If you have experienced pain from plantar fasciitis, you know just how uncomfortable it can be. Furthermore, severe pain can impact your daily activates and your quality of life, overall. This condition, also known as policeman’s heel is the result of your plantar fascia, the thick bank connecting your heel and toes, becomes inflamed. It is a common condition, but it can be quite painful. Symptoms commonly include a stabbing pain close to your heel that is usually worse in the mornings.
In the past, patients who have been diagnosed with plantar fasciitis but were not having success with conservative treatment options, surgery was likely the only option to provide some relief for the condition. However, at Certified Foot and Ankle Specialists, we have a conservative treatment option to address your plantar fasciitis pain and keep you from going under the knife: the EPAT.
Dr. Meisenburg demonstrates and explains just how the EPAT uses a pulse of energy to break up the scar tissue in your affected extremities and reduce inflammation. This treatment is non-invasive and can be completed by our podiatrists in-office.
The best part about this procedure is that most of our patients who give it a try can expect pain relief after just three sessions. Additionally, about 80 percent of our patients have reported to be pain free and/or have significant pain reduction after completing the procedure
Currently, this treatment option is available in our state-of-the-art office located in Coral Springs. We offer our patients same day service, emergency appointments and so much more to help them get back on their feet as quickly as possible.
