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.
