In the battle against chronic pain, ETPS has proven an outstandingly successful intervention. Because this method yields such outstanding results, full or significant pain alleviation may often occur after just one or two treatments in most cases. This is due to the fact that the method targets the source of the problem. The majority of patients take anything from two to ten sessions to get lasting effects, while some chronic patients require continued treatments in the comfort of their own homes. ETPS may be customized to meet the requirements of every patient and is administered in a painless and needle-free manner.
ETPS protocols span a wide variety of treatment philosophies in order to give therapeutic responses in circumstances in which other treatment methods are unable to obtain good outcomes. ETPS treatment has the potential to be a very helpful instrument in the fight against pain as a result of its efficacy in determining the factors that underlie it.
Among the numerous advantages of ETPS treatment are the following:
- Elimination or decrease of painful sensations
- A calming effect on both the body and the psyche
- Reduced levels of stress and anxiety Increased levels of blood circulation Increased levels of energy
- Helps in digestion as well as the elimination of toxins
- enhanced performance of the body’s internal organs
- Freeing oneself from harmful routines and addictive behaviors
- a heightened feeling of general health and happiness
- Reduces the formation of scar tissue while also promoting improved structural alignment
What exactly is an ETPS?
Electro Therapeutic Point Stimulation is a non-invasive integrated therapy that uses a Neurostimulator to apply very low doses of concentrated D/C (direct current – the current that our body runs on) to specific groups of acupuncture, trigger, and motor points. This therapy is integrated because it uses a Neurostimulator to apply the D/C (direct current – the current that our body runs on). NO NEEDLES!
The Neurostimulator is a battery-operated, hand-held gadget that may find acupoints by registering variations in the surface skin resistance of the patient’s skin. After the acupoint has been found, a safe electrical stimulation with a low frequency is applied and maintained on it in order to induce the production of endorphins. Instantaneous and potentially long-lasting pain alleviation is provided.
ETPS is well tolerated and may be used to treat chronic pain, such as that caused by arthritis, back difficulties, carpal tunnel syndrome, fibromyalgia, headaches, lockjaw, lower back pain, migraines, neck & shoulder pain, sports injuries, tennis elbow, whiplash, and other conditions.
What factors contribute to ongoing pain?
Neuropathy, which is brought on by prolonged muscular contraction, is the root cause of chronic pain. The majority of chronic pain originates from the central part of the body, which includes the hips, spine, and lumbar-sacral area of the body.
Poor posture and repetitive strain both contribute to the development of a “pool” of micro-injuries, which, over time, might result in an impingement of the nerve root. The consumption of highly acidic foods like soda pop, coffee, and orange juice contributes to an acidic condition in the body, which in turn contributes to the contraction of the muscles.
Sometimes the neurological system is disrupted by chronic pain, causing it to remain in a state of continual pain even after the original injury has been repaired. Because of this imbalance, people who live with chronic pain often experience mental discomfort as well, which makes the pain even more intolerable.
How does ETPS work?
The ETPS integrates Eastern and Western medical practices by using acupuncture, neuromuscular and neurological treatments, as well as trigger points located in the musculoskeletal system.
The neurological system receives assistance from ETPS in the control of muscular spasms, the regulation of the body temperature, and the correct dilatation of blood vessels. It helps to harmonize the sympathetic and parasympathetic nerve systems, which are responsible for “fight or flight” and “rest and digestion,” respectively.
The ETPS device may really modify the tissue of the muscles, which helps relax the muscles that are compressing the nerves and gives the body the ability to naturally treat its own pain for extended periods of time.
The ETPS therapy is successful in determining the underlying reasons for a patient’s discomfort; the following four concepts underlie the therapeutic effects of the treatment:
- Circulation response – increasing or decreasing as required
- Autonomic/parasympathetic response – ‘gates’ in the ANS (Autonomic Nervous System), which covers 90% of the body
- Endorphin response – released by stimulation of neural points and is a thousand times stronger than morphine without side effects
- Myofascial release – relax contracted muscles to relieve interference of the nerves, reduce over-sensitivity and improve ROM (range of motion)
- Scar Therapy – scars throughout the dermatomes and meridians can restrict the flow of energy, disrupt the lymphatic and circulatory systems and interfere with muscle energy
