Where does it hurt?

Foot and Ankle

Description

Heel pain is typically the result of overuse, but can be caused by a major injury. Heel pain usually occurs on the back or underside of your heel.

Ankle pain or a sprain is often the result of a forceful twisting of the ankle causing a tear of ligaments in the ankle, in which no bones are broken.

Symptoms

Heel pain on the bottom, front edge of the heel. Tenderness over the bottom of the foot. Pain, to varying degrees, when walking, which is usually worse in the morning and improves throughout the day.

Ankle pain, swelling, bluish discoloration, pain with walking, slight increased warmth to the injured area.

Treatment

Ask your doctor about Extracorporeal Pulse Activation Technology (EPAT®).

EPAT® is an innovative, non-invasive way to treat pain. It is based on a unique set of pressure waves that stimulate the metabolism, enhance blood circulation, and accelerate the healing process. Damaged tissue gradually regenerates and eventually heals.

As an alternative to surgery, the procedure includes 3-5 in-office sessions approximately 5-10 minutes each at weekly intervals.

Lower Leg

Description

Calf pain in the lower leg is often a result of inflammation of the tendon that extends from the lower calf to the heel. Pain is typically located at the back of the ankle and worsens with walking.

Shin pain can result from overuse of the leg. The pain can arise from inflammation of the bone, the muscle or connective tissue. The most common causes are ill-fitting shoes, over training, and/or running on hard surfaces.

Symptoms

Calf pain or swelling in the back of the ankle, decreased ankle movement.

Pain in the front and back of the shin that is often worse in the beginning of the exercise session, mild swelling of the front of the lower leg, pain with bending toes or foot downward

Understanding EPAT®
Let’s treat the root cause of your pain

What is EPAT®? ANSWER CLOSE

Extracorporeal Pulse Activation Technology (EPAT®) is the most advanced and highly effective non-invasive treatment method cleared by the FDA. This proprietary technology is based on a unique set of pressure waves that stimulate the metabolism, enhance blood circulation and accelerate the healing process.

What disorders can be treated? ANSWER CLOSE

Generally, acute or chronic musculoskeletal pain and/or pain that significantly impairs mobility or quality of life including:

 

  • Foot and heel pain
  • Achilles pain
  • Tendon and/or tendon insertion pain
  • Neuromas
  • Trigger points

What are the expected results? ANSWER CLOSE

Some patients report immediate pain relief after the treatment, although it can take up to four weeks for pain relief to begin. The procedure eliminates pain and restores full mobility, thus improving your quality of life. Over 80% of patients treated report to be pain free and/or have significant pain reduction.

How is the treatment performed? ANSWER CLOSE

Coupling gel is applied to the treatment area of interest to enhance effectiveness. After these preparations, EPAT® pressure waves are released via the applicator moved over the area of interest in a circular motion.

Is it safe? ANSWER CLOSE

Yes. This FDA cleared technology was developed in Europe and is currently used around the globe. A wealth of medical experience, state-of-the-art engineering and optimal quality have been built into each EPAT® device, and extensive clinical studies and tests have confirmed its safety and efficacy.

What is the duration of the treatment and how many treatments will I need? ANSWER CLOSE

Treatment sessions take approximately 5-10 minutes depending on the disorder to be treated. Generally, at least 3 treatment sessions are necessary at weekly intervals.

What are the possible side effects or complications? ANSWER CLOSE

The non-invasive EPAT® treatment has virtually no risks or side effects. In some cases patients may experience some minor discomfort which may continue for a few days. It is normal to have some residual pain after intense exercise or a full day of work.

What if I have a special health condition? ANSWER CLOSE

The safety and effectiveness of the EPAT® procedure has not been determined on people with the following health conditions. Your doctor will provide you with information about how these and other conditions might affect the determination to perform the EPAT® procedures.

 

  • Malignancies
  • DVT (Deep Vein Thrombosis)

Why consider non-invasive EPAT®? ANSWER CLOSE

EPAT® has a proven success rate that is equal to or greater than that of traditional treatment methods (including surgery) and without the risks, complications and lengthy recovery time.
