If you suffer from health problems such as cumulative trauma disorders, body pain, joint injuries, or are pre or post orthopedic surgery you should talk to a Chiropractor in Selden about interferential current therapy as an option.

Benefits of Interferential current therapy Include:

  • Noticeable decrease in swelling and inflammation.
  • Restores lost movement and improve restricted movements and coordination.
  • Stimulates the natural hormones which can help your body heal faster.
  • Considered by many experts as a highly effective form of treatment for chronic pain.

Physiological effects of IFC:

  • an increase in localized blood flow which can improve healing by reducing swelling
  • the stimulation of local nerve cells that can have a pain reducing/anesthetic effect
  • some degree of muscle stimulation

The way that the therapy works is the electrical current is applied to the affected area using four electrodes. The four electrodes are placed in such a way that the two currents produced cross each other in the affected area. Which means that if you are treating a knee injury the two currents can be applied so that they cross deep within the actual knee joint itself. Where the two currents meet, they actually ‘interfere’ with each other; which is how the name ‘interferential’ came about.

Interferential current therapy is growing every day and is helping more patients get their body back and make living easy again. If you feel that this is a type of therapy that can help you schedule an appointment with a Chiropractor in Selden working at Pernice Chiropractic today!
