Neuromodulation is an invasive, safe, effective and practically painless technique.
The ultrasound-guided percutaneous neuromodulation technique or NPM® could be defined as the electrical stimulation of a peripheral nerve through an acupuncture-type needle guided at all times in an ultrasound way, placing the needle at some point in its nerve or muscle path at a motor point with a therapeutic objective.
The application is based on stimulation with a puncture needle associated with a low or medium frequency electrical current, seeking a sensory and/or motor response by stimulating the peripheral nerve, and achieving a motor response by stimulating the motor point.
Syncrolab physiotherapists are pioneers in the development of the technique based on the fundamentals of invasive physiotherapy techniques such as dry needling and neurofunctional acupuncture.
What objectives are sought with the technique?
The main goals of neuromodulation are:
Restore the function of the nervous system: peripheral, central, somatic, autonomic, sensory, motor, vascular, glandular and visceral.
Improve neuromuscular function, muscle recruitment patterns and motor control.
What are the clinical indications?
The application of ultrasound-guided percutaneous neuromodulation is indicated in a significant number of lesions of the neuromusculoskeletal system, such as:
- Chronic pain
- Joint instabilities
- Segmental dysfunctions of the spine
- Herniated with radiculopathy
- Nervous entrapments
- Muscle tears
How is the technique?
Local and safe application (directly on the area near the nerve / muscle and without risk thanks to ultrasound).
Personalized technique (we adapt the technique to each patient).
Applied by physiotherapists who are experts in percutaneous neuromodulation and ultrasound.
Scientifically endorsed. Our results back us up.
With the help of the most advanced technology, the best musculoskeletal ultrasound equipment thanks to the collaboration of DJO Global.
