What is Interferential Current and Electrotherapies?
Electrotherapy is a form of medical treatment, which uses small electrical impulses to repair tissue, stimulate muscles and increase sensation and muscle strength. The benefits of electrotherapy are wide-ranging and include a more advanced healing process, a more effective circulatory system and increased muscle tone. The effects of electrotherapy include a reduction in pain, increased strength, increased range of movement, increased speed and strength of muscle contractions and an increased rate of absorption.

Interferential Current and Electrotherapies
How Does It Work?
Electrode pads are placed on your skin around the identified injury. The Interferential Current device then transmits electrical impulses in very small quantities through your skin. Underlying tissue and nerves are stimulated which begin the healing properties. Completely non-painful, patients often describe the sensation as a minor prickle. Frequencies produced by the IFC have been proven to stimulate endorphins, the body’s natural pain killers. This can help to create a self-healing process without the need to for medications. This form of therapy is also extremely useful in reducing pain, inflammation, curing edema, and spasms.Book Online
