Most of the included trials evaluated interferential current therapy as a co-intervention (combined with exercise, short wave diathermy, hot packs, ice, myofascial release, neuromuscular electrical stimulation, infrared radiation, or ultrasound).

Included patients had a Cited by: current will be stronger than either of the 2 input currents. Numerous researchers have evaluated the effect of varying the medium frequency carrier sine wave current (e.g.

Ward et al ; Ward, ; Venancio et al, ; Correa et al,). There isFile Size: KB. Interfering (Nemec) current is created from two sinusoidal alternating currents overlapping in intensity, phase, and frequency.

It happens in deep tissue. Interfering current is a middle-frequency current with a Hz entering ering the frequency of sinusoidal alternating current, its intensity, and phase, we can have three types of interference: Three types of interference.

In this therapy, the interferential current is produced on the skin, of the affected body part of the patient, with the help of interferential device by expert physiotherapist. This interferential current penetrates into the skin and reaches the underlying living muscle tissue.

This therapy involves an orthopaedic physical therapy tion: MSPT (Master of Physical Therapy),Bpth/BPT. Interferential Current Therapy By Tiziano Marovino, DPT, MPH, DAIPM Interferential current (IFC) therapy is not a new technology; rather, it has been available for many years and predates all but the transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) unit from a longevity standpoint.

Interferential therapy is widely used by physiotherapists. It uses electrical current to reduce swelling, relieve pain and stimulate muscle. Interferential applies two different frequencies that interfere with one another to produce a medium frequency current within the tissues. Interferential Therapy(IFT) may be defined as the use of two medium frequency current around hz to evoke interference current between 1Hz to Hz.

Electrotherapy involves applying a device to use electrical energy to a patient’s body to encourage healing in muscle and other body tissues. Interferential therapy basically involved putting 4 electrodes on the outer edges of where a patient was feeling pain. The interferential current therapy consisted of one "channel -2 electrodes" going off and on 4, times per second (referred to as PPS/Frequency/Rate/Pulses per Second).

The other channel went off and on 4, to 4, PPS. A two-week transregional interferential current treatment has shown significant short-term efficacy, when compared with a ‘usual care’ protocol, on self-perceived pain and functionality in subjects with chronic low back pain. Keywords Disability, interferential current electrotherapy.

Interferential therapy or IFT, in short, is a very integral part of the physiotherapy treatment process. It is one of the several electrotherapy modes of treatment where electric current is used for getting the desired result.

The other electrotherapy modes includes ultrasonic therapy, shortwave diathermy, infrared lamp therapy etc. If you had been to any physiotherapy center you might have. Interferential Therapy (IFT) © Tim Watson Page 1.

INTERFERENTIAL THERAPY (IFT) INTRODUCTION. The basic principle of Interferential Therapy (IFT) is to utilise the significant physiological effects of low frequency.

Posted on Ma Interferential Current (IFC) Therapy is a form of electrotherapy in which two currents are applied and "crossed" resulting in a different frequency at the interference (crossing) point. Thank you for choosing Empi Axon which provides an interferential therapy to treat conditions where inflammation is a problem such as Back Pain, Osteoarthritis, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Muscular Pain / Strain, and Sports injuries.

Axon produces the low frequency current treatment that uses two medium frequency currents, which “interfere” with. [Purpose] This study used electromyography to measure the effective treatment duration of interferential current therapy for muscle fatigue.

[Subjects and Methods] Fifteen healthy adult men. Interferential current stimulation is considered investigational. Policy Guidelines For individuals who have musculoskeletal conditions who receive IFS, the evidence includes randomized controlled trials (RCTs) and meta-analyses. Relevant outcomes are symptoms, functional outcomes, quality of life, medication use, and treatment-related morbidity.

Interferential Current stimulation is very useful in the treatment of circulatory and muscular disorders, stiffness of joints, edema, and inflammation. If you suffer from health problems such as cumulative trauma disorders, body pain, joint injuries, or are pre or post orthopedic surgery, interferential current therapy is and important option.

Interferential Current (IFC), continued Carrier frequency: 1,–5, hz (some machines are set at 4, hz) Linear sweep: continuously modulating from maximum to minimum frequency Peak to peak: alternately modulating between maximum and minimum frequency Treatment Considerations.

Pulsed electromagnetic field therapy, interferential current, and galvanic stimulation are some of the electrotherapy treatments that may be helpful in certain situations. Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy Aids in Bone Fusion Improving cellular functioning and easing pain are typical goals for pulsed electromagnetic field therapy, or PEMF.

BlueCross BlueShield of Tennessee Medical Policy Manual. Interferential Current Stimulation. DESCRIPTION. Interferential current stimulation (IFCS) is a type of electrical stimulation that uses paired electrodes of 2 independent circuits carrying high-frequency (4, Hz) and medium-frequency ( Hz) alternating currents.

Patients in the treatment and control groups were unaware of their treatment allocation. In each session, 15 min of vacuum interferential current therapy (IFC) or sham IFC was applied to the patients. Interferential current was supplied by the device, Metron Medical Australia, Vectorpulse (Australia).

Physiotherapists have been using Interferential Therapy as one of many treatment tools and we can create a personalised rehabilitation plan according to your needs. Interferential Therapy can be used with other protocols to achieve the best results. These include resistance exercises, massage, and hot and cold therapies.

In salons, the claims for interferential treatments were similar to those for faradic treatments – muscle contraction, improved blood and lymphatic flow, and increased tissue metabolism. Like faradic treatments they were used in body sculpting and cellulite treatments, including bust improvement and ankle reductions, as well as to strengthen facial muscles in anti-wrinkle and facial contour treatments.

Electrical stimulation (e-stim) is a physical therapy treatment that uses mild electrical pulses to help repair injured muscles, manipulate nerves, and reduce your pain. Interferential current. The studies were selected if transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation and interferential current were used as treatment and they had pain as the main outcome, as evaluated by a visual analog scale.

Secondary outcomes were the Western Ontario Macmaster and Rolland Morris Disability questionnaires, which were added after data extraction. Interferential current stimulation is considered not medically necessary for treatment of pain as the available scientific evidence is insufficient to permit conclusions concerning the effect of the technology on net health outcomes.

Coverage: Benefits may vary between groups/contracts. Please refer to the appropriate member. What is Interferential Current and Electrotherapies.

Electrotherapy is a form of medical treatment, which uses small electrical impulses to repair tissue, stimulate muscles and increase sensation and muscle strength.

The benefits of electrotherapy are wide-ranging and include a more advanced healing process, a more effective circulatory system and increased muscle tone.

Interferential Current Therapy. Interferential current is effective in relieving pain and reducing swelling. It was introduced as a therapy in the ’s and allowed the application of electrical currents and virtually eliminated the discomfort of lower frequency currents.

Interferential Therapy (IFT) is an electrical modality treatment that uses low-frequency electric currents to stimulate the nerves in our body which relieves pain, reduces swelling amongst many other health benefits. The currents are sent through the skin in pulses.

We are sports chiropractors who focus intensively on correcting motion and postural dysfunction in addition to diagnosing and treating a wide range of injuries. Our treatments include: Functional Movement Analysis, Active Release Technique, Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization, RockTape, interferential current therapy, Chiropractic adjustments and exercise prescription.

the evidence of the effectiveness of interferential current therapy in the treatment of knee osteoarthritis with respect to pain relief and improvement of physical function, such as performing activities of daily living, as an adjunct treatment to exercise which is the standard of care.

Interferential Current Therapy is an effective therapy method used to relieve pain and accelerate the self­-healing process. It is essentially a deeper form of electrical stimulation.

To perform this method of treatment, electrodes are placed on the skin around the injured body part. Get Treatment Now. As physiotherapists, we employ sound physiological principles along with evidence based clinical practice by using various physical agents, such as our hands, interferential current, and other modalities to provide the best and most effective treatment to restore you back to your peak performance AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.

Introduction: Electrotherapy, including theTENS and interferential current (IFC) is one of the most frequently used treatments in physical therapy in patients with low back pain.

The aim of this study was to assess the influence of TENS and IFC on pain relief. The electrical current helps the body to produce a neurotransmitter called endorphin that is crucial for reducing pain, decreasing inflammation and promoting healing.

The endorphins released by your body make the IFC a pleasant experience. To book an appointment or learn more contact us at   It’s the most broadly used form of TENS and largely versatile within the realm of a CBP treatment plan.

Interferential Current. This is considered a “deeper” form of traditional TENS treatment, operating at an ultra-high frequency (Hz) that can penetrate the skin to relieve deep-tissue tension and pain. Treatment Physical Therapy As a primary caregiver, a physiotherapist can assess, diagnose, and treat an injury through a combination of methods that may include; manual therapy, modalities (ultrasound, laser, interferential), and/or exercise prescription.Electrotherapy is the use of electrical energy as a medical treatment.

In medicine, the term electrotherapy can apply to a variety of treatments, including the use of electrical devices such as deep brain stimulators for neurological disease.

The term has also been applied specifically to the use of electric current to speed wound healing. Additionally, the term "electrotherapy" or.Once you have been found to be a candidate for interferential electro-therapy (IFT), the treatment can begin very simply: an interferential current machine will be attached to your body with adhesive pads in the area where your pain resides, and a mild electrical current will be sent to stimulate the damaged tissue that lies below the surface.
