EPAT Therapy in Canton, GA
Advanced Treatment for Heel Pain
Patients, like you, who suffer from acute and chronic musculoskeletal pain now have access to innovative, non-invasive treatments. Forsyth Foot & Ankle Associates offers cutting-edge Extracorporeal Pulse Activation Therapy (EPAT) in Canton, GA. EPAT is a modern and proven treatment solution to treat your foot or heel pain.
EPAT is effective for mild and severe heel pain cases. As an alternative to traditional treatment methods in podiatry, 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 commonly called shockwave, is a state-of-the-art technology that uses acoustic energy waves to treat a number of foot conditions. It is FDA-approved to treat muscle, tendon, and ligament disorders.
EPAT is painless, noninvasive, 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 an expert, 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 With EPAT?
Conditions commonly treated with EPAT include heel pain, Achilles tendinitis, arch pain, plantar fasciitis, and many other tendon disorders.
Benefits of EPAT
The benefits of EPAT shockwave therapy are often experienced after only a few treatments. Some patients report immediate pain relief after the first treatment, although it can take up to four to eight 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 being pain-free and/or having significant pain reduction within eight weeks.
