Iontophoresis

When muscles and tendons are swollen or sore, iontophoresis is sometimes used by physical therapists. In the process, electrodes for a machine produce a small electric current which is placed over a drug. When the current is on, the drugs are pushed away from the electrodes and directly into the body.

It helps the body to remove any extra fluid in the injured area.
