Percutaneous Electrolysis is a mini-invasive technique that consists of the ultrasound-guided application of a very low intensity galvanic current through a disposable acupuncture needle that produces a local inflammatory process allowing phagocytosis and repair of the affected soft tissue (tendon, ligament, muscle, etc.).  It is performed with an electrolysis machine.


What are the benefits compared to other treatments?


- It is a local treatment at the site of the injury. With the help of ultrasound it is applied directly on the altered and/or degenerated tissue.


- It manages to repair the affected tissue, being able to start a new process of proliferation of collagen tissue that is unstructured in these processes.


- The modifications in the structure and in the mechanobiological behavior of the soft tissue are immediate and in real time.


The effectiveness is high (around 80%) compared to conservative treatments (ultrasound, laser, Cyriax Approach, diacutaneous fibrolysis, shock waves, etc.). The frequency of relapses is low.




- Tendinosis/ tendinitis refractory to conventional conservative treatment, being a real alternative to conventional rehabilitation sessions.


- Scar therapy (painful scars or scars adhered to deep planes) in patients who have undergone surgery.
