EPAT Therapy in Cumming, GA
Advanced Treatment For Heel Pain
Forsyth Foot & Ankle Associates is committed to offering our patients high-quality podiatry treatment using the most advanced technologies available. We are proud to offer cutting-edge Extracorporeal Pulse Activation Therapy (EPAT) in Cumming, GA. EPAT is a modern and proven treatment solution to treat your foot or heel pain.
Even if your heel pain is severe, or has been plaguing you for months (or even years), there’s a great chance that EPAT will be able to help you. As an alternative to traditional treatment methods in podiatry including surgery, EPAT improves your healing potential, rather than further damaging an area that has degenerated because of poor blood flow, tissue injury, overuse, or weakness.
What Is EPAT?
Extracorporeal Pulse Activation Technology (EPAT), also called shockwave, is an advanced technology that uses acoustic energy waves to treat a number of podiatry and pain issues. It is FDA-approved to treat muscle, tendon, and ligament disorders.
EPAT is painless, non-invasive, highly effective, and safe. EPAT is often used if other treatments have failed and it only takes about 15 minutes per treatment. When performed by a foot specialist, EPAT treats the root cause of your pain or injury, improves blood flow, and improves your mobility and quality of life.
What Conditions Can Be Treated?
Podiatrists use this revolutionary technology to treat pain in the feet. Common conditions treated at Forsyth Foot & Ankle Associates are heel pain, Achilles tendinitis, arch pain, plantar fasciitis, and many other tendon disorders.
What Are the Benefits of Using EPAT?
The benefits of EPAT shockwave therapy are often experienced after only 3 treatments. Some patients report immediate pain relief after the treatment, although it can take up to 4-8 weeks for pain relief to begin in some cases. The purpose of the procedure is to eliminate pain and restore full mobility. Over 80% of patients treated report to be pain-free and/or have significant pain reduction within 8 weeks.
