Galvanic mud therapy is a simultaneous effect on the body of therapeutic mud and electric current.

Therapeutic mud is an inunction like consistency of natural formations consisting of water, mineral and organic substances which have a high heat capacity and low thermal conductivity. There are three components in the therapeutic mud: the crystalline skeleton, colloidal complex and mud mortar.

 Under the influence of a direct current there are complex biophysical, biochemical and physiological changes undergoing in the body. 

Irritating the skin exteroreceptors, the DC has on the body focal, segmental and general reflex action in connection with inclusion in the response of the nervous, endocrine, cardiovascular and other systems. Under the influence of galvanization comes dermahemia, increases metabolism, changing the excitability of peripheral receptors, improving the conductivity of nerve fibers, regional blood circulation, accelerate the absorption of inflammatory processes.

Indications: cervical and lumbar osteochondrosis, traumatic neuritis, plexitis, autonomic neuropathy, ganglionitis, solar plexitis, polio, cerebral palsy, progressive muscular dystrophy, spinal arachnoiditis, a state after the removal of a hernia, intervertebral disc, etc.
