EPAT Therapy Near Dawsonville, GA
Advanced Treatment for Heel Pain
Forsyth Foot & Ankle Associates is committed to offering our patients personalized care using the most advanced technologies available. We are proud to offer cutting-edge Extracorporeal Pulse Activation Therapy (EPAT) near Dawsonville, GA. EPAT is a modern and proven treatment solution to treat your foot or heel pain.
EPAT can be effective on 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 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, 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?
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.
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 to be pain-free and/or have significant pain reduction within eight weeks.
