Austin Foot and Ankle Specialists is committed to the innovation and advancement of leading non-invasive technologies such as Extracorporeal Pulse Activation Technology (EPAT®) that offer multi-therapeutic solutions. This highly advanced treatment option is available so we can care for our patients more effectively and efficiently, which saves you both time and money.
What is EPAT®?
Our high frequency radial pressure wave treatment with EPAT® technology is manufactured by Curamedix, whose extensive research into the biological mechanisms and cellular effects of acoustic pressure waves has resulted in the development of this powerful new treatment method.
Extracorporeal Pulse Activation Technology is a revolutionary method of treating an array of injuries, including plantar fasciitis, Achilles tendinitis, ulceration, wounds, and stress fractures. This therapy is an FDA-approved, nonsurgical method for treating both chronic and acute heel pain. EPAT® uses acoustic pressure waves to enhance blood circulation in the area, stimulate metabolism, and accelerate the healing process in a safe, effective manner.
Treatment consists of 3-6 sessions established at weekly intervals. The process is non-invasive, requires no anesthesia, and is performed here in our Austin, TX office. Our patients benefit from shortened recovery time, but at the same time having an affordable treatment option that is fast, safe, and effective. We can use this technology to treat both chronic and acute musculoskeletal conditions, which covers a majority of common foot and ankle injuries and problems.
Specific examples of conditions commonly treated with our EPAT® technology include:
- Achilles Tendinitis
- Plantar Fasciitis
- Plantar Fasciosis
- Heel Pain Syndrome
- Posterior Tibial Tendonitis
- Peroneal Tendonitis
- Stress Fractures
- Inferior Metatarsal Bursitis
- Interdigital Neuromas (Morton’s Neuroma)
During the session, we utilize a two-step approach for treating your chronic and acute musculoskeletal conditions. First, we treat any congestion and pain in the areas that cause instability with the EPAT® technology. After that, we identify and control the asymmetry that created the pathology.
