3D Interferential Current (IFC) Physiotherapy

Interferential Current is one of the best devices we use for pain management and to treat acute and chronic conditions associated with injuries, traumas, and post-surgery pain. It offers a safe, effective, and natural healing option with no side effects. IFC alleviates pain and accelerates the self-healing process, getting your body back to a healthy, active, and pain-free lifestyle.

This device can help with:

  • Decreases swelling and inflammation
  • Reduces or eliminates pain safely effectively
  • Restores restricted movements
  • Stimulates natural hormones which can help your body heal faster

IFC CAN TREAT CONDITIONS SUCH AS:

  • Back and neck pain
  • Inflammation/ edema
  • Knee and hip pain
  • Muscle tension/stiffness/ spasms
  • Shoulder pain
  • Sport injuries
  • Sprains/ strains
  • Tendon and ligament injuries
  • And much more

HOW DOES IFC WORK

IFC produces stimulation which reaches deep muscle fibers by alternating between two medium frequency electrical pulses and are paired with electrodes, which are placed on your skin around the injured area.

These frequencies block pain signals at the spinal cord and stimulate endorphins (body’s natural pain killers). This helps create a self-healing process without the need for medications.

Common Questions


  • How safe is IFC?
  • Is the treatment painful?
How safe is IFC?

IFC has been used in physical therapy treatment for many years and has been proven to be very safe and effective. However, the modality should be avoided on individuals with pacemakers and near the low back or abdomen of pregnant women. It should also be avoided on a body part where there is any possible risk of metastasis. At your initial visit, our practitioner will consult with you on your treatment plan.

Is the treatment painful?

You should not feel any discomfort from the application of the interferential current. The electrodes will be applied with damp pads between the electrode and your skin. If discomfort is felt, it is usually because an electrode sponge is not damp enough or because the sponge is not entirely covering the electrode and therefore is allowing some direct contact with your skin.

Our patients do not experience any discomfort, depending on the area, in some places it may even feel like little tickles.

The art of healing comes from nature, not from the physician. Therefore the physician must start from nature, with an open mind.
