Take the B D current, medium force. If the paralysis be in a lower limb,
place P. P., long cord, upon the lower lumbar vertebrae, so as to reach
the hypogastric plexus, and treat with the metallic brush, N. P., five
to eight minutes, over all the affected parts. Then close the sitting
with reversed poles, about one to two minutes, having P. P., long
cord, at the foot, and manipulating over the parts affected, and
especially over the lumbar vertebrae, with N. P. This is to prevent
depletion by running off the electro-vital fluid too much, and to
force the electric current through the nerves in an upward and inward
tonic-giving direction. If the disease be in an arm or hand, treat it in
a manner analogous to the above; extending the treatment from back of
neck to the affected parts.
In case of hemiplegia or paraplegia, run the current from the
healthy side of the spine, (in hemiplegia,) or from a healthy part
of the spine, (in paraplegia,) to and through the paralyzed parts, by
placing P. P., long cord, on spine, and manipulating with N. P.,
metallic brush commonly, upon the parts paralyzed. Close the treatment
with reversed poles for a moment or two, as in the preceding cases.
Old paralysis requires considerable time to cure it. Treat about
three times a week, occasionally omitting a week.
