At Austin Foot and Ankle Specialists, our goal is to provide our patients with expert care using the most current and state-of-the-art technology available. For this reason, we have incorporated an amazing piece of technology into our practice called Extracorporeal Pressure Activation Therapy - EPAT for short. This technology is used to treat acute and chronic musculoskeletal conditions.
How does EPAT work?
EPAT uses a small device that creates a mechanical stimulus that stimulates the body to heal. The therapy reduces inflammation and pain while increasing the blood supply to the area being treated. While using this technology, Drs. Craig Thomajan and Shine John have found that it can speed recovery, reduce inflammation, and get you back to the activities that you love.
If you have been suffering with a chronic or acute condition either in your Achilles tendon or in your plantar fascia, this might be the treatment option for you. Contact the experts at Austin Foot and Ankle Specialists. We’ll give you an accurate, thorough diagnosis and get you back on those trails!
