Well...... This one is becoming extinct rather quickly! Ionto has been used for years w poor research to back it up. Recently, Medicare & Medicaid dropped payment & many commercial insurers are doing the same.

Clinical view: some folks got real relief from ionto, but the key was to stop the inflammation & retrain the person from the biomechanical stress that caused the usually overuse injury.

The only current paid coverage is for hyperhydrosis - excess armpit sweat cool.gif

Had folks been better about research & peer review, we might have seen this continuing....

Yeah, we went back today and apparently they aren't going to use it. Don't know why, whether it was insurance, doctor, or changed mind. We had a different pt last week, the one today did something else.
