Interferential Electro Current Therapy for Pain Relief

Electrical stimulation has been used in various medical and healthcare facilities for centuries. It has been shown to revive and restore the muscles and relieve pain.

In rehabilitation and physiotherapy facilities, interferential current treatment is commonly used to provide pain relief and promote muscle healing. This type of therapy can help individuals recover faster and improve their quality of life.

At Kaster Chiropractic we understand the value it adds to a patient’s recovery. Because of this, we offer this treatment in-house.

What is Interferential Current Therapy?

This therapy is commonly used for treating chronic pain, such as that caused by auto accident-related trauma, surgery, or injury. It can help patients heal up to two times faster.

Unlike other forms of EMS (electric muscle stimulation), this non-invasive treatment does not require a drug or a medical device. ICT uses high-frequency energy to penetrate the body without causing discomfort.

How It Works

The goal of this treatment is to stimulate the body’s natural healing process by targeted delivering electrical currents to areas of damaged tissue.

Conditions Treated with ICT:

Patients suffering from various conditions such as auto accident injuries, sports injuries, muscle strains, sprains, and arthritis can often benefit. It can help relieve their pain and improve their quality.

Treatment is performed on targeted areas of the body that are in pain. It can quickly help to reduce soreness, promote healing, and offer a quick recovery.

Stimulation can be delivered deep into the tissue in localized areas including the neck, shoulders, knees, back, elbows, hips, and more.

The Advantages

This treatment stimulates the body’s natural healing process by releasing endorphins. It can also help decrease inflammation and swelling and improve range of motion and joint mobility. The result is less pain and greater mobility.

What you can expect

ICT is painless and can be described as a tingling sensation or that of when your leg falls asleep and begins to wake up to “pins and needles”.

Who Can Undergo ICT Therapy?

ICT is wonderful for just about everyone. It is not advised for very young children, women who are pregnant, or patients with pacemakers.
