Interferential Muscle Stimulation is used to treat conditions where inflammation is a problem. This includes Back Pain, Osteoarthritis, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Muscular Pain, Muscle Strain and Sports injuries.
Pain relief and muscle relaxation
Relief of swelling and inflammation
Strengthen weak muscles and stimulate them to work properly
Interferential Muscle Therapy Theory
Interferential therapy, during the past ten years, has increased in popularity to
the point that it is now perhaps the most widely used form of electrotherapy in the
The rationale is to overcome the problems caused by low-frequency currents, while
maintaining their claimed therapeutic effect. Unlike TENS, which delivers intermittent
pulses to stimulate surface nerves and block the pain signal, Interferential Current
Therapy delivers continuous stimulation deep into the affected tissue.
Conditions Treated by Inferential Muscle Stimulation Therapy
Acute and chronic soft tissue problems such as muscle strains, ligament sprains and
Arthritis and other joint conditions
Intervertebral disc problems
How it Works
The Interferential Stimulator produces the low frequency current treatment that uses
two medium frequency currents, which "interfere" with each other to produce a beat
frequency that the body recognizes as a low frequency energy source.
The actual stimulation is produced by crossing two alternating currents with medium
frequencies simultaneously to a targeted body region. As a result, these two currents
will superimpose to form a new low frequency current deep within the tissue.
