What is ECP/EECP Therapy?

External Counter Pulsation (ECP) Therapy has been proven, through hundreds of clinical trials, to be a safe and effective treatment for patients with a variety of medical conditions.

ECP Therapy provides a wide range of health and wellness benefits this is achieved by enhancing the delivery of oxygenated rich blood throughout the entire body. The mechanical process of ECP Therapy systematically restores nourishment to areas of the body that have slowly deteriorated over time with age.

The enhanced supply of oxygen-rich blood flow to your entire body, will result in a noticeable improvement in the function of the heart, liver, kidneys, brain, eyes, muscles, tendons, ligaments, skin and all your outer extremities that need nutrients for sustaining efficient function in overall health and wellness. ECP rehabilitation therapy also aids the rehabilitation process for muscle, ligament and tendon injuries of the body. ECP Therapy treatments are low risk, relaxing and provide significant improvement to virtually every patient that completes a full course of 35 sessions.

How does ECP/EECP Therapy work?

During ECP Therapy, pressure cuffs are wrapped firmly around the calves, thighs, and buttocks. The cuffs inflate and deflate between each heart beat this increases oxygen- rich blood supply that is delivered to the heart muscle.

The external counter pulse also increases pre-load, or the volume of venous (used) blood flow that is returned to the heart. Ultimately, this helps to increase the amount of blood circulated through the cardiovascular system each minute. The effects of ECP Therapy help to increase the amount of oxygen absorbed by the heart muscle and perfusion of other vital organs.
