Pre- Modulated Interferential Therapy Units for Chronic Pain Are Better Than Standard IFT
Historically clinicians have been taught that interferential therapy ( IFT) is the result of two currents crossing each other in the area of pain within the body. On paper this looks great when you see what is suppose to be going on in the body as a result of the current crossings, but tissues in the body do not respond as indicated in these nicely drawn photos.Due to the body having multiple types of tissues such as bone, cartilage, muscle, nerve, skin etc. the electrical currents are often stored until the cells have reached capacity and then suddenly released. This process is much like the old semiconductors used in the computer industry. Each tissue type has different electrical capacities which regulates whether the current flows evenly between the electrodes attached to the painful area. Due to this the illustrations do not show actual reality but show pictures of what the current combination would look like if all tissues had the same electrical characteristics which we know is not true for differing tissues.
Interferential therapy has been shown to be the most effective form of electrotherapy in the world for chronic pain control.
Are there forms of interferential therapy better than others? The answer appears to be yes there is. That better form of interferential is called "pre-modulated".
The premodulation method of creating the interference effect has been developed in recent years and is known as premodulated interferential. With this method, both outputs of the unit provide a carrier frequency of 4,000 Hz. However, each output has the ability to premodulate or burst the frequency within the unit and does not rely on the fickle nature of our own human cells and tissues. Only the best engineered units have the ability to synchronize perfectly these bursts in the same polarity, at the same time, in order to create premodulated interferential.
Within the unit there are uniform resistances, capacities, etc. and the combination of the two currents can be carefully crafted and controlled. Once the combination is created then that actual combined waveform is then sent down the cables to the electrodes and enters the body in the most beneficial forms. The difference is better, longer lasting and immediate pain relief occurring during the initial treatment. It is imperative that any chronic pain patient know upon the first treatment that interferential works for them.
Today quality companies offer patients the free trial of interferential to establish the efficacy for that patient. By using pre-modulated units the true pain relieving effect is greatly enhanced allowing the patient the experience of true modulation and controlling the outcome so the trial is successful.
MedFaxx offers free no obligation trials of the Infrex Plus to establish the benefits so the patient knows whether the unit will provide the relief they want or not. It's part of the process of believing in the product and it's ability coupled with a desire to help those in need.
