Effectiveness of iontophoresis of anti-inflammatory medications in the treatment of common musculoskeletal inflammatory conditions: a systematic review

Hamann, Herb; Hodges, Martin; Evans, Bridget

Iontophoresis of anti-inflammatory medication is a treatment option for many common inflammatory conditions of the musculoskeletal system. The medical rationale of applying anti-inflammatory medication to inflamed target tissues is medically sound, but some clinicians are reluctant to use iontophoresis for delivery of anti-inflammatory medication.  This systematic review of the studies of iontophoresis of anti-inflammatories in the treatment of musculoskeletal pathologies used a modified Guyatt tool to assess current clinical investigations.
