Interferential Electro-Therapy

Another common therapy at our clinic is Interferential Electro-Therapy. On the outside, it looks exactly like the Electro-Muscle Stimulation therapy as this therapy also lasts 10-15 minutes and uses the sticky pads on your skin. Under the surface, the low-frequency electrical impulses are prompting the body to release endorphins and reduce the reception of pain. Besides reducing swelling in soft tissues, calming spasms, and local pain relief, this therapy also helps reduce atrophy, promotes muscle tone, and increases blood circulation. Generally, patients describe the feeling as “pins and needles”. Just like the Electro-Muscle Stimulation, patient control the intensity and it can be adjusted at any time.
