Using acetic Iontophoresis for treatment

I'm trying to find out as much as possible about this method as treatment. What % and did it work?

I don't know what % was used when I had this treatment, but the rationale was that the acetic acid (vinegar!) was supposed to make the spurs smaller. Don't know if the spurs shrank, but the pain pretty much remained the same.
