Tendinopathies or tendon lesions, which until recently were associated with tendinitis, account for around 35% of occupational diseases in EU countries, from 30 to 50% of athletes are affected by this type of Pathologies, as well as 5% of the sedentary population, being affected a high percentage of the patients who come to the clinics of the physiotherapists.

Percutaneous Electrolysis has proven to be a very effective technique in the treatment of this type of injuries. There are several percutaneous electrolysis devices on the market. Among them, EPTE® stands out due to its advantages for patients and health professionals:

1. EPTE® has a CE Mark certification for Medical Device

Do you know what is a CE Mark certification for Medical Device? EPTE® Percutaneous Electrolysis is a safe technique, evaluated by the european competent authorities that certify that it does not take any risk when used on people and that iits use has several health benefits, instead.

EPTE® has a CE Mark certification for Medical Device for the application of percutaneous electrolysis as an invasive technique; this technique uses needles and galvanic current measured in microamps that are beneficial for the treatment of tendon injuries.

2. Percutaneous Electrolysis almost painless

The EPTE® percutaneous electrolysis current does not hurt. Microcurrents have the same effect as high currents, but without pain (according to the first law of Faraday’s Electrolysis, which explains this phenomenon). Hundreds of patients in physiotherapy clinics throughout Spain, including elite athletes, treated with percutaneous electrolysis, have confirmed it.

3. Made in Spain not China

The EPTE® electrotherapy device is fully developed and manufactured in Spain. It is a technique that quickly managed to build its own market and is already a noticeable improvement in the world of physiotherapy.

4. Percutaneous Electrolysis is specific for physiotherapists

As already mentioned, it is a high percentage of patients affected by tendinopathies who come to the clinic of their physiotherapist suffering from some tendinopathy, some even chronic. A lot of these lesions are associated with tendinitis, but in most cases there are no inflammatory cells. These tendinitis can find a quick solution due the application of percutaneous electrolysis for therapeutic purposes. Most are associated with what was previously considered tendonitis, but in most cases there are no inflammatory cells. The prestigious British Medical Journal noted that the low incidence of inflammation in the tendons could leave the existence of tendinitis in a myth.

It is the physiotherapist who, with the aid of an ultrasound to guide the process, induces percutaneous electrolysis in the damaged tissue to achieve a self-regeneration. Do you know what are the 5 reasons why you should visit a physiotherapist?

5. Reduces recovery times

Professionals who use EPTE® percutaneous electrolysis to ensure that their patients are rejoining their activity in a matter of weeks. With other treatments the injury could last for months. This treatment has advantages because the pain of the patient disappears and can be used on sportsmen and athletes of high competition. This technique can ensure them the return to their normal activity before the competition without complications.

6. Scientifically proven

EPTE® percutaneous electrolysis is scientifically approved. Recently, a study has been published and it demonstrates the efficacy of EPTE® percutaneous electrolysis therapy in the treatment of injuries: “(…) the efficacy of percutaneous therapeutic electrolysis and eccentric exercises in the treatment of injuries in the supraspinatus,” professors José Luis Arias, Jaime Salom, César Fernández de las Peñas and Sebastián Truyols.

7. The success of the Percutaneous Electrolysis Technique

Hundreds of physiotherapists use EPTE® and all of them are totally satisfied with the ease of use of the EPTE® Percutaneous Electrolysis device. Many of them make their results public through their personal social networks like Facebook.

The recovery is quick and the application painless. EPTE® also provides a cost reduction for both the patient and the therapist.

8. A quick and simple treatment

The device is lightweight for ease of use and transport. It is powered by 3 batteries that guarantee power up to 3 thousand treatments. It is fast and usually only 3 approaches per session are required that last no more than a couple of minutes. Awesome, right?

9. Percutaneous Electrolysis is safe

EPTE® therapeutic electrotherapy device features inlet and outlet current controllers to ensure the patient’s electrical safety. Another of the improvements of this EPTE ® percutaneous electrolysis device is the use of an approximate surface electrode to treat the pathology so that it minimizes the necessary electrical risks.

NOTE: The treatment with Percutaneous Electrolysis does not require the use of drugs.

10. Percutaneous Electrolysis training  

The EPTE® courses are held in several countries including Spain, Portugal, Mexico, Italy, Netherland and taught by prestigious physiotherapy teachers.

For these reasons and thanks to our vast experience, when we ask a physiotherapist who knows about the treatment of injuries with Percutaneous Electrolysis, which is the best percutaneous electrolysis technique, there is no doubt that EPTE® effectively solves the needs of each of them in treating their patients that suffer from this type of injuries.
