Family Foot & Ankle Centers is committed to offering our patients the most modern and proven treatment solutions for foot pain.

We now offer Extracorporeal Pulse Activation Therapy (EPAT) in our Waxahachie, Ennis & Corsicana offices.  EPAT is a modern and proven treatment solution to treat your foot or heel pain.

Even if your heel pain is severe, or has been plaguing you for months (or even years), there’s a great chance that EPAT will be able to help you.

As an alternative to traditional treatment methods in podiatry including surgery, EPAT improves your healing potential, rather than further damaging an area that has degenerated because of poor blood flow, tissue injury, overuse or weakness.

What Is EPAT?

Extracorporeal Pulse Activation Technology (EPAT), also called shockwave, is an advanced technology that uses acoustic energy waves to treat a number of podiatry and pain issues. It is FDA approved to treat muscle, tendon and ligament disorders. It is painless, non-invasive, effective and safe. We have had no side effects with EPAT treatments at Family Foot & Ankle Centers. EPAT is often used if other treatments have failed and it only takes about 5 minutes. When performed by a foot specialist, EPAT treats the root cause of your pain or injury, improves blood flow and  improves your mobility and quality of life.

What Conditions Can Be Treated?

Podiatrists use this breakthrough technology to treat pain in the feet. Common conditions treated at Family Foot & Ankle Centers are heel pain, Achilles Tendoniits, arch pain, plantar fasciitis and many other tendon disorders.

What Are Benefits of Using EPAT?

The benefits of EPAT shockwave therapy are often experienced after only 3 treatments. Some patients report immediate pain relief after the treatment, although it can take up to 4-8 weeks for pain relief to begin. The purpose of the procedure is to eliminate pain and restores full mobility. Over 80% of patients treated report to be pain-free and/or have significant pain reduction within 8 weeks.
