Shockwave Therapy


The newest and most advanced technology and treatment for heel, arch and tendon pain! 

The Center for Podiatric Medicine is proud to announce the addition of EPAT Shock Wave treatment to our practice. Extracorporeal Pulse Activation Treatment (EPAT) is an FDA approved, non-invasive treatment based on a proprietary set of unique pressure waves that stimulate the metabolism, enhance blood circulation and accelerate the healing process. 



  • Plantar fascitis/heel and arch pain
  • Achilles tendonitis
  • Posterior Tibial and Peroneal tendonitis
  • Shin splints
  • Delayed or non-union of fractures


  • Non-invasive
  • No incision-no risk of infection-no scar formation
  • Up to 90% effective (Published data-long term pain relief)
  • Fast, effective, and affordable in office treatment


In office treatment takes about 10 minutes and no anesthesia is required. Optimal results typically require 3 treatments at weekly intervals with complete healing at 12 weeks. Patients can return to work and exercise often with immediate reduction of pain levels.

Traditional treatment methods for these chronic, painful conditions include: drugs, injections, immobilization, physical therapy, rest and even surgery.

Shock wave treatment can replace or enhance these traditional methods, significantly reducing recovery times. This is the same technology that is used on Olympic, professional and college athletes to accelerate healing and return to play.

EPAT technologies by Curamedix, which have been used globally to successfully treat a broad range of musculoskeletal conditions, are the result of over 20 years of non-invasive technology experience gathered by STORZ MEDICAL.

We are excited about this new treatment option and the ability to help our patients recover faster without the risks and added costs associated with traditional methods. Our practice is committed to providing the latest and most effective modalities to our patients and healthcare community.
