EPTE is the Dutch abbreviation for Ultrasoundguided Percutaneous Electrolysis Therapy. This is a treatment method that, as an addition, can be used for various long-term tendon complaints of the shoulder, elbow, knee and ankle. For an EPTE treatment, the location and nature of the complaint is first mapped out by means of a functional examination and ultrasound.
In an EPTE treatment, a thin needle is accurately inserted into the tissue under ultrasound guidance. After this, electricity is returned via the needle to the core of the problem area. The mild form of electricity can initiate multiple processes that improve tissue repair.
The effects of the treatment are caused by various processes that occur in the treated area. It has been shown that there is an improvement in blood circulation and an increased PH value, which promotes the production and repair of tendon tissue.
For an EPTE therapy treatment you can visit our therapists: Paul and Wibbo.
We offer EPTE therapy at our Schellingwoude and Amstelkwartier practice locations.

We charge additional costs for the EPTE treatments in addition to the costs for the physiotherapy treatment.
