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

Ken S

My World Was Put Back In Place.

When I initially started coming to Professional Physical Therapy, I had vertigo and things were a mess. Sometimes I was dizzy regardless of what I did, sometimes it was totally random. The room would spin, the ground would move, walking was hard, nausea was constant – not fun. Dr. Patt worked with me and my world was put back in balance. No dizzy spells, no problems standing and getting up from bed. They were totally amazing and great. Thank you!

Thank you ProPt for making me better and improving my way of life.

Before starting physical therapy here at ProPt, I had been experiencing knee pain during activities I enjoyed doing, like running. I was very frustrated because I could not participate in the physical activities I love to do! But ProPt changed that Dr.Patt, Sue, and Amber all helped me get better to the point where I can now run and enjoy all the physical activity I loved. I am so grateful for the care I received from ProPT and the awesome staff! Thank you ProPt for making me better and improving my way of life.
