MS Patients Improve with High-Tone Electrotherapy

Treatment for Multiple Sclerosis




Research from Poland’s Department of Rehabilitation and Physical Medicine, in Lodz, has determined that a pulsed-frequency electrotherapy treatment can significantly improve the functional abilities of multiple sclerosis patients.

The researchers tested 20 multiple sclerosis patients randomly divided into two groups. For 60 minutes, one group was given the frequency therapy and the other underwent exercise therapy. The frequency therapy group showed improvement in nine of 10 different evaluation tests of each patient.

The patented High Tone Frequency technique was developed by Dr. Hans-Ulrich May, a professor of medical engineering from Germany’s University of Karlsruhe.
