Interferential Electro-Therapy aids in the relief and healing of soft tissue. Small electrical impulses are induced within the area of the injury and cause a low-frequency stimulation. This stimulation causes the body to secrete endorphins and other natural painkillers that aid in pain relief.
Many patients have described Interferential Electro-Therapy as a faint “pins and needles” sensation and extremely beneficial. It is most commonly used to help reduce the swelling of soft tissues. Muscle strains and spasms respond well to this treatment due to its ability to increase blood circulation and reduce atrophy.
