Interferential stimulator

You may have heard of interferential stimulators but wondered what it is or how it could positively impact your life. An interferential stimulator is often confused with a TENS machine, and while they are similar, they are certainly not the same thing. An interferential stimulator relies on an interferential current. An interferential current is distinguished by the crossing of two electrical medium, with different frequencies that work together to stimulate large impulse fibers.

If you are dealing with chronic pain you may want to consider using an interferential stimulator, as the two frequencies come together to interfere with the transmission of pain signals from the nerves along the spinal cord. The stimulator uses interferential waves that are not met with obstacles when they are crossing the skin and entering the underlying tissue. The tissue penetration can be adjusted via the machine to stimulate the nerve fibers for an increased blood flow. This is often confused with a TENS machine but it is different because it provides a deep penetration of the tissue. The interferential stimulator is often more comfortable and will also help to increase circulation while doing away with pain.

The interferential stimulator works on the same methodology of TENS, but it is a deeper form. The reason for this is that the higher frequency carrier waveform is able to go deeper into the skin than a traditional TENS unit. While you are going deeper, you are getting a better level of stimulation with more comfort. The result is that you are getting more pain management because the electrical pulses are going deeper, but they are going to be more comfortable. When you look at it this way, it becomes obvious that those who have found the TENS machine to be uncomfortable would benefit from trying an interferential stimulator.

The interferential stimulator has been used for many years in many different settings. Studies have shown that patients who use an interferential stimulator after surgery usually develop less in the way of post operative complications than those who take only narcotics to help manage pain. Because the interferential stimulator also helps with circulation, it can help to diminish the recovery times that are often associated with surgery. Those who continue to use a Interferential stimulator once they return home will find that they are able to partake in their normal day to day activities sooner than those who do not.

Many people are scared of the interferential stimulator at first because they assume that it is going to hurt due to the electrical pulses. While it may be frightening in theory, all you will feel is a buzzing sensation on the surface of the skin. While you feel the slight buzzing during the treatment, there are no side effects after use. For those who do not like the side effects of narcotics, the Interferential stimulator may be a great option.

Most people can safely and effectively use an interferential stimulator. Those who are pregnant, fitted with a pace maker, or have heart disease should not use an Interferential stimulator. If you are not sure if any of these apply to you, you should consult your doctor before you begin using a unit. There are many different pain sources that the interferential stimulator is well equipped to treat. Those recovery from hernia repair, gall bladder treatment, orthopedic surgery, fractures, sports injuries, and more will all find that the Interferential stimulator will help to reduce pain, speed healing, and allow for them to get back to their normal life before they would have expected to without the use of the unit.
