Physiomobility clinics are equipped with a range of modalities to deliver electrical stimulation currents to achieve therapeutic results such as safe pain control, decrease inflammation, improve blood flow and stimulate body’s natural healing.
One of the most effective and commonly used electrical stimulation modalities is Interferential current therapy (IFC). It is a safe and effective treatment with no known side effect.
IFC impulses are delivered through the skin into deeper muscles & tissues by electrodes around the injured area of the body. Most treatment sessions last between fifteen to twenty minutes. Patients experience a pickering sensation which is strong but not uncomfortable. Patients describe their experience as pleasant and comforting.
IFC is used to:
When lower IFC frequencies are applied, the nervous system releases endorphins (natural pain killers) to blood stream which may reduce the need for pain medication. In chronic pain conditions, patients are provided with home units to have more control over their pain and have a better quality of life.
