For those who suffer from acute and chronic musculoskeletal pain, EPAT in Macedonia, GA, is a modern and proven treatment solution.
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, non-invasive, highly effective, and safe. EPAT is generally used when conservative treatment methods have been ineffective 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?
EPAT is effective in treating heel pain, Achilles tendinitis, arch pain, plantar fasciitis, and many other tendon disorders.
Benefits of EPAT
