Trismus Lockjaw

Sources: A Newly Discovered System Of Electrical Medication

For traumatic trismus, use the B D current, of vigorous force. Let the

wound be kept open and clear, except that soothing emollients may be

applied. Place N. P. at the coccyx, or near it on the spine; and then

treat, by firm but momentary touches of the P. P., over the lower

maxillary--pterygoid--muscles and nerves; indeed, over the entire

lower jaw and its articulations. Treat five to ten minutes, if

necessary, or until the jaws relax.
