What Do Chiropractors Treat?
While famous for helping with back injuries, chiropractors actually are trained to treat the entire musculoskeletal system. A chiropractor can help if something goes wrong with muscles, bones, or where their moving parts come together.
The most common issues that bring people to the chiropractor include auto accident injuries, work injuries, neck pain, low back pain, knee pain, shoulder pain, elbow pain, ankle pain, and headaches and migraines.
What is Interferential Electro Therapy?
Interferential Electro Therapy uses electrical current to alternate between high-frequency current (4,000 Hz) and low-frequency current (150 Hz) to produce a medium frequency within the tissue. This frequency stimulates the cells in the body resulting in induced muscle flexing and improved blood flow.
The stimulation is used for pain relief, to promote healing, and to control muscle spasms.
Is Interferential Electro Therapy Similar to TENS?
A little. TENS therapy implements the use of low-frequency current across the surface level of the skin. Interferential Electro Therapy delivers a higher frequency that goes deeper into the tissue (with less pain or discomfort reported).
