Interferential Electro-Therapy is a therapeutic treatment to aid
in the relief of pain and the promotion of soft tissue healing. Ligament
sprains, muscle strains and spasms often respond to this treatment, helping to
reduce atrophy (muscle wastage) and increase blood circulation. Tiny amounts of
electrical impulses are induced into the tissues in the vicinity of the injury.
Where these waves intersect below the surface of the skin, a low-frequency
stimulation is created. This prompts the body to secrete endorphins and other
natural pain-killers to help relieve pain.
Interferential Electro-Therapy reduces painful symptoms, decreases local
swelling, promotes muscle tone, restores normal movements, release the body's
natural pain killers and accelerates the healing process.
