We have started using a type of shock wave therapy called Extracorporeal Pulse Activation Technology or EPAT®.  We use EPAT specifically for post Morton’s neuroma surgery pain. EPAT has recently been shown to be quite effective when used in Morton’s neuroma. Extracorporeal Pulse Activation Technology uses high frequency sound waves that are directed at the neuroma to help breakdown scar tissue and promote healing.
