    CHICAGO, IL, July 02, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Dr. Marc Feder and the Chicago podiatrists of Affiliated Podiatrists, LTD. see patients daily with chronic heel pain. The common condition can impair one's ability to do normal daily activities and without proper treatment may get worse. Unfortunately, many treatments for heel pain have been ineffective in eliminating the pain entirely or have offered only temporary results; until now that is.

Extracorporeal Pulse Activation Treatment (EPAT) is an FDA-approved, non-invasive therapy for heel pain. The new treatment has a high success rate with more than 80 percent of patients reporting less pain or complete pain elimination after undergoing EPAT. To administer the treatment, your Chicago podiatrist will deliver acoustic pressure waves to the source of pain to improve circulation of the damaged tissue and promote the body's own, natural healing process. Each treatment session takes approximately 15 minutes, and most patients require three sessions until full results are attained. Other benefits of Near North EPAT include no injections, no incisions, immediate weight bearing, no side effects and a faster healing time.

"Chronic heel pain is a real, debilitating foot problem experienced by many of our patients. Thanks to new EPAT, patients can finally experience complete and lasting pain relief without undergoing lengthy treatments or surgery. It's safe, fast and the results are long-lasting, making this an ideal solution for anyone looking for complete relief from heel pain," said Dr. Marc Feder, Chicago podiatrist.

In addition to heel pain, the Chicago podiatrists at Affiliated Podiatrists, LTD. treat many other foot and ankle conditions including athletes foot, arthritis, corns, calluses, bunions, toenail fungus, ingrown toenails, hammertoes, flat feet, diabetic foot infections and many more. With a strong commitment to foot and ankle health, Drs. Marc Feder, Joel Feder, Harold Feder and Jason Kalk have been serving patients in the Chicago area for more than three decades.
