Two pairs of glands, lying behind and in close relationship to the lateral lobes of the thyroid gland, are known as the parathyroid glands. They appear in some way to influence calcium metabolism in the body, and when they are removed or diseased a nervous disorder, known as tetany, supervenes.
Parathyroid extract is sometimes used by hypodermic injection.
Application and treatment:
Electrode pad applications as in thyroid applications. This involves placing one pad on either side of the area, and applying very low output for 15 to 30 minutes to clear up most problems acute or chronic. Follow with standard treatments. See: Thyroid.
