Shockwave Therapy

What is Shockwave Therapy?

Shockwave therapy, also known as Extracorporeal Pulse Activation Therapy (EPAT), is a state-of-the-art approach to treating foot pain without surgery. It is a quick, non-invasive technology that directs radial pressure waves and focused shockwaves into your afflicted area. The unique combination of therapeutic waves will help regenerate damaged tissue. Shockwave therapy treatment sessions last as little as 15 minutes, have none of the painful recovery typical of surgery, and can reduce pain while helping you live your best life. 

Heel pain is debilitating and can disrupt your entire life by making even the simplest daily activities painful and difficult. While everyone wants the pain to go away, nobody wants surgery. Invasive surgical treatments require anesthesia, downtime from work and family, as well as difficult rehabilitation treatments. Now, you can treat acute and chronic pain, connective tissue ailments, and musculoskeletal pain without invasive procedures. The experts at West Hartford Podiatry will help get you back to the daily activities that make life worth living without the surgery. 

Some of the conditions that Shockwave Therapy treats are:

  • Heel pain
  • Bursitis
  • Tibialis anterior syndrome
  • Heel pain
  • Achilles tendonitis

With this non-invasive procedure, patients will experience no downtime, as they will be able to continue their daily activities without complications.
