Percutaneous Electrolysis

Percutaneous Electrolysis Course: Program EPTE®

Percutaneous Electrolysis Therapy (or EPTE®) is a technique for the treatment of different tendinopathies. EPTE® uses micro-currents (μA) applied via an acupuncture needle, to reach the tendon and produce an electrolysis phenomenon. The process of electrolysis destroys degenerated tissue and enhances a controlled inflammatory response in order to induce the natural recovery of the damaged structure. Hundreds of professionals are now using Percutaneous Electrolysis Therapy in their treatments, with optimal results. Following research findings and our experience, EPTE® can be considered a…

Treatment of tendinopathies with EPTE® Percutaneous Electrolysis

Percutaneous Electrolysis is a non-invasive technique. It is the application of low voltage electrical current in order to cause the wanted biological response. Electrostimulation has been used for years to treat all kind of illnesses and diseases and to prevent and to improve the sporting performance. In the market, there are several low-frequency muscular electro stimulators with different characteristics, applications, and results. The difference with EPTE® is in the injury’s regenerative process. With EPTE® it is much more effective and faster.…

5 things you should know about electrolysis (most of all, if you are a physio!)

EPTE Percutaneous Electrolysis Percutaneous, has had a great succes in the last years. However, electrolysis is not a new thing. It was discovered in the 19th century. Its therapeutical applications and research started 30 years ago. The electrolysis was fortuitously discovered by the english chemist William Nicholson in the 1800 while we was studying the electrical processes in the batteries. The electrolysis laws were developed some years later by the famous chemist and physicist Michael Faraday. The electrolysis is a physical…
