Giants Receiver Hakeem Nicks Fracture

Having sharp stabbing pain on the bottom of the foot when you first set foot in the morning? Or what about after sitting for a long time and then standing up? If so, then you might have a condition known as plantar fasciitis. Plantar fasciitis affects the bottom of the heel and results in inflammation of the band of tissue that attaches from the heel to the skin in the toes. If you have tried injections, shoe orthotics, and physical therapy and the pain is still there, then a new revolutionary treatment called EPAT is available. EPAT is based on a unique set of pressure waves that stimulate the metabolism, enhance blood circulation, and accelerate the healing process. Some of the benefits of this procedure are that it requires no anesthesia, it allows for immediate ambulation, and replaces the need for surgery. This treatment consists of a series of three treatments with maximum relief at the twelve week mark. With over 80% successful outcomes, EPAT treatment is an excellent alternative to steroid injections or for those who fear needles. So don’t let heel pain get in the way of the holidays!
