TENS/EMS/IFC


Jump to categories      Jump to products

Electrical frequencies from EMS, IFC and TENS units are used to assist in pain relief from a variety of conditions.


These units are most often used for drug-free pain relief.  If you frequently experience pain and your doctor recommends TENS, EMS or IFC therapy, we can help you get what you need.  You may also be interested in our other Pain Relief categories.
 

What are the differences between TENS, EMS and IFC?

 

TENS Units
Block pain signals, lower penetration, long lasting pain relief.
EMS Units
Deeper penetration, helps reduce muscle atrophy.
IFC Units
Deeper penetration, reduces swelling and pain, restores muscle function.
Combination Units
Use combination therapies to increase treatment flexibility.

TENS units use either low frequencies (2-4 Hz) or high frequencies (80-100 Hz) to block pain impulses to the brain.  This aids the body in producing natural substances that relieve pain and increases blood flow to the injured area.  Relief often lasts for hours.

EMS units (or Electrical Muscle Stimulation)  helps prevent and reduce muscle atrophy, which is a weakening of muscle tone after surgery or injury.  It can improve range of motion and blood flow as well as endurance and muscle strength.  It is used for pain management by helping relieve pain from tight, spastic or sore muscles.  EMS signals pentrate deeper than TENS signals and the frequency is usually above 200 Hz.

IFC units (interferential current) is a deeper TENS.  It modulates at a high carrier waveform frequency of about 4000 Hz which penetrates deeper and with less user discomfort.  In the tissues the waveform is canceled out which produces a TENS like signal deep under your skin.  These units are used to reduce swelling and pain, speed healing and restore muscle function.  If you have not found relief with a TENS unit, anecdotal evidence suggests an IFC unit may help more effectively.
