Austin, TX – Feb. 21, 2017 – Spinal Rehab Sports Medicine is a premiere provider of chiropractic treatment through the utilization of advanced techniques, medical technology and equipment that includes EPAT therapy. Especially effective in the treatment of plantar fasciitis, EPAT therapy is non-invasive, requires no surgery, and uses the power of pressure waves to address pain. Extracorporeal pulse activation treatment (EPAT) is highly effective for relieving multiple types of painful conditions and to accelerate and hasten healing. Patients receiving EPAT therapy have the added advantage of being able to quickly return to their regular activities. FDA-approved, EPAT offers a painless solution for injuries that heal slowly, those that won’t heal, and chronic pain conditions. EPAT therapy works through the application of carefully modulated, high-speed acoustic waves that stimulates metabolism and enhances circulation to the affected area to relieve inflammation that causes swelling and pain. Commonly known as shockwave therapy, treatment typically requires 5-7 minutes for a localized injury and can be utilized for a comprehensive range of wounds and injuries. One of the most common uses of EPAT therapy is for plantar fasciitis, an inflammation of the tissues that support the arch of the foot and those that connect the heel to the toes. It’s a condition that’s most common in middle age, affects runners and joggers, those who are pregnant or overweight, and individuals who wear shoes without adequate support. Plantar fasciitis also impacts those who stand for long periods of time, people with flat feet, individuals with improper gait patterns, and people who frequently wear high heels. Dancers are prone to the pain associated with plantar fasciitis and individuals who engage in frequent or long distance walking. Those with the condition often experience stabbing pain in the foot upon taking their first steps in the morning. The pain may retreat with usage, but return in full force after sitting, standing or walking for long periods. Plantar fasciitis often begins with low pain levels that are overlooked or ignored, but the pain gradually increases over time. EPAT therapy at Spinal Rehab Sports Medicine relieves pain and accelerates healing of plantar fasciitis. Patients can return to their regular activities in 24-48 hours and experience immediate functionality. There’s no need for surgery, hospital stays or anesthesia. EPAT is a non-invasive therapy that eliminates the potential for infections and has a proven success rate that can be as effective as surgery.
