Interferential therapy involves a type of electrical nerve stimulation that is applied to the skin. Inferential treatment is effective in the treatment of muscular pain, muscular spasm, sports injury or musculoskeletal pains. It can also be used for strengthening weakened muscles. Interferential treatment can help in dilating blood vessels and thereby, helps in relieving inflammations. Before embarking on the treatment your physiotherapist will consider your physical condition, the nature of your problem and any contradictions to use of this kind of electrical impulse. The treatment cannot be taken by individuals with sensory deficits, deep vein thrombosis, individuals using cardiac pacemakers or pregnant women. The inferential machine has two alternating currents which combine to produce a new frequency that stimulates muscles to contract in response. The machine offers the option of increasing or decreasing the strength of the current and controlling the type of nerve stimulation. Either two or four pads are applied around the area that needs to be treated, these pads administer the current to the affected muscles. The physiotherapist can control the machine and adjust the current. The patients experience varying degree of tingling sensations when the current is administered. The treatment usually lasts between 10 and 20 minutes. Interferential treatment is an improvement over the conventional TENS as it provides current at a greater frequency that easily penetrates to deeper layers of muscles providing immediate relief. The low costs and fewer sessions required for treatment make interferential therapy an optimum choice.
