Interferential Current Therapy

Interferential current (IFC) therapy is a simple, non-invasive, and non-pharmacological treatment commonly used in clinical practice to alleviate pain, mainly of musculoskeletal origin, for muscle strength production, edema reduction, autonomic effects, tissue repair, and helps reduce muscle spasms. IFC therapy involves the transcutaneous application of two out-of-phase medium-frequency alternating currents with a view to delivering currents to deep-seated tissue, which involves reducing cutaneous nerve stimulation and maximizing the current that permeates the tissues with a higher carrier frequency, making it more suitable for treating deeper tissue layers. IFC has shown to have significant analgesic effects in patients with neck pain, low back pain, knee osteoarthritis and post-operative knee pain. 

Interferential Current Therapy is an effective therapy method used to relieve pain and accelerate the self­-healing process. It is essentially a deeper form of electrical stimulation. To perform this method of treatment, electrodes are placed on the skin around the injured body part. An Interferential Current device is then used, which transmits electrical impulses in minute quantities to your muscles and is raised to the patients tolerance. Underlying tissue and nerves become stimulated which begins the healing properties of IFC. These impulses are not painful, and can be described as a minor prickle on the skin. In addition, patients can feel their muscles  involuntarily contracting.

Interferential Current Therapy is used to treat:

  • Muscle disorders
  • Stiff joints
  • Joint injuries
  • Edema
  • Inflammation
  • Muscle spasms

  • Reducing or eliminating pain in a safe manner
  • Noticeable decrease in swelling and inflammation
  • Restoring lost movement and improving range­-of­-motion
  • Stimulating the natural hormones which can help the body heal faster

Additionally, Interferential Current Therapy also assists in blood circulation and pain relief by stimulating endorphins.
