EPAT®: Great News For Your Feet

EPAT® is a revolutionary, non-invasive, FDA approved, and highly effective treatment for your feet.


Essentially EPAT® enhances blood circulation, accelerates the healing process causing damaged tissue to gradually regenerate and heal. Specifically the machine delivers non-invasive low frequency (8-12 Hz) acoustic sound waves into the area. The sound waves act as pressure, and penetrate deep through your soft tissue. The energy triggers the cells in the soft tissue to release certain biochemicals that stimulate and literally intensify the body’s natural healing process – in part by increasing the nutrient flow to the chronically injured area.

  • Insertional Achilles Tendonitis
  • Achilles Tendinosis
  • Tendinosis of the Foot and Ankle
  •  Chronic Heel Pain
  • Acute and Chronic Muscle Pain
  • Morton’s Neuroma of the Foot
  • Plantar Plate Tears


The EPAT® machine is small and has an attachment that looks similar to an ultrasound wand.

Typically treatments occur once a week for a series of 3 to 6 treatments. Patients can expect each treatment to take approximately 5 to 10 minutes depending of course on the total number and size of areas.

​Typically treatment is NOT painful. Some patients may experience some slight discomfort.

Many patients notice a substantial and immediate lessening of their pain. In other patients, the pain relief may take longer.

Dr. Smith has been treating me for the last three years and I would highly recommend him to anyone who needs help with any type of foot problem. He works and talks fast but he will always take the time to answer any questions and be sure you understand your condition and your treatment. The staff is competent, knowledgable and friendly.
