Electrical Stimulation and Interferential Therapy in Franklin, MA

At your first appointment, your Physical Therapist will perform a thorough evaluation and develop a personalized rehabilitation treatment program with you that may include Electrical stimulation/interferential therapy.

 

WHAT Is Electrical Stimulation and Interferential Therapy ?

Electrical stimulation (e-stim) and Interferential use electrical pulses to mimic the action of signals coming from neurons (cells in your nervous system). These mild electrical currents target either muscles or nerves.

E-stim therapy for muscle recovery sends signals to targeted muscles to make them contract. By causing repeated muscle contractions, blood flow improves, helping repair injured muscles.

Electrical stimulation/interferential therapy

Interferential is a type of e-stim that focuses on pain relief that sends signals on a different wavelength so they reach the nerves, rather than the muscles. Interferential current can block pain receptors from being sent from nerves to the brain.

Benefits of Electrical Stimulation and Interferential therapy

R

Relieving Muscle Spasms.

Electric muscle stimulation can relax muscles, easing tightness and soreness.

R

Working Weakened or Atrophied Muscles.

Broken bones, soft tissue injuries, neuromuscular disorders, and certain forms of illness can inhibit movement and exercise, causing muscles to become weak from disuse.
E-stim can be used to keep these muscles active and prevent atrophy.

R

Retraining Muscles After Surgery or Illness.

Occasionally, following orthopedic surgery or illness a patient may have difficulty contracting muscles at will. In such cases, E-stim can be used for muscle re-education. The electrical impulses contract the muscle involuntarily.

R

Aiding Athletic Recovery.

E-stim active recovery program settings use specific low-level frequencies to increase blood flow, remove lactic acid, release endorphins, and promote muscle relaxation.

What Our Clients Say

Cindy H

Today I am proud to say I can do steps, get down and up from the floor, and exercise in the gym.

I loved being a patient at Professional Physical therapy. I was always greeted with a smile and made to feel comfortable no matter what. Before therapy, I couldn’t climb or go downstairs foot over foot. My leg raises, stretches, step work all helped in ensuring my recovery after meniscus surgery was successful. Everyone was good at listening to how I was feeling, knew how to help progress my treatment and treat me with dignity no matter how silly I looked doing my exercises. Today I am proud to say I can do steps, get down and up from the floor, and exercise in the gym which I couldn’t do before starting here. Thank you for my time here, I will miss you all, and seeing everyone 2x a week!
