IONOPHORESIS (Electrotherapy)

Ionophoresis is type of electrotherapy that brings pharmacological substances into tissues thanks to a unidirectional direct electric current.
It is based on the ionic disassociation capacity of certain low molecular weight medical substances once they are dissolved in water.
It is of fundamental importance to know whether the active part of the medicine is positively or negatively charged once it has been disassociated in ionic form, in order to be able to position it correctly on the basis of the electric flow.
The medicine's ions are transferred inside of the organism through the skin areas that have low resistance to current, in order to reach the cell membranes, which are consequently changed electrically.
