plantar f. treatment - does iontophorosis help?

Posted by peggy r on 3/13/04 at 22:12 (146904)

Having been told I have either p.f. or achilles tendonitis, I was referred to physical therapy, where they are doing iontophoris....and pt does not speek much English so hard to ask her questions. Will this work?

I like this for achilles tendonitis. It places a local steriod into the area of pain and swelling

peggy:
Ionto is helpful as an adjunctive treatment when combined with a comprehensive treatment plan for PF.
