EPTE

EPTE® or PERCUTANEOUS ELECTROLYSIS THERAPY

The treatment of tendinopathy is a clinical challenge that some authors describe as one of the biggest problems in sports medicine. It usually presents with pain in the tendon, tenderness and reduced function.

The treatment with Percutaneous Electrolysis Therapy it’s fast, effective, and involves minimal pain for the patient. It shortens recovery times and minimises treatment costs

EPTE is an ultrasound- guided physiotherapeutic and medical technique that produces a non-thermal electrochemical ablation using a cathode flow directly oriented toward the tendinopathy / degeneration. EPTE treatment induces body’s own healing reaction in the treated area that produces localized inflammation, exclusively in the treatment zone, that leads to rapid recovery of injured tendon. The low-intensity micro-currents are usually not felt by the patient.

The working hypothesis is that EPTE combined with eccentric exercises improves the clinical aspect and functionality in tendinopathy over a short period of time.

EPTE ® is effective for treating tendinopathies in all types of patients, from elite athletes and professional sportspeople to people presenting with everyday injuries.

 

Benefits of using EPTE ®?

The process of electrolysis induces a natural inflammatory that is necessary for regeneration of healthy tissue.
