A deeper type of electrical stimulation that we offer is called Interferential Current Therapy. This is a highly effective method of pain relief therapy that also helps speed up the body's natural healing process. Just as in EMT, electrodes are placed onto the skin over the injured area. Next, interferential current is used, and electrical pulses are sent to penetrate through your skin and stimulate the injured muscle tissue beneath. Nerves are also stimulated, increasing blood flow, and encouraging healing to take place. The process is not painful, and patients typically report that this sensation feels like a slight tingle or prickling on top of the skin.
Interferential Current Therapy is effectively used to treat:
- Circulation disorders
- Muscle spasms
- Muscle disorders
- Injured Joints
Benefits of Interferential Current Therapy include:
- Reduce and even eliminate pain through a minimally evasive process
- Substantial decrease in inflammation
- Improve range of motion
- Regain lost movement
- Endorphins are naturally stimulated to speed up healing
