Shockwave (EPAT): An Extremely Effective Technique To Get Rid Of Plantar Fasciitis

heel pain in the morning

If you have had plantar fasciitis you know how frustrating it can be to your everyday life. Often you wake up and have pain with your first step, and then it returns again at the end of the day or every time you sit down. You have been icing and stretching and talking to all your friends and still are not getting better.

Why, why will this heel pain not go away? The number one cause of plantar fasciitis or heel pain is overuse. The overuse begins to wear down the fibers of your plantar fascia and they become fragile and often tear. Most patients with heel pain that will not go away have microscopic tearing.

Well how do you fix this tearing? One of the most advanced and effective treatment options is shockwave therapy. It has no downtime, no anesthesia, is non-innvassive, no scarring and is fast and effective in healing the torn fascia. This is a great option for active or athletic patients. The best shockwave avaible is the EPAT or Extracorporeal Pulse Activation Technology by CuraMedix. There are a lot of other types out there but this has the best results and the most long term data. If you want to heal your fasciitis fast and with no down time this is the device.

How it works? We typically employ 5 sessions all about 1 week apart. Each session takes about 10 minutes and is pain free and can be done in the office. The shockwave, EPAT, stimulates your bodies own healing cascade to recruit new cells and a new blood supply to heal your fascia. It is so effective that most professional sports teams have a unit to treat their athletes.
