Electro Point Stimulation
A Non-Needle Approach to Acu and Trigger Point Therapy
The Benefits of Acupuncture Without Needles!
Electro Point Stimulation (EPS) pain management technique uses a fine probe (NO needles like Traditional Acupuncture or Trigger Point Dry Needling) that generates brief, continuous electric impulses. This treats headaches, sciatica, and radicular pain in the upper and lower extremities from spinal nerve compression, and relieves pain in trigger points, which are hypersensitive areas of muscle or connective tissues (also called muscle knots), by stimulating the muscle fibers at a high level that’s still tolerable by the patient. EPS opens neural pathways, stimulates the endocrine system for better health, releases endorphins and serotonin, and in some cases, treats insomnia and depression. It is used on Olympic athletes to treat pain and improve performance. Electro Point Stimulation is safe, noninvasive, measures progress, and can be more effective than Trigger Point Dry Needling in some conditions.
EPS can be used in place of needles to perform a variation of Dematomal Trigger Point Dry Needling (DTDN) known as Dermatomal Trigger Point Electrical Stimulation.
