The technique of Ultrasound-guided Percutaneous Neuromodulation is defined as the electrical stimulation of a peripheral nerve or a motor point of a muscle using an acupuncture needle under ultrasound guidance for therapeutic purposes (Valera & Minaya, 2016).

It is essential for the safety and effectiveness of the treatment that this technique is applied under ultrasound control.

The therapy involves the stimulation with an acupuncture needle combined with a low or medium-frequency electric current to induce a sensory and/or motor response by stimulating the peripheral nerve and thus obtaining a motor response through the stimulation of a motor point (Valera & Minaya, 2016).

What are the therapeutic objectives of the technique? The main objectives of neuromodulation are:

  1. Reducing pain by modifying the pain threshold.
  2. Restoring the function of the nervous system at peripheral, central, somatic, autonomic, sensory, motor, vascular, glandular, and visceral levels.
  3. Improving 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 neuromusculoskeletal system lesions, such as:

  1. Chronic pain.
  2. Joint instabilities.
  3. Segmental dysfunctions of the spine.
  4. Disc herniation associated with radiculopathy.
  5. Nerve entrapments.
  6. Muscle tears.
  7. Tendinopathies.

How does a neuromodulation treatment take place?

  1. Local and precise application (directly near the nerve/muscle and with no risks thanks to ultrasound control).
  2. Personalized technique (adapted to each patient).
  3. Individualized treatment.
  4. Administered by physiotherapists trained in Ultrasound-guided Percutaneous Neuromodulation and ultrasound.
  5. Scientifically approved. Our results support us.
  6. With the help of the most advanced technology, the best musculoskeletal ultrasound equipment.
