The most popular form of electrical muscle stimulation for treating chronic pain brought on by surgery, injury, or trauma is interferential current therapy (IFC). Pain relief and accelerated healing are the ultimate goals of employing IFC as part of a physical therapy or rehab program. There are few adverse effects of this non-invasive, drug-free therapy. ICT penetrates the skin's surface because it uses higher frequency radiation than other types of EMS. It penetrates deep into the body to target the source of pain without causing discomfort. IFC is frequently used to treat edema, sports injuries, joint injuries, and muscular spasms.
