How Can Extracorporeal Pulse Activation Technology (EPAT) Help with Chronic Pain in Legs?

Wouldn’t it be great to wake up every morning without feeling pain? Unfortunately, for many of us, just getting out of bed is a painful experience. Our legs are stiff, and they seem like they do not respond to our movements. Extracorporeal pulse activation technology, or EPAT, is a proven technology that has helped many individuals battling with leg pain go on to live a pain-free life. This is a non-invasive technology that has revolutionized the way that leg pain treatment is viewed.

What Is A Dermal Filler and How It Works

For people who are ready to feel better, EPAT can make leg pain diminish, if not disappear, in as little as three weeks. These treatments take between five to 10 minutes and are performed in the comfort of a doctor’s office environment. These treatments have helped many people get back to playing their favorite sports, get back to their favorite activities, and just get back to feeling like themselves.

Understanding the Immediate Increases in Facial Fullness with Dermal Filler

Extracorporeal pulse activation technology is non-invasive. Since there are no incisions, no anesthesia is needed. It does not run the risk of infections, there is no risk of scarring, and there is no downtime. This means that a person can have these pain relieving treatments done and get right back to their everyday activities.

Using Dermal Fillers to Reverse the Natural Impacts of Aging

When a person has pain in their leg, especially in the lower part of their leg, it can be the result of inflammation of the tendon that goes from your calf to your heel. The pain is felt on the back of the ankle and seems to get worse when a person is walking. Or people may experience pain on the front of their leg. This happens because they are overusing their leg and the bone becomes inflamed. Or shin pain can be the result of a problem with the muscles or connective tissue. When a complete examination is done, it is usually seen that a person’s shoes are too tight or too loose, they are doing excessive training, or they are working out on a hard surface that has led to the pain. EPAT has helped individuals in these circumstances feel better fast.

Are You A Good Candidate For Dermal Fillers?

When a person experiences pain in their calf or pain in their ankle, they have a reduction in ankle mobility. When a person’s pain is in their shin, it’s worse when they first start exercising. The pain may actually push their foot down.

Dermal Filler Results and the Nature and Quality of Your Skin

EPAT is a non-invasive way to address pain. It uses pressure waves to force the metabolism to work better. It improves blood circulation, thereby increasing the rate of healing. Damaged tissue regenerates and heals. This is a great alternative to surgery and has helped many people to get back to living the quality of life they deserve. Many people feel that after EPAT, they have their life back. If the pain in your foot or leg is robbing you of joy, learn more about EPAT and see how it can help you live pain-free.
