The plantar fascia is the thick tendon that connects your toes and your
heel. When it is stretched too far or is under excessive strain, it can
tear and cause intense pain and swelling. This can make it very painful
to walk, exercise, wear certain types of shoes, and get around. If you
are experiencing plantar fasciitis, you are likely already aware of the
great pain and difficulty it can impose on your life and are looking for
a way out.
If you are in the Aberdeen area and are interested in exploring treatments
for plantar fasciitis, call ProFysio Physical Therapy today at (732) 333-6360 for help.
What is Extracorporeal Pulse Activation Treatment (EPAT)?
EPAT is a non-invasive, FDA-approved method for treating pain and discomfort
in the tendons and muscles. When you receive this treatment, a physician
uses gel to cover the affected area and then applies the EPAT device to
the skin surface. Over the course of about 15 minutes, the EPAT device
emits sound waves while placing pressure on the area where you are experiencing
pain in order to stimulate tissue regeneration.
EPAT for Plantar Fasciitis
ProFysio Physical Therapy, we offer Extracorporeal Pulse Activation Treatment (EPAT) for people
experiencing pain and discomfort stemming from plantar fasciitis. It has
proven effective for many patients and can even alleviate pain entirely,
allowing you to once again bear weight on the affected foot and engage
in normal activities like running, jogging, dancing, and more.
However, EPAT is not a one-and-done treatment. In order to effectively
treat plantar fasciitis and regain pain-free function, you will likely
have to complete an EPAT regimen involving a series of treatments spanning
several months, or it may not have the desired effect.
EPAT is safe, effective, and applicable to other heel- and foot-related
issues. Even if the source of your discomfort is not plantar fasciitis,
it may still be a valuable treatment to explore.
