IFC (Inferential Current Therapy)
IFC is an electronic device used to stimulate nerve endings in deep tissue to reduce swelling, relieve pain, stop muscle spasms, increase blood flow and support healing. IFC is a technology used to treat many muscle, soft tissue and nerve diseases or injuries, such as:
- Rheumatoid arthritis
- Back pain
- Circulatory disorders
- Sports injuries
IFC is like TENS, but uses two medium frequencies targeted at a specific point instead of one frequency focused on a larger area. Electrodes are placed on the skin around the injured area. The electrical impulses it generates travel through the skin to the deep tissue where they work on a cellular level to stimulate nerves, reduce pain and accelerate recovery. The treatment takes mere minutes and usually clients only experience a slight tingling sensation.
