All of the doctors at Affiliated Podiatrists are able to perform the new, highly effective, "EPAT” procedure to eliminate heel pain and tendon strain. “EPAT” stands for “Extracorporeal Pulse Activation Technique.” It is an advanced, non-invasive treatment, cleared by the FDA. The technology uses acoustic pressure waves to soften and relax thickened tissue thereby stimulating the metabolism and enhancing blood flow to promote a natural healing process. It’s an effective method of treatment that is now used for conditions such as Plantar Fasciitis and Achilles Tendonitis (to name a few).
Performed in only a few minutes, in our office, and without the need for anesthesia, there are no incisions and no sutures. Recovery is a snap. Furthermore, there’s no need to take time off of work, nor away from activity.
Ask our doctors if you qualify to benefit from this technique.
