Use of Interferential Current Therapy

At Hands of Hope NYC, we utilize the positive effects of low and medium frequency electrical stimulation of nerves to provide relief to patients.

Basically, it incorporates two independent channels of electrical current crossing each other to ease deep tissue pain. Electrotherapy treats chronic pain, musculoskeletal injuries, muscle wasting, and nerve pain by using targeted and controlled electrical currents which stimulate muscle tissue to contract, to reduce atrophy.
