Interferential Current (IFC)

Interferential Current (IFC) is non-invasive therapeutic modality used for pain relief with the use of skin-surfaced electrodes. IFC electrodes allow a small electrical current to create a pulsating action in muscles. In addition, IFC stimulates superficial nerve endings. 

The purpose of IFC is to:

-Decrease pain
-Reduce muscle spasm
-Increase lymphathic drainage

Electrical Muscle Stimulation (“Russian Stim”)

Electrical muscle stimulation (EMS) is a therapeutic modality used for multiple injuries. Although EMS incorporates a small electric current it is virtually harmless and pose very little side effect or risk.

Adhesive pads are applied to the surface of the skin around the site of injury. These pads transmit a small electrical current to the muscle fibers below it. Now muscles are able to contract on their own or with the active assistance of the patient. This form of training is called neuromuscular electrical stimulation.

The purpose of EMS is to:

-Increase blood flow between the fibers of the muscle
-Increase forces of the injured muscle
-Develop muscle endurance
-Increase body awareness during exercise
-Train specific muscles to fire in coordination with one another

These benefits have been utilized for sports training, pre and post surgical rehabilitation, neurological conditions and assist muscle healing.
