Anyone have info about iontophoresis?

Posted by Lee H on 10/01/99 at 00:00 (011415)

I just finished 3 weeks of ultrasound with no success at all and now am trying a treatment called iontophoresis(sp?). Has anyone done this treatment? Any luck with it? Also, I am wondering if they are doing orthotripsy in the states. If so where? Does insurance cover it? Read up on it and it sounds like a great alternative to the surgery looming before me.

Paid out of pocket for it and didn't feel any banafits from it. Dulled pain for about 1-1/2 days. Should have dulled it for about a week.

I had eleven treatments of acetic acid iontophoresis with no pain relief.

Absoulutely no relief whatsoever! Waste of time.
