Therapeutic Effects Of A Genuine Interferential Current Therapy
Interferential Current Therapy (IFT) is specialized electrotherapy or electrical stimulation 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 surrounds 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.

Electrotherapy & Interferential Current Therapy (IFT)
Interferential Current Therapy (IFT) is the best therapeutic form of electrotherapy. It is superior to tens therapy when it comes to recovery from soft tissue injuries. Treatments via IFT are 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 a longer therapy 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 Interferential Current Therapy 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. The small bitty devices are called 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 valid interferential current device is significantly different from other electrotherapy forms. Furthermore, some centers do not fully grasp the clinical benefits of electrotherapy, as Interferential Current Therapy provides. What is even worse is that some are also incapable of using this device correctly.

If you have the money, you can buy the top-of-the-line Ferrari, but you will not be able to drive that Ferrari like Michael Schumacher. The same holds here. You can buy the device, but using it as a professional will depend on skills and knowledge. For this reason, all our clinical staff is required to go through our intensive training program before they treat our patient.
