Say Goodbye to Foot Pain: Introducing Extracorporeal Pulse Activation Technology (EPAT)



Do you suffer from foot pain that just won’t go away? Have you tried everything from rest and ice to medications and physical therapy, but nothing seems to help? If so, we have some exciting news for you. At Vargas Foot and Ankle Specialists, we are proud to announce that we will soon be offering Extracorporeal Pulse Activation Technology (EPAT) as a new treatment option for our patients. This cutting-edge technology has been shown to treat a wide range of foot and ankle problems successfully, and we can’t wait to see the positive impact it will have on our patients’ lives.

EPAT – Shockwave Therapy

So what exactly is EPAT, and how does it work? EPAT is a non-invasive, FDA-approved technology that uses high-energy acoustic waves to stimulate the body’s natural healing processes. This process is known as “mechanotransduction,” and it involves sending rapid pulses of energy into the affected area to increase blood flow, stimulate cell growth, and promote the formation of new nerve fibers. Essentially, EPAT jumpstarts the body’s own healing mechanisms, allowing for faster and more effective healing.

EPAT has been shown to be effective in treating a wide range of foot and ankle problems, including plantar fasciitis, Achilles tendinitis, heel spurs, stress fractures, and more. The treatment is quick and painless, with each session lasting between 5-15 minutes and requiring no anesthesia or downtime. Patients typically require between 3-5 treatments, depending on the severity of their condition, and can expect to experience significant pain relief and improved mobility within just a few weeks.

One of the biggest advantages of EPAT is that it is completely non-invasive, meaning that it does not require surgery or injections. This makes it an excellent option for patients who are looking for a non-surgical alternative to traditional treatments like cortisone injections or surgery. Additionally, EPAT has been shown to be effective even in cases where traditional treatments have failed, making it an excellent “second chance” option for patients who have been living with chronic foot or ankle pain for months or even years.

At Vargas Foot and Ankle Specialists, we are excited to be among the first providers in the area to offer EPAT to our patients. Our team of experienced podiatrists and support staff are committed to providing our patients with the highest quality care and support, and we believe that EPAT will be an excellent addition to our range of treatment options. We look forward to working with our patients to help them say goodbye to foot pain and get back to living their best lives.

If you are struggling with foot or ankle pain and are looking for a non-invasive, highly effective treatment option, we encourage you to consider EPAT. This cutting-edge technology has been shown to be effective in treating a wide range of foot and ankle problems, and we believe that it has the potential to help many of our patients find lasting relief from their pain. If you are interested in learning more about EPAT or scheduling a consultation, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us today. We would be honored to help you get back on your feet!
