If you’re seeking a cutting-edge solution for foot and ankle discomfort, look no further than Vargas Foot and Ankle Specialists. Our commitment to innovative care has led us to introduce EPAT shockwave therapy – a groundbreaking approach that’s transforming the way we address various foot and ankle conditions. From plantar fasciitis to Achilles tendonitis, EPAT therapy is making waves in the world of podiatry.
What is EPAT Shockwave Therapy?
EPAT, or Extracorporeal Pulse Activation Technology, is a non-invasive and virtually painless treatment option. It harnesses the power of acoustic waves to stimulate the body’s natural healing processes. This therapy has gained prominence due to its remarkable effectiveness in addressing chronic pain and musculoskeletal issues.
How Does EPAT Work?
The EPAT device delivers controlled pressure waves to the affected area. These waves penetrate deep into the tissue, enhancing blood circulation and metabolism. This heightened metabolic activity accelerates the healing process by promoting cell regeneration and tissue repair. Additionally, EPAT therapy triggers the release of pain-relieving substances, providing patients with much-needed relief.
The Advantages of EPAT Therapy
- Swift and Painless: EPAT therapy sessions are brief and painless. Patients can resume their daily activities immediately after treatment, without any downtime.
- Non-Invasive: Unlike surgical interventions, EPAT is non-invasive, eliminating the need for incisions and anesthesia.
- Versatile Applications: EPAT can effectively address a range of conditions, including but not limited to plantar fasciitis, Achilles tendonitis, and more.
- Avoiding Medication: EPAT offers a drug-free alternative for pain relief, reducing the reliance on pain medications and their potential side effects.
EPAT Shockwave Therapy Cost and Treatment
One of the most frequently asked questions is about the cost of EPAT therapy. At Vargas Foot and Ankle Specialists, we believe in providing accessible care. The cost of EPAT therapy varies based on the specific condition being treated and the number of required sessions. During your consultation, our team will provide a tailored treatment plan along with transparent pricing information.
What to Expect During EPAT Treatment
During an EPAT session, a certified specialist will apply gel to the treatment area and use the EPAT device to deliver the acoustic waves. You might experience a gentle tapping sensation, but rest assured, the procedure is generally well-tolerated.
How Many Sessions are Required?
The number of sessions needed depends on the individual and the severity of the condition. Many patients experience significant improvement after just a few sessions, but a complete treatment plan may involve multiple appointments spaced a week or two apart.
Is EPAT Therapy Right for You?
EPAT therapy is an excellent option for individuals seeking non-invasive, drug-free pain relief. It’s suitable for various age groups and can be especially beneficial for those with low to intermediate educational backgrounds.
