Plano & Dallas Foot Specialist for Extracoporeal Pulse Activation Therapy (EPAT) to Treat Foot Pain

Enjoy a Life Free from Foot Pain

dallas foot specialist epat therapyThose with ankle injuries, foot injuries, or foot pain can benefit from an additional treatment method known as Extracorporeal Pulse Activation Therapy (EPAT). This treatment method is used to treat soft tissue and bone disorders around the foot and ankle. EPAT is acknowledged for its effectiveness in treating foot conditions like Achilles tendonitis, plantar fasciitis (heel spurs), chronic muscle pain, and fractured bones that are poorly healed. Our Plano and Dallas foot specialist specializes in EPAT to treat foot pain.

The EPAT test is used worldwide with state-of-the-art equipment that has been evaluated and approved by the FDA.

How Does EPAT Treatment Work?

EPAT treatment can be used on tissues that have been hardened by calcium salts. It works by sending sound wave pulses into the affected area. These sound wave pulses cause what’s known as microtrauma, or tiny, controlled injuries in the soft tissue or bone that provoke a healing reaction in your body with improved blood circulation.

EPAT treatment with our Plano or Dallas foot specialist usually lasts around 15 minutes and will be repeated once weekly for three weeks.

How Long Does Recovery Take After EPAT?

EPAT is a non-invasive procedure, meaning recovery will be quick with little down time expected. In some cases, patients may experience mild discomfort or redness around the treatment area. Slight bruising is also possible, but these issues typically resolve themselves within a few days.

Most patients report substantial improvement within a month of treatment, but the full range of benefits could take up to three months for certain patients. Immediate improvement after the procedure has been reported on occasion.

Asked to use a pain scale of 0-10, 83% of patients treated with EPAT have expressed a reduction of at least five scale points for their ankle pain or foot pain. Rarely do patients require invasive surgery, but it may be required in certain cases. There are no complications or side effects from EPAT and no conditions have worsened as a result of the treatment.

"I did 3 EPAT treatments and it gave me tremendous relief from my plantar fasciitis. I highly recommend this for anyone who is dealing with PF. Also, the physical therapist Dr. Brook sent me too is fantastic. I am definitely on the mend and so glad I did EPAT."- All H. 5 star
"Dr Northcutt is a fantastic physician. My first surgery with him (although painful), went very well. A couple of issues (with his staff) needed to be corrected, I appreciated his calm and professional demeanor and he corrected those issues promptly. He sets the bar high (the mark of a great physician), and that is the key reason why I'm coming back to him to correct my other foot. I would highly recommend him."- She B. 5 star
"The staff at Dallas Podiatry Works could not have been more courteous, helpful, and professional in doing their job. They made me feel comfortable when I was there, which is certainly appreciated. They answered all the questions that I had and just made each visit the most pleasurable that it could be. I would highly recommend them to anyone needing this type of care."- Joseph B. 5 star
"My experience was a good one from pre-op to post -op. I saw the doctor right before my surgery.He explained the process to me and my husband. The recovery nurse was great. It was neither crowded or chaotic as some day surgery centers. My foot is doing well as I follow instructions. I look forward to my one week progress visit!"- Patricia T.5 star
"I had dealt with a painful foot problem for five months and had seen three different Doctors before seeing an article in D Magazine about Dr. Joel Brook. Dr. Brook took one look at my foot, explained the causes for my pain and set me up on a successful treatment plan. He is very knowledgeable, thorough and exhibits a caring attitude. I highly recommend him."- Ginger W. 5 star
