Physiotherapy & Osteopathy treatment in Reigate:
Inferential electrotherapy



Interferential electrotherapy is a form of electrical current that uses low frequency electrical stimulation to affect the physiology of deep muscle tissue.

Interferential electrotherapy has many clinical benefits including the reduction of pain, the stimulation of healing and reduced recovery time. Interferential electrotherapy cross links the electro-leads with two currents being produced by each channel, the inference of each other's pulses beat harder and deeper into muscle and tissue. Pain can be reduced as electric fields act close to the body's pain gate mechanisms. Pain signals can be blocked from reaching the brain so the patient doesn't register pain sensations. Electrical stimulation also causes the body to produce natural painkillers, increase blood circulation and reduce oedema.

Other forms of electrical stimulation can be unpleasant or uncomfortable in the superficial nerves or skin; however, the process of current interference creates a stronger, deeper effect. Interferential machines have much stronger carrier wave that makes penetration of soft tissues easier and the sensation more pleasant. Also as the effect is deeper is can give a better and longer lasting effect. Patients generally feel a tingling sensation at the beginning of the procedure. Muscles accustom to the sensation and intensity can be adapted throughout the session. The electric frequency is rhythmically increase or decrease in amplitude so tissues produce increased mobility and pain relief.

When I first came to you, I could not put weight fully on my knees and I found it difficult to walk. I was pleased that after only three weeks I felt a difference.I can now take long walks. I can also play my sports without pain. I would certainly recommend you to anyone.
