Galvanic bath is an alternative medical treatment (a type of electrotherapy). Water and a gentle electrical current are the components of this treatment, carried out in a bath at a temperature of 34°C whilst electricity is passed through the body. The treatment lasts about 15 minutes.
The electric current has a tranquillising effect for cases of agitated nerves. This makes the treatment suitable for all conditions of pain in the motor organs, in particular degenerative diseases, inflammatory arthritis and joint problems. It also has a positive effect on improving the metabolism of the tissues, the shrinking of oedemas and reducing pain and spasticity.
