Also known as Extracorporeal Pulse Activation Technology, EPAT is a non-invasive way to treat plantar fasciitis using pulsed pressure waves to breakdown scar tissue and swelling, reduce pain, and increases the circulation of blood and growth factors to stimulate the growth of new plantar fascia. Here at Gotham Footcare in NYC Shockwave Therapy involves 4 to 6 in-office sessions approximately 10 minutes each week once a week.
There is no downtime needed; no incisions, no anesthesia, and it is over 80% effective. Shockwave therapy is an advanced and highly effective non-invasive treatment cleared by the FDA that delivers high-energy sound waves into the painful areas of the body to breakdown scar tissue and enhance blood circulation to improve the regenerative potential of damaged tissue.
Typically, after receiving shockwave therapy New York City patients begin to experience beneficial effects after only 1 or 2 treatments, and include no downtime. This non-surgical therapy for pain not only eliminates pain but also helps restore mobility, thus quickly improving your quality of life if you suffer from tendonitis or plantar fasciitis.
