Shockwave Therapy (ePAT) in Wappingers Falls, NY

Shockwave Therapy (ePAT) To Treat Heel Pain & Chronic Achilles Tendinitis

Extracorporeal pulse activated technology (referred to as ePAT, or shockwave therapy) has been shown to be an effective, non-invasive treatment option to address chronic Achilles tendinitis and plantar fasciitis. Our podiatrist in Wappingers Falls, NY explains more about shockwave therapy below and how it can help relieve your Achilles tendinitis and heel pain.

Causes of Heel Pain

Many patients experience heel pain that is caused by plantar fasciitis — an inflammation of the plantar fascia. The plantar fascia is the band of muscle that connects your heel bone to the front of your foot. When this muscle becomes inflamed, it can cause severe heel pain that worsens when you walk.

Achilles tendinitis is inflammation in the Achilles tendon, which connects the calf muscle to the heel bone. It is common in runners and older individuals who work out or play sports infrequently and causes heel pain and tenderness.

How Does Shockwave Therapy Work?

Research has shown that shockwaves are an effective treatment for reversing inflammation, which addresses the root cause of both plantar fasciitis and Achilles tendinitis. Additionally, this research has shown that treatment with ePAT has the following benefits:

  • 50% decrease in the thickening of the fascia
  • 40% decrease in soft tissue swelling
  • 50% decrease in bone bruising

If you want to do more than simply treat the symptoms of your heel pain, or have had limited success with other providers, let us show you the restorative effects of innovative ePAT!

ePAT Offers Quick Relief

Traditional treatments for plantar fasciitis include stretching, ice, arch supports, and sometimes steroid injections. While these are great conservative methods to resolve heel pain, they do take longer to provide total pain relief. Shockwave therapy offers faster relief, so you can get back on your feet quicker!

Shockwave therapy does not require anesthesia and takes less than 10 minutes. Through experience and research, we have found that this advanced, non-invasive treatment provides significant pain relief in 80% of patients — and it works around your daily schedule and activities!

During your consultation, our podiatrist will use our advanced, in-office ultrasound technology to detect and diagnose the type of inflammation causing your heel pain. We will then provide a specialized treatment plan for you and determine if you are a good candidate for ePAT.
