NonInvasive Energy To Heal Hurting Feet
What to expect during your shockwave treatment
At Country Foot Care, our skilled doctors will evaluate you lower limb condition and determine if EPAT would truly improve your pain management. Plantar fasciitis and Achilles tendinitis are among the most common conditions that benefit from shockwave therapy. We’ll examine your feet and ankles, and consider what other treatments have been used. If this noninvasive method is a beneficial option for you, we’ll begin the treatment.
When you come into the office for the therapy, our team will prepare your foot, then use the EPAT machine to deliver the targeted shockwaves to the spot in your foot that needs it most. The whole procedure is relatively quick, requiring no incision or anesthesia and resulting in no scarring. Many people are able to return to their activities right away, though some experience a degree of soreness afterwards. You will be provided with after-care instructions for dealing with any soreness, including taking a temporary break from hard-impact activities. Many people notice a significant improvement after a single treatment, though some may need follow-up treatments as well.
The therapy works well for both acute and chronic issues like plantar fasciitis, stubborn Achilles tendinitis, and shin splints. If you’re struggling with long-term issues that are simply not recovering on their own, shockwave therapy may be your best option for long-lasting pain management.
