Interferential Current Therapy in Kansas City

If you have recently been injured in an auto accident and sustained soft tissue injuries, Interferential Current Therapy may help. Interferential Current Therapy is a non-invasive electrical current therapy that penetrates deep into injured tissues to help heal soft tissue damage. Soft tissue injuries are the most common auto accident injuries affecting patients.

How You May Benefit from Interferential Current Therapy:

  • Relieve Deep Tissue Pain
  • Reduce Muscle Soreness and Relax Muscles
  • Reduce Inflammation and Swelling
  • Increase Local Blood Circulation
  • Improve Mobility And Overall Health
  • Accelerate Recovery Time

How Interferential Current Therapy Works

Interferential Current Therapy employs medium-frequency electrical currents to treat pain and promote healing in injured tissues. Electrodes are placed on the skin around the affected area, and these are connected to an Interferential Current Therapy device that generates two slightly different high-frequency currents, typically around 4000 Hz. When these currents intersect within the body, they create a therapeutic low-frequency interference pattern, usually between 1 to 250 Hz. This interference pattern penetrates deeper into the tissues compared to other forms of electrical stimulation, allowing for effective treatment of underlying issues.

The low-frequency electrical stimulation from Interferential Current Therapy targets nerves, blocking pain signals from reaching the brain and stimulating the release of endorphins, the body’s natural painkillers. This dual action provides significant pain relief, which is particularly beneficial for those suffering from injuries sustained in auto accidents. Additionally, the electrical currents enhance blood circulation in the affected area, delivering more oxygen and nutrients necessary for tissue repair and reducing inflammation and swelling. By promoting muscle relaxation and improving overall mobility, Interferential Current Therapy supports a comprehensive recovery process, making it an excellent choice for managing pain and accelerating healing.
