Interferential therapy uses low frequency current to stimulate nerves without the associated pain.
Two currents pass through the tissue simultaneously and are set up to cross and interfere with each other. This interference stimulates peripheral nerves and muscles. The muscle stimulation can help to increase local blood flow to the area. Electrical stimulation at a certain frequency can also help with pain relief.
At The Claydon Clinic we find the pain relief and increase blood flow properties of Interferential therapy benefit many of our patients presenting with back pain and neck pain, and combined with a heat pack it is a rather relaxing treatment!!
