It started when Melzack and Wall published their theory of pain. But contrary to most researchers, the author looked for a proof which objectively could demonstrate, that electric current would have an influence on nerve fibers conducting pain. Starting from this model of demonstration, an optimal type of current could be selected as well as optimal electrode positions and sizes of electrodes. It is an absolute new approach presenting the results of applying the type of current to more than 17.000 patients suffering from any kind of pain. Anatomic sketches and photo-documentation of electrode positions for many conditions allow the reader to obtain identical degree of pain reduction as the author describes from his great experience. In addition, a brief theoretical introduction and discussion of the influence of weather on pain is given. Practical forms for the management of pain are presented in an appendix. 256 references and a table of suitable apparatus with their essential technical characteristics facilitates correct application of this new principle.
