Interferential Current (IFC) - IFC uses medium frequency currents. It differs from TENS in that it penetrates deeper into the tissue, is more comfortable for the patient and increases circulation to help reduce healing time of the injured tissue. IFC also stimulates the release of pain reducing endorphins and causes relaxation of muscle spasms.
Laser - Therapeutic laser therapy uses the application of laser light to stimulate the healing of injured tissue. It accelerates tissue repair and reduces inflammation and pain.
Ultrasound - Therapeutic ultrasound is a modality used to treat deep tissue injuries. It generates heat through vibrations caused by the sound waves and increases blood flow deep into the affected area. This reduces healing time, swelling and breaks up scar tissue/adhesion formation.
