ETPS or electro therapy

While your welcome to read below. I gave this alternative treatment a real chance (1hr/day for 30+days) with no positive (or negative?)change. I'm moving on to more traditional treatments lie R.T. I can say that this "acupuncture like" treatment can help with the arthritis associated with dups...

I'm 47 and have had 5 na and 1 regular surgery. Trying to find another solution as the likelihood of usable hands in 10+ years is fading if I say on same path.

Started seeing an acupuncturist about other issues - he uses a device called etps 1000 - it's essentially a pen that emits a micro current or electro-therapy. The intent of the device is to relax tightened muscles. I figured it's worth a try. It's been two weeks and hands seem to vary a bit from day to day so still deciding if it's having a positive impact. I know there is ALOT of fascia in my hands and fingers so not expecting overnight miracles. What it does help with, in the short term, is the muscle tightness in the back of the hand that leads to arthritis. I am hopeful that with continued usage the fascia will slowly break up.

Anyone out there ever try this or have thoughts about this?

Started this in August 1st and am now combining with massage. Have pictures - will keep you informed of any outcome.


Thanks,
Dave

Re: ETPS or electro therapy

Spitz07,

Missed your post back in August. I never had the procedures you refer to. I have had NA and RT and both were effective for the disease in my hand.

Do you have an update?
