ETPS (Neuro-Mechanical Acupuncture)
Electro Therapeutic Point Stimulation neuro-mechanical acupuncture therapy is a unique hybrid therapy combining the best of physical therapy, osteopathy, acupuncture, trigger point therapy, mobilization, and manual and myofascial release techniques. ETPS is a non-invasive integrated therapy that uses a Neurostimulator to apply very low doses of concentrated D/C (direct current – the current our body runs on) current to specific groups of acupuncture, trigger and motor points in order to isolate nerve impingement sites, myofascial restrictions and joint articulations responsible for the complaint..
Chronic pain originates with neuropathy, which is caused by muscle contraction. Most chronic pain stems from the core of the body, which consists of the gait — the hips, spine, and lumbar-sacral region. The cause of most migraines originates in the sacrum. Poor posture and repetitive strain creates a ‘pool’ of micro-injuries that build up over time to impinge the nerve root. Highly acidic foods such as soda pop, coffee, or orange juice create an acidic state in the body contributing to the tightening up of muscles.
ETPS starts by deregulating the autonomic nervous system in order to calm the client. Next, the therapist manually realigns the body, and then inspects for paraspinal tissue changes associated with nerve root impingement. Dermatomes, meridians, trigger, motor, and acupressure points relating to the client’s injury / pain are then integrated into step-by-step protocols in order to determine and eliminate root causes of the client’s pain condition. All without drugs, side effects or messy pads or gels.
