Interferential Current (IFC) is a physical modality that is typically used to help relieve pain over a specific area of the body. The IFC machine produces an electrical current that stimulates the nervous system to interrupt the pain signals felt by the brain. The engineered frequency of IFC crosses the skin with greater ease and with less stimulation than with TENS, and is generally more comfortable and better tolerated by patients. It also allows to stimulate deeper tissue.
This type of treatment will not fix an injury in itself and should be seen as a short term option. The decrease in pain that the IFC offers allows us to continue moving and functioning as comfortably as possible until the root cause is identified and fixed.
