The Basis for Micro Current Electrical Therapy in Conventional Medical
The use of electricity in medicine is not new. Clinicians used it over 150 years ago to treat nonunion bone fractures. Electomedicine and nutrition, abandoned early in this century, have been recently revived. Most physicians are unaware of their therapeutic benefits. Electrotherapy, especially micro current electrical therapy (MET) is useful for a variety of clinical conditions. Indeed, it may be the best treatment for many pain-related disorders, providing fast relief of symptoms and quickly promoting healing. It has significantly less side effects than drugs in chronic conditions. The more advanced MET devices can often demonstrate effectiveness with a simple two minute office procedure, allowing validity to be quickly assessed.
