Interferential Electrotherapy is a unique way of effectively delivering therapeutic frequencies to tissue. It utilizes two medium-frequency electrical currents and is set up so that their paths cross, thus penetrating the tissues simultaneously. Interferential Electrotherapy is safe and not painful. Unlike treatment utilizing medication drugs, interferential electrotherapy causes no known side effects. The patient is only likely to feel some vibrating sensation. However, generally speaking, it is not recommended for individuals with a pacemaker or women who are pregnant.

Muscle Stimulation and Injury Healing - The two frequencies generated by an interferential machine deeply penetrate and stimulate muscle fibers and parasympathetic nerve fibers. Stimulation at certain frequency levels causes muscle contractions and increases blood flow to injured areas, which flushes out waste fluids that cause swelling (edema) and ushers new blood into the area, thereby expediting recovery.
