDA and is currently being used around the world. Extensive clinical studies and tests have confirmed both its safety and efficacy. The EPAT treatment comes with virtually no risks or side effects.

Why consider EPAT?

The success rate of EPAT is equal to or greater than traditional treatment methods, including surgery. This treatment option leaves out the risks, complications and lengthy recover time of surgery.
