os uteri, the organ must be restored to its normal position. This can
best be done by mechanical action. But it is most commonly occasioned by
irritation of the mucus membrane lining the interior cavity of the
uterus. Mucus surfaces, under chronic irritation, are electrically
negative. Therefore, in this case, if it be an old one, taking the A D
current, very mild force, apply the uterine electrode, N. P., to the
os uteri, and treat over the lower dorsal and upper lumbar vertebrae
with P. P., long cord. Treat five to eight minutes, three times a
But I should add, that recovery from this infirmity, when occasioned by
uterine irritation, will be much aided by commencing each sitting with
a general tonic treatment (see page 95), and closing with the
treatment just above prescribed.
The last described form of dysmenorrh[oe]a is sometimes attended with
spasmodic contraction of the os uteri, thus preventing the catamenial

P. to lower dorsal and upper lumbar vertebrae.
