sufficient literature data exists, indicating that electrotherapy can also be used to positively affect local
circulation in the area it is applied to. The increased flow of arterial blood, venous blood and lymph
results in better tissue oxygenation, faster removal of metabolic byproducts and better balancing of
extracellular fluid. As a result of all these effects, it is possible to achieve reduction of both acute and
chronic edema, enhance tissue repair and speed up wound healing. Finally, in the form of iontophoresis,
electrical currents can be used as a means of delivering pharmacological agents to a targeted area. This
helps concentrate the medicine where it’s needed and completely bypasses the usual medicine routes
of delivery through the gastrointestinal and circulatory system.
