Treatment for Foot, Heel, & Ankle Pain

EPAT Treatment
Are you experiencing Foot, Heel or Ankle Pain?

Before you consider surgery you should know that you do have other options for treatment.

Heel pain is the most common foot problem that we treat in our offices. It is often attributed to plantar fasciitis. While most heel pain is responsive to conservative therapy including orthotics, strapping, physical therapy, NSAIDS, cortisone injections and other methods, over 10% of patients remain with pain. These patients are faced with the choice of having surgery or living with chronic heel pain.

Experts now say that Pulse Activation/Shock Wave Therapy for heel pain is an alternative treatment before resorting to surgery, which has a lengthy recovery time and carries the risk of complications.

We have created this website to introduce you to and inform you about another option you have for the treatment of heel pain. Take a few moments to browse through the different pages and learn more about how EPAT can help reduce and successfully treat your foot and ankle pain.

We have also made requesting a consultation a simple process via our website. Contact us anytime you have a question or concern about foot or ankle care. Our podiatrist, Dr. Patrick DeHeer, is highly knowledgable and experienced in the treatment of all forms of foot and ankle conditions.
