Osborne and Allison (2006) determined if, in the short-term, acetic acid and DEX iontophoresis combined with LowDye (low-Dye) taping are effective in treating the symptoms of plantar fasciitis. A total of 31 patients with medial calcaneal origin plantar fasciitis were recruited from 3 sports medicine clinics. All subjects received 6 treatments of iontophoresis to the site of maximum tenderness on the plantar aspect of the foot over a 2-week period, continuous LowDye taping during this time, and instructions on stretching exercises for the gastrocnemius/soleus.

Iontophoresis facilitates delivery of medications into the tissues beneath the skin by electronic transport of ionized drugs in solution. Acetic acid iontophoresis is effective in the treatment of heel pain. Iontophoresis of dexamethasone for plantar fasciitis should be considered when more immediate results are needed. Iontophoresis has also been used to successfully treat plantar hyperhidrosis.
