For patients who suffer from overuse of soft tissue injuries, Extracorporeal Pulse Activation Technology (EPAT/Radial Pressure Wave), and Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy (ESWT/Focused Shockwave), are innovative evidence-based technology platforms used extensively around the world to stimulate tissue repair and regeneration.

Dr. Horowitz now offers both devices, to best tailor the treatment for your condition.

The CuraMedix EPAT device is the leading FDA-approved Shockwave treatment of acute or chronic musculoskeletal pain or pain that greatly debilitates mobility or quality of life. In podiatry, EPAT is primarily used for the treatment of pain and inflammation associated with joint ligament and tendon pathology. These include:

  • Plantar Fasciitis
  • Tendonitis: Achille, Posterior Tibial, Peroneal, etc
  • Intermetatarsal Neuroma

The CuraMedix EPAT device uses electromagnetically generated pressure waves that are delivered via hand-held applicator to the target site. These waves encourage metabolism, improve blood circulation, and speed up the healing process. In turn, damaged tissue regenerates and heals. As a non-invasive, office-based procedure, Extracorporeal Pulse Activation Technology (EPAT) represents a great advancement in treatment options for a wide range of musculoskeletal conditions.

Extracorporeal Pulse Activation Technology (EPAT) is a technologically advanced treatment alternative for patients suffering from chronic foot and ankle pain. It is non-invasive and requires no anesthesia, delivering favorable results with no risk of infection, no scarring, and no downtime.
