The EPAT and Laser treatments are working!

EPAT – Ankle and Achilles tendon Relief!! This modern technology is providing a new, non-invasive treatment for foot, ankle, and heel pain relief. EPAT - Extracorporeal Pulse Activation Treatment - is applied via a wand through pressure waves that stimulate the area of application. This area benefits from enhanced circulation, and aids as accelerating the healing process.

A patient has been seeing a specialist over the past year and has recently been seen here at Dr. Shoemaker’s office. This patient has been having chronic ankle and Achilles tendon pain. She came into the office wearing a Cam Walker boot and using a cane as she needed assistance with ambulating. After further review, patient had injured her ankle and was still have swelling and pain when she tried to wear different types of shoes. Patient had tried the traditional cortisone injections, but was still finding no relief. After accepting EPAT and Laser treatment over a course of 3 weeks, towards the end of her treatments session’s patient had noticed she was able to get out of the boot and walk. She noticed the swelling and inflammation had dramatically decreased. Towards her last treatment she stated, “I feel so good, my ankle doesn’t hurt! I can finally wear heels again!”
