Interferential Therapy (IFT)

How Does Interferential Therapy Work?

It is a non-invasive physical therapy for pain relief and tissue repair. The therapy’s fundamental principle involves utilizing low-frequency (<250pps) electrical stimulation of nerves to trigger significant physiological effects.
During an Interferential Therapy (IFT) session, specialized electrodes are strategically placed on your skin, precisely targeting the affected area to prevent pain signals from being transmitted to the brain. IFT achieves these results without the associated pain or unpleasant side effects, making it an ideal choice for many patients.

IFT works in a special way as it uses interferential rather than normal stimulation. The main clinical applications for which IFT appears to be used are:

Benefits of Interferential Therapy (IFT):

  1. Pain Management: IFT is renowned for its ability to manage pain effectively. It helps reduce or eliminate discomfort stemming from various conditions, such as muscle spasms, chronic pain, and post-injury recovery.

  2. Accelerated Healing: The therapy promotes accelerated healing by increasing blood flow to the affected area. Enhanced circulation delivers vital nutrients and oxygen, facilitating the body’s natural healing processes.

  3. Muscle Spasm Relief: IFT’s targeted approach is particularly effective in relieving muscle spasms, providing much-needed relief and restoring normal muscle function.

  4. Non-Invasive: IFT is a non-invasive treatment, which means it doesn’t require surgical procedures or medications. This makes it a safe and accessible option for a wide range of patients.

  5. Customized Care: Our experienced therapists tailor IFT sessions to your specific needs and condition, ensuring you receive the most effective treatment possible.

Women’s health physiotherapists can tailor an exercise plan to help you improve a variety of symptoms caused by women’s health concerns. For example, bone density naturally decreases during menopause. So, a physiotherapist can help you strengthen your bones and improve your bone health through exercise.

Additionally, strengthening your pelvic floor, especially during and after pregnancy, is a huge component of women’s health physiotherapy. Pregnancy and childbirth obviously put a lot of stress on your pelvic floor and it’s essential to strengthen this area as much as possible.
