Percutaneous Electrolysis intratissue (EPI)

Intratissue Percutaneous Electrolysis (EPI)

EPI is an ultrasound-guided physiotherapeutic and medical technique that produces a non-thermal electrochemical ablation using a cathode flow directly oriented toward the injured tendon, muscle, ligament and scar injuries.

The EPI technique consists of the ultrasound-guided application of a specifically designed and controlled continuous current that causes an electrochemical reaction only in the degenerated area of the treated tissue. This current is applied through a percutaneous insertion and requires no incision. The primary objective is to produce highly controlled inflammatory response. This activates the cell mechanisms involved in phagocytosis and the repair/regeneration of affected tissue.

EPI is currently utilized within a few top English Premier League Football Clubs medical services like Tottenham Hotspur, Liverpool F.C or Chelsea FC. Daniel Marti, PSMC director, has trained with Dr Sanchez and Dr Abat in Barcelona (Spain) and is a EPI Advanced Medicine® certified practitioner and fellow. PSMC is a UK pioneer in offering EPI in private practice.

EPI has proved to be effective in the short term (6 weeks from baseline) in patellar tendinosis, achilles tendinosis, plantar fasciatis or lateral epicondylitis.
