Intratissue percutaneous electrolysis, or EPI®, is a minimally invasive technique used in physiotherapy which sets in motion a series of mechanisms that remodel and regenerate tissue. It is a type of complementary therapy..
An acupuncture needle is inserted into the injured area or area which the therapist wishes to treat, and a galvanic current is introduced into the tissue via the needle.
What conditions can be treated with EPI?
EPI® may be performed in order to relieve pain related to:
• Muscle strain
• Myofascial pain and trigger points
• Ligament injuries
Studies completed in Spain, where the treatment was developed, show that damaged tissue has the potential to be treated through EPI® by causing an organic reaction that produces localized inflammation, exclusively in the treatment zone, that leads to a rapid regeneration of injured tendon tissue.
EPI treatment makes phagocytosis and the repair of the affected tissue. As shown in the research, electrolysis combined with eccentrics, high load isometrics and other techniques has brought about a notable improvement in tendon pain.
