Sinusoidal Current


from Dr JH Kellogg's Hydriatic Techniques...

Induction current; includes Faradic and Bipolar currents

Faradic: electric current used mainly for stimulating innervated muscle, consists of pulsed DC current (frequency of 50-100 Hz, duration 1 millisecond) surged up every 5-10 seconds to reproduce normal muscle contractions

Fluxion and Stimulating

Effects similar but not as strong as cathodal Galvanic Current, with cold


As strong as possible. Sinusoidal or Faradic with very hot Fomentations (slight pain when first applied) 15-20min in:


Rubbing Cold Tub Bath 25°C, 10-15min, accentuated by simultaneous slowly alternating Sinusoidal to get strong muscle contractions, 6/min - 3 sets of electrodes - the arms, the legs, the back and abdomen in



from Dr GK Abbott's Prescriptions...

Slow current through a stationary spinal electrode with labile abdominal sponge

  • stimulates abdominal muscles and vasomotors reflexly
