Interferential Current Therapy Treatments
What is Interferential Current Therapy?
Interferential current therapy is a therapy option that is used by many clinics to relieve pain and accelerate the healing process to allow your body to return to being healthy and pain free. The IFC high-frequency signals penetrate the skin to reach the deeper muscle tissues. During treatment, electrodes are positioned on the patient’s skin near the injured area of the body. The Interferential Current device transmits electrical impulses in small amounts through your skin to treat the injury. Underlying tissue and nerves are stimulated, and the healing process then begins. These impulses are not painful.
In fact, patients describe the sensation as a minor prickle on their skin. Frequencies produced by the IFC have been proven to stimulate endorphins, the body’s natural pain killers. This can help to enhance the self-healing process without the need for medications. This treatment can be useful in reducing pain, inflammation, curing edema, and spasms.
