EPAT® a non-invasive, FDA approved, and highly effective treatment for your feet can eliminate pain from Achilles Tendonitis. EPAT® works by increasing the rate of healing for soft tissue injuries, and relieving the more common and painful plantar fasciitis and Achilles tendonitis.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Essentially EPAT® enhances blood circulation, accelerates the healing process causing damaged tissue to gradually regenerate and heal. Specifically the machine delivers non-invasive low frequency (8-12 Hz) acoustic sound waves into the area. The sound waves act as pressure, and penetrate deep through your soft tissue. The energy triggers the cells in the soft tissue to release certain biochemicals that stimulate and literally intensify the body’s natural healing process – in part by increasing the nutrient flow to the chronically injured area.

More about EPAT treatment
The EPAT® machine is small and has an attachment that looks similar to an ultrasound wand. In most cases, treatment will be weekly for a series of 3 to 6 treatments. Treatments take approximately 5 to 10 minutes. Typically treatment is NOT painful. Some patients may experience some slight discomfort.
If you are a good candidate for EPAT treatment, our doctors will highly recommend it for your Achilles Tendonitis. Many patients notice a substantial and immediate lessening of their pain.Leave a reply
