Interferential electrotherapy is a medical spa procedure that uses electrical currents of different frequencies to treat various conditions and promote healing. This therapy is based on the principle of applying electric currents through electrodes placed on the skin in the affected areas.
Interferential currents are generated by a specially designed device and can vary in frequency and intensity. During the procedure, electrodes are placed on the skin around the treated area and connected to the electrotherapy machine. It generates interferential currents that intersect each other in the patient’s body tissues, with multiple therapeutic effects.
Interferential current electrotherapy has various health benefits. These include:
- Pain reduction: Interferential currents stimulate nerve fibres, blocking the transmission of pain signals to the brain. Thus, this therapy can help relieve chronic or acute pain.
- Improved blood circulation: Interferential currents can stimulate vasodilation and blood flow in the treated area. This helps to improve oxygenation and nutrition of tissues, as well as removing toxins.
- Muscle relaxation: Interferential currents can be used to stimulate muscle contractions and relax tense muscles. It can be beneficial in case of muscle contractions, spasms or excessive muscle tension.
- Stimulating the healing process: interferential current electrotherapy can promote tissue healing by stimulating blood circulation and cell metabolism. This can speed up the recovery process from injuries or surgery.
The duration and frequency of interferential electrotherapy sessions will be determined according to the doctor’s recommendations and the needs of each individual patient. It is important that this procedure is carried out under the supervision of a qualified specialist, who will adjust the parameters and current intensity according to the patient’s tolerance and condition.
