Are you living with chronic pain in a muscle or tendon that will not go away? The severe pain associated with conditions such as chronic tendinitis and plantar fasciitis can affect your daily life. North Texas Foot & Ankle offers Extracorporeal Pulse Activation Technology (EPAT) Shockwave Therapy, a breakthrough treatment that uses a wave of pressure transmitted to the source of pain to improve circulation and promote the natural healing process.
EPAT Shockwave Therapy, also known as ESWT, is an incredibly advanced and highly effective non-invasive treatment approved by the FDA. Because EPAT is non-invasive, there are virtually no risks or side effects. The healing effects of EPAT are commonly experienced after only 3 treatments. While some patients find immediate pain relief after the treatment, it can take up to 6-8 weeks to get maximum benefit. In addition to eliminating pain, EPAT Shockwave Therapy restores full mobility, which can help improve a patient’s quality of life. The treatment is a great option for diabetics or other individuals who are at high risk or just want to avoid surgery.
Treatment sessions last approximately 5-10 minutes, based on the type of disorder to be treated. Typically, 3 treatment sessions scheduled 7-10 days apart are needed. Generally, no anesthesia is required. EPAT Shockwave Therapy offers pain relief and restoration of mobility in:
Recovery is simple, and it works! Since EPAT is non-invasive, there is no bruising or swelling after the procedure. It is recommended to avoid impactful activities and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) for 6 weeks following treatment. After 3 treatments, 85% of patients report significant pain reduction.
The innovative ESWT Shockwave Therapy technology provides a non-invasive solution for conditions which are not helped by anti-inflammatory, immobilization devices, or other conventional treatments. With no surgical risks, very little downtime, EPAT is a proven and effective treatment to help eliminate pain and increase quality of life.
