Muscles and Joints Aches and Pains

Muscle aches and Interferential Therapy (IFC).

Medical literature points out that there are at least three common causes of muscle pain. Namely, they are muscle tension, muscle stress, overuse, and minor injuries. These types of pain are usually localized, affecting just a few tendons of muscles, a joint, or a small part of the body. These pains could be caused by many transient sicknesses including strenuous exercises, stress, anxiety and tension, injuries, colds, flu, medication, and overconsumption of acidic meat and their allergens. In my opinion, Pain due to allergens related to meat is the most painful and most severe.

Muscle pain does not dissipate immediately after therapy with manipulation, Interferential therapy (IFC), or massage therapy. Rather, it may get a little worse overnight and start to show improvement starting the following morning.

To treat muscular issues, I use Interferential Therapy (IFC) from Germany, which makes my first choice of treatment since IFC achieves its goals of healing tissues by delivering

  1. a higher-frequency current that penetrates deeper into the tissue with less discomfort in contrast with Tense which delivers low-frequency current across the surface of the skin.
  2. It uses electrical current to reduce swelling,
  3. relieve pain and
  4. stimulate muscle.

Interferential therapy helps the body in the following

  1. release endorphins to promote recovery
  2. while increasing blood circulation to the area to support the body's natural healing process. 
  3. helps decrease swelling and inflammation and reduce or eliminate pain.

Interferential treatment applies two different frequencies to produce a medium-frequency current within the muscle tissues. Normally it may require 4-6 treatments to achieve lesser pain and aggravations. Chronic cases may require 10 treatments. A treatment is a collection of several applications on several areas of the body to address involved muscles.
