Iontophoresis with acetic acid

Posted by BobH on 12/23/00 at 20:38 (035349)

Can anyone give me the name and phone or email of a skilled provider of Iontophoresis with acetic acid in the New England area? Experiences with that treatment would also be appreciated.

Hi Bob,
I have had this treatment. I hate to tell you it did nothing for me. It also use to burn my foot. Just be careful.I hope it will work for you. Merry Christmas. Laurie R

It could be a freaky one-time phenomenon, but I tried 'Hyland's Leg Cramps with Quinine', a homeopathic medicine. After one day, there was a noiceable improvement in my PF..... and NO leg or foot cramps last night! At 100 tablets for $6.99, I'm popping them like jelly bans. Has anyone else tried them or even heard of them?They're available in some health food stores.

Thanks. Laurie. I wonder why journal articles play it up big.

Quinine is used for noctural nite cramps. It is a classic for nite cramps.
There was an article in the New England Journal of Medicine years ago that compared Achilles stretching with Quinine for noctural nite cramps. The conclusion was that achilles tendon stretching was as effective. In my practice the use of Quinine is very effective for noctural nite cramping in the legs. The price looks good!
