ELECTROTHERAPY & ULTRASOUND
Interferential Current (IFC) – Interferential current therapy is a treatment to reduce pain, relax and stimulate muscles, decrease swelling, and promote soft tissue healing. The low-frequency stimulation increases circulation in the area and induces the body to secrete endorphins, which are the body’s natural painkillers.
Ultrasound – Therapeutic ultrasound is used to speed up the healing process by increasing blood flow to the area and decreasing swelling and pain. Ultrasound can also be used to create a deep heat in a localized area to ease muscle spasms.
