The treatment with Percutaneous Electrolysis Therapy involves applying a modulated direct electrical current directly to damaged soft tissue via an acupuncture needle, inducing the tissue’s recovery. Percutaneous Electrolysis Therapy induces our body’s own healing reaction in the treated area. Using EPTE ®’s intensity modulator (μA/ cm2) you can produce a controlled inflammation, necessary for the recovery of the tendinopathy. The low-intensity micro-currents are usually not felt by the patient.

What are the benefits of using EPTE ®?

The EPTE ® percutaneous electrolysis therapy it’s a technique that activates the first phase in any regenerative process, which has stopped in all tendinopathies.
