Shockwave Therapy 1

What disorders can be treated?

Generally, acute or chronic musculoskeletal pain and/or pain that significantly impairs mobility or quality of life including:

  • Plantar Fasciitis
  • Achilles Pain
  • Tendon and/or tendon insertion pain
  • Chronic Heel Pain
  • Morton’s Neuroma
  • Trigger Points

What are the expected results?

The beneficial effects of shockwave therapy are often experienced after only 3 treatments. Some patients report immediate pain relief after the treatment, although it can take up to four weeks for pain relief to begin. The procedure eliminates pain and restores full mobility, thus improving your quality of life. Over 80% of patients treated report to be pain free and/or have significant pain reduction.

Is it safe?

Yes. This FDA cleared technology was developed in Europe and is currently used around the globe. A wealth of medical experience, state-of-the-art engineering and optimal quality have been built into each EPAT® device, and extensive clinical studies and tests have confirmed its safety and efficacy.

When performed by a qualified caregiver, Extracorporeal Pulse Activation Technology (EPAT®) has virtually no risks or side effects.

Dr. Sack evaluated my son’s ankle and was incredibly thorough and detailed in his analysis. He also provided a clear and concise explanation of my son’s injury and what a potential treatment plan would entail. I would highly recommend Bartlett Ankle and Foot Center and Dr. Sack.

Dr. Sack and Dr. Dunn are the only podiatrists I trust my feet with. Dr. Sack has seen me through many injuries and two surgeries now. He always listens to my concerns, and exhausts every option before we head down the surgical route. I love how responsive he is to his patients. I know if I ever have a question, he'll get back to me promptly. If you have problems with your feet, I highly recommend this practice! You won't be disappointed!

Why knew that "quarantine foot" was a thing? Just putting gym shoes back on around the house has helped a ton with my foot pain. Dr. Dunn is the best!
