Therapeutic Effects of a genuine Interferential Current Therapy
Interferential Current Therapy (IFT) is electrical stimulation therapy used in treating spine and joint conditions. Specialized pads are used to render treatments through IFT. Our physiotherapists will place the pads in a manner that they surround the painful or injured area.
Here is a list of benefits you can expect:
- Relaxes muscles
- Decreases swelling
- Increases blood flow to the treated area
Also, it is ideal for stimulating the release of the patients‘ pain and injury fighting chemicals (endorphins and enkephalins). So, by using interferential current therapy, we will be able to get you better faster. IFT treatment or treatments through electrical stimulation therapy can help patients with slip-disc, joint pain, neck pain, back pain, scoliosis and sports injuries.

Electrical Stimulation Therapy or Current Therapy (IFT)
Interferential Current Therapy is the best therapeutic form of electrical stimulation. It is superior to the tens therapy when it comes to recovery from soft tissue injuries. Treatments via Interferential Current Therapy is safe, soothing, and effective. Therapy usually takes 10-15 minutes depending on the patient. However, in our center, the physiotherapy treatment time for Interferential current therapy is about 20 minutes. We use longer time to enhance the therapeutic benefits of each session. Keep in mind; that longer times are more beneficial only if your condition warrants it. You will need a thorough assessment by one of our clinical Doctors of Chiropractic, before getting this treatment procedure included in your treatment plan
The simplest explanation for IFT is that it is a form of electrical stimulation. There are many types of electrical stimulation current therapy methods; none has the beneficial impact Interferential Current has on the tissue. So, centers that use “little-bitty-devices” do a little bit of good if any when it comes to soft tissue healing. Simply put, the little bitty devices are tens units, and they have no healing power at all. Tens units are microcurrent stimulators designed to decrease pain. But, have no therapeutic or healing functions at all. Therefore, having treatments from a true interferential current device is significantly different compared to others forms of current therapy. Furthermore, some centers do not fully grasp the clinical benefits of an IFT. What is even worse is that some are even incapable of using this device correctly.
