Electrical Stimulation Therapy Using Russian Current

    • April 30, 2010 at 3:15 pm

      My Physical Therapist asked me if I ever had or knew about the above. It involves the use of pads on the muscle belly of the legs, etc., to prevent atrophy. I almost laughed when he said “Russian Current” but then realized it was a Russian team that did the experiments. The Google search revealed some info but it was garbled in translation. Can anyone shed some light on this subject?

      Thanks for bringing this up. I have heard of light therapy that sounds similar, but I’d love to hear more about the USSR style!
