Shockwave Therapy Q & A
What is EPAT Shockwave Therapy?
Extracorporeal Pulse Activation Technology (EPAT) Shockwave therapy is a revolutionary, non-surgical treatment approach for acute and chronic musculoskeletal issues. Approved by the FDA, this specialized therapy has offered lasting relief to millions of patients around the globe who experience little to no pain after completing EPAT shockwave therapy treatment. Used to address a wide range of joint, muscle, and tendon problems, this non-invasive treatment can help alleviate pain or discomfort in hard-to-treat injuries when other options fail.
What conditions are treated with EPAT: Shockwave Therapy?
EPAT shockwave therapy is a terrific treatment option that delivers an array of benefits to patients, including the fact that there is no scarring, no required downtime after treatment, no risk of infection, faster recovery, and greater than 80% patient satisfaction.
This treatment has been used to help with a variety of issues, such as:
- Plantar fasciitis
- Achilles tendonitis
- Non-unions of bone
If you have had difficulty finding long-lasting relief from a joint, muscle, or tendon injuries, EPAT shockwave therapy may be the appropriate choice for you.
What can I expect during treatment?
The advanced technology involved with EPAT shockwave therapy allows your podiatrist to direct low-frequency sound waves to the site of the injury in order to stimulate the metabolic process, increase blood flow, and active the body’s natural healing properties. In as little as 15 minutes in your doctor’s office, you can accelerate healing to the injury and start the process of regenerating cells. At least four separate sessions may be required for optimal results.
If EPAT shockwave therapy sounds like a treatment option that can alleviate the pain and limited mobility caused by your musculoskeletal injury, call our office for an appointment to discuss this approach with the podiatrist.
