If you’re dealing with long-lasting pain, you might have tested different solutions like medicine, physiotherapy, acupuncture, or massage. But, did you come across IFT therapy? IFT, short for Interferential Therapy, is a kind of electrotherapy that can assist you in handling pain and promoting tissue recovery.
The low-frequency current produced by IFT therapy delivers two primary benefits: Firstly, it prevents pain signals from reaching the brain, rooted in the gate control theory of pain. This theory suggests that stimulating non-painful nerve fibers can hinder the transmission of painful nerve impulses. Consequently, by intercepting these pain signals, IFT therapy offers rapid and enduring pain relief. Secondly, it boosts blood circulation and tissue recovery. The low-frequency current prompts muscle stimulation, causing contraction and relaxation. This dynamic process enhances blood flow, ensuring improved oxygen supply to the tissues. As a result, healing is promoted, and inflammation and swelling are reduced.
IFT therapy holds several advantages compared to other electrotherapy methods. Firstly, it excels in reaching deeper tissues compared to alternatives like TENS (Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation) or EMS (Electrical Muscle Stimulation). This effectiveness is particularly beneficial for addressing conditions such as osteoarthritis, sciatica, or back pain. Additionally, IFT therapy can cover a broader area, enabling the simultaneous treatment of multiple pain points. Moreover, it stands out for being more comfortable and less bothersome than other electrotherapy modalities. The medium-frequency currents it employs are subtle, causing minimal skin sensations or muscle twitching.
Gold MedalphysioTherapy offers expert guidance on the benefits of IFT (Interferential Therapy). Our consultancy emphasizes the effectiveness of IFT in pain management and tissue healing. We elaborate on its mechanisms, including blocking pain signals through the gate control theory and promoting enhanced blood circulation. With a focus on personalized treatment plans, we highlight IFT’s ability to reach deeper tissues and cover multiple pain points, distinguishing it from other electrotherapy modalities. Our consultations extend to using IFT as a home device under professional guidance. Discover how IFT therapy, administered by trained professionals, can be a tailored and effective addition to your pain management strategy.
Unlike alternatives like TENS or EMS, IFT reaches deeper tissues, covers larger areas, and offers a more comfortable experience
While generally safe, IFT has contraindications, including pregnancy, implanted devices, metal implants, skin lesions, and cancer.
