Our Waterbury & Newtown, CT Podiatrists With The Most Advanced Technology & Treatment For Podiatry Care
SHOCKWAVE THERAPY (ESWT)
Many patients come to our Practice, Performance Foot & Ankle Specialists, with heel pain, Achilles tendonitis and multiple types of sports injuries.
What we are doing is a treatment called EPAT (Extra corporeal Pulse Activated Technology ). It works by using intense pulses of sound waves to break up the scar tissue and increase blood flow to the injured area. This helps to reduce inflammation, relieve the pain and stimulate the body's own healing processes.
The procedure is performed in our office, requires no anethesia and patients experience no down time. After the treatment, many patients experience immediate relief from their symptoms which continues to improve with subsequent treatments over a 3-4 week period.
We see a high level of successful outcomes using EPAT especially when traditional conservative treatments have not been effective.
Since we treat many athletes, Our Podiatrists really appreciate new non-invasive treatments like EPAT to keep our patients out of surgery and back in the game.
So, if you're experiencing chronic foot and ankle pain, or if you're suffering from an overuse injury, make an appointment to see us to determine if you are a candidate for EPAT.
AMNIOTIC STEM CELL THERAPY
At Performance Foot and Ankle Specialists we take great pride in offering the latest technolgies to help with painful tendonitis, plantar faciitis and arthritis of the Foot and Ankle.
When faced with difficult foot and ankle problems that do not respond to conservative care we often are facing surgery. Amniotic derived stem cell therapy is a newer technique derived from the placenta.
These cells are younger and are more effective when injected into chronic tendonitis, facial areas and arthritc joints.
We have found that amniotic stem cells promote quicker and more complete healing. The treatment is performed in the office and patients can resume their pretreatment activities almost immediately.
If you've been suffering with the following:
- FOOT AND ANKLE TENDONITIS
- HEEL PAIN
- PLANTAR FACIITIS
- LIGAMENT PAIN
- JOINT PAIN
- ARTHRITIS OF FOOT OR ANKLE
Amniotic stem cell therapy may be a good non-surgical solution for you. Schedule an appointment today for a comprehensive evaluation.
At our practice, Performance Foot & Ankle Specialists, we utilize diagnostic ultrasound to determine many different bone and soft tissue foot and ankle pathologies. The procedure is completely non-invasive, painless and is performed right in our office.
Within a few minutes, we are able to evaluate and diagnose a multitude of problems such as neuromas, tendonitis, bursitis, bone spurs, ulcers, arthritis and plantar fasciitis and how extensive the pathology may be.
The images are captured to our patients' charts and we then have an opportunity to discuss and implement a comprehensive treatment plan immediately. The ultrasound machine is also sometimes utilized in very specifically placed therapeutic injections if needed and is covered by most insurances. Contact our Podiatry Team today.
