Newsletter February 2020
Dear reader,
Over the past 2 years, our physiotherapist Javier Valenzuela, attended and successfully completed a training about joint ultrasound and EPTE (Percutaneous Electrolysis Therapy). This new treatment method for acute and long-term, poorly recovering muscle and tendon complaints has been developed recently in Spain and is now widely used by top athletes, recreational athletes and anyone with muscle and tendon complaints.
This month Javier would like to inform you about this treatment.
Kind regards,
Bernadette Veeger
What is EPTE?
EPTE is the most innovative technique developed in Spain, which has been successfully used for acute and chronic tendonitis for the past 10 years. The treatment with Percutaneous Electrolysis Therapy is fast, effective and involves minimal pain for the patient. When the EPTE treatment is applied, it will shorten recovery time and minimize treatment costs.

With ultrasound, the exact location of the tendon or muscle problem and its severity is determined. An acupuncture needle is then inserted (percutaneously). It conducts a current in the core of the problem area for about two minutes. The low intensity galvanic current triggers a number of physiological processes that lead to the production of new tendon tissue. This improves blood circulation and changes the PH value from acid to neutral.
When is EPTE applied?
EPTE can be used in all the following conditions:
  • Acute and chronic muscle tears
  • Myofascial pain syndrome
  • Chronic and acute tendon problems
  • Tendosinovitis
  • Fasciitis plantaris
  • Morton´s neuroma
  • Scars
  • Ganglions
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Ankle sprains
  • Chronic periostitis/ tibial periostitis
  • Ankle impingement syndrome
  • Femoro acetabular impingement syndrome
  • Lesion of the medial ligament of the knee
What are the benefits of using EPTE?
The EPTE percutaneous electrolysis therapy is a technique that activates the first phase in any regenerative process, which has stopped in all tendinopathies. The process of electrolysis destroys degenerated tissue and induces a natural inflammation that is necessary for regeneration of healthy tissue.
Normally you need 3 to 4 treatments for chronic problems and 1-2 for acute problems. The second treatment is 1 week after the first, and the third and fourth session are after a 2 weeks interval.
