Interferential Therapy

Interferential therapy uses the physiological impacts of mid-frequency electrical stimulation to reduce sprains, spasms, and strains of muscles. These current waves produce an intermittent massaging effect on the injured area, producing endorphins and encephalins, which are natural analgesics of the body. It helps relieve pain, enhancing blood flow, speed up recovery, and reduce swelling.
