This trouble is found in the double form;
first, of limbs which will not move when their owner desires to move
them; and, second, limbs moving in excessive jerks when they are not
desired to do so. These cases are often combined, the limbs being rigid
at one time and jerking violently at another. There is no wasting or
unhealthy appearance. We have found this condition caused by excessive
walking, running, and standing, combined with exposure to frequent
wettings. The result is, in essence, that motor power in the limbs is
in excess, while controlling power is defective: the case is indeed
similar to St. Vitus' Dance (see). Bathe the feet (see Bathing
Feet) in hot water, and apply cold towels folded and wrung out of cold
water (but not iced) along the spine. Keep this up for an
hour-and-a-half at a time. By that time the hard rigid feeling in the
limbs will probably have disappeared, but great helplessness will be
felt. You have removed the excess of motor energy, and must now
increase the voluntary energy. This will be accomplished by gently
rubbing the back and limbs with hot olive oil, as in Limbs, Drawn-up.
This treatment, repeated daily, will usually soon cure.
