Rheumatism Chronic





Category: PRESCRIPTIONS.
Source: A Newly Discovered System Of Electrical Medication

Use the A D current always in rheumatic affections. If there be no
visible inflammation or swelling in the diseased parts, approach such
parts in the same manner as in acute inflammatory rheumatism, except
with reversed poles. The parts affected require to come under the N.
P. rather than the P. P., and to be treated with considerable force.
There are apparently exceptional cases, referred to on page 83, which
see.

Where joints are being dislocated, treat the parts with N. P., quite
mild force, so long as it can be done without exciting acute
inflammation. If this should arise, it must be repressed with P. P.

Treat chronic rheumatism about three times a week.
