What is Shockwave Therapy
Extracorporeal Pulse Activation Technology (EPAT®) is the most advanced and highly effective non-invasive treatment for heel pain cleared by the FDA. The technology is based on a unique set of pressure waves that stimulate the metabolism, enhance blood circulation and accelerate the healing process. Any damaged tissue gradually regenerates and eventually heals.
What Conditions Can Be Treated?
Generally speaking, any acute or chronic musculoskeletal pain and/or pain that significantly impairs mobility or quality of life. As Clearwater podiatrists, we use shockwave therapy to treat foot or ankle pain only.
Why Consider Non-Invasive EPAT®?
EPAT® has a proven success rate that is as good (if not better) than any traditional treatment method (including surgery) and without all of the risks, complications and lengthy recovery time. EPAT® is performed right in our Clearwater foot clinic, doesn’t require anesthesia, requires a minimal amount of time, and patients can walk and return to normal daily activities within a few days of the procedure.
Benefits of EPAT®
- No Anesthesia
- No Risk of Infection
- No Scarring
- No Downtime
- Over 80% Treatment Success
- Faster, Easier Healing
