Nordenstrom proved that
disease and injury cause charge to be formed in affected
deep soft tissue. And for healing to occur, the charge
must be eliminated, either by the body itself, or with
external electrical current. If the charge of injury is
not dissipated, scar tissue forms, leading to restricted
range of motion which can become permanent.
Nordenstrom showed that
chronic pain is often sourced in old injuries to deep
soft tissue, where the charge is stored rather than
released. The ARP penetrates low-voltage current deep
enough into soft tissue to dissipate charge of injury
without surface pain.
Dr. Yakov Kots,
considered by many to be the innovator of electrical
stimulation used in athletics, believed that you have to
have high voltage with lots of power to get deep enough
penetration to affect soft tissue damage or muscle
Russian Stim equipment,
especially Stimul One invented by Dr. Kots, are very
high-voltage machines which can elicit rapid results.
However, the high voltage often burns the skin, and the
use of weights to secure electrodes is very
Nevertheless, Dr. Kots
proved to the world that deep penetration of electrical
current, in fact, increases the physical size of muscle
fiber in as little as 10 days.
In December 1977, Dr.
Kots, under an exchange arrangement worked out between
Canada's Montreal Concordia College and Moscow's Central
Sports Institute, proved beyond a doubt that
electrically stimulating muscle, in fact, increases
strength and size of muscle fiber.
Dr. Robert Becker, in
his book, "The Body Electric," determined that collagen
becomes electrically charged and forms scar tissue when
Nobel Laureates, E. Neur and B. Sakmann, demonstrated
that cells communicate with each other electrically.
Cells embedded in charged collagen at injured sites have
their communication disrupted, preventing the reduction
of inflammation and edema.
