Interferential Therapy

What is  Interferential stimulation therapy (IFS therapy) ?

Interferential stimulation is a type of electrical fire up that uses a medium-frequency of alternating currents to incite tissues of injured muscles and joints. The medium-frequency is carried by the two independent circuits of paired electrodes. Interferential stimulation is believed to reduce pain, decrease swelling or edema, and increase blood circulation in damaged tissues, thus stimulating repair and health. Specifically, the paired electrodes are lined up on the skin of the hurt patient. This results for the current flowing between each pair to interconnect stirring the underlying injured area.

The flowing current obstructs the transmission of pain messages at the spinal cord level. Moreover, this process maximizes the use of the electrical current to infuse only the damaged tissues while unwanted stimulation of cutaneous nerves (nerves responsible for sensation) is reduced to minimum. As previously mentioned, Interferential stimulation has been established as a medical technique in reducing pain, promoting repair and healing among various harmed tissues, and improve the range of movement. No evident standardized procedure is essentially being recommended for the use of interferential therapy.

 The reasons for this are variations in the frequency of stimulation, treatment period, the duration of pulse, and electrode-placement method. Nevertheless, Interferential stimulation is increasingly being used for its analgesic effect and in restoring damaged muscle and joint tissues.
