What is Acoustic Wave Therapy?
Acoustic wave therapy is also known as shockwave therapy or EPAT and is done by utilizing acoustic pressure waves directly on the site of your pain. This treatment breaks up remaining scar tissue and helps to reduce inflammation that hasn’t died down from other forms of treatment.
EPAT therapy requires no downtime, meaning that you can continue your normal daily life after treatment is done. Treatment is also relatively pain-free and requires no anesthesia to perform. Results with CuraMedix acoustic wave therapy are fairly high and success has been shown to be as high as 90 percent. This form of treatment allows you to avoid surgery and because of the minimal downtime, you won’t have to reschedule your life around healing or treatment. Each session is quick and should only take about five to ten minutes per session. Depending on the severity of your condition and your pain, your doctor may recommend anywhere from three to five sessions.
EPAT therapy can help treat a variety of foot problems, including:
- Plantar Fasciitis
- Achilles Tendinitis
- Foot and Ankle Injuries
- Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome
- Heel Pain
