Treatment Modalities

We offer a variety of different treatment modalities to address your problem. From the most simple, traditional options to modern, state-of-the-art technology, we believe that access to the best medical care options should not be limited to crowded medical centers in big metropolitan areas.

Extracorporeal Pulse Activation Technology (EPAT) aka “Shockwave Therapy”

EPAT is an effective, non-invasive FDA-cleared treatment option for patients suffering from acute and chronic musculoskeletal pain. The technology distributes intense acoustic pressure waves through the use of a probe that stimulates increased cellular metabolism, enhances blood circulation as well as encourages gradual regeneration of damaged tissue.

We use EPAT to treat the following conditions:

  • Achilles’ tendinopathy (insertional and non-insertional)
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Shin splints
  • General tendinopathies (Anterior tibial, peroneal, etc).

Diagnostic Musculoskeletal Ultrasound (Static and Dynamic)

Ultrasound is the imaging modality of choice when evaluating many structures of the foot and ankle including tendons, ligaments, and peripheral nerves. The dynamic nature of the examination allows for detection of instability of both tendon and ligament, which may not be apparent on static imaging alone.

This is ideal for patients presenting with problems such as:

  • Chronic lateral ankle instability
  • Turf toe
  • Plantar plate instability or tears
  • Cysts, blisters, or hematomas
  • Soft tissue masses

Regenerative Medicine

We offer our patients several options regarding regenerative therapies for chronic issues that have been unresponsive to typical conservative therapies. This includes both autologous options such as platelet rich plasma (PRP) and bone marrow aspirate (BMAC) as well as allogenic options such as amniotic placental derived mesenchymal stem cells. We counsel patients one-on-one regarding the best regenerative approach appropriate for their specific issue. The following conditions are commonly treated:

  • Achilles’ tendinopathy
  • Plantar fasciopathy
  • Arthridities of the ankle and foot
  • Delayed union or non-union of fractures
  • Chronic wounds

Custom Orthotics

Our practice utilizes 3-D scanning technology paired with a comprehensive gait and biomechanical exam to prescribe custom orthotics. The orthotics are designed based upon your activity level, participation in sport, or the presence of any specific problems or deformity. We consult with multiple laboratories to develop a custom-fabricated orthotic of the highest quality, fitment, and functionality.
