ETPS or Electro-Therapeutic Point Stimulation, electrically locates and stimulates a specific series of treatment points (acupuncture, trigger and motor) which historically have been proven to help relieve chronic pain syndromes. After the treatment point has been located the unit delivers a special form of low frequency DC electrical stimulation reproducing the endorphin response achieved during traditional acupuncture needling without the use of needles.
Applying the ETPS 1000 to tightened and contracted muscles or treatment points “releases” the muscles and permits increased re-innervation of their neural pathways. This process allows the suffering person’s pain levels to be substantially decreased.
The ETPS unit has the ability to either increase or decrease the amount of circulation in the area of injury. To decrease the circulation would be similar to ice therapy and is most beneficial for pain control and reduction of swelling. To increase would be similar to heat therapy and is most beneficial for immune enhancement and neural regeneration.
ETPS is known to help with:
- Chronic Back Pain conditions,
- Repetitive Strain Injury’s like tennis elbow
- Tension or migraine headaches,
- Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
