Back in the day, transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) method was commonly used for the treatment, but now IFC, or Interferential Current Therapy, has surpassed it in popularity.
IFC is an effective treatment method that reduces pain and provides relief to patients. It sends a small amount of current to tissues around the injured part of your body, via the skin. It’s a very safe treatment method that promotes healing.
During the treatment, electrode pads are attached to the injured area. A consistent current supply addresses end plate hyperactivity and controls pain. It speeds up healing and also reduces stress. Furthermore, patients tend to feel more relaxed after the treatment sessions.
IFC helps you overcome severe pain, but keep in mind that your brain can develop tolerance after a few sessions. Once your brain figures out the stimulation pattern, the treatment may not prove as effective. Therefore, we will modify the settings and alter its intensity via an intensity dial.
IFC Therapy has quick and lasting effects. It targets the damaged tissues around the injured area and therefore gives relief from pain, swelling, and inflammation.
