Electrical Stimulation and Interferential Therapy in Ellijay, GA

At your first appointment, your Physical Therapist will perform a thorough evaluation and develop a personalized rehabilitation treatment program with you that may include Electrical stimulation/interferential therapy.


WHAT Is Electrical Stimulation and Interferential Therapy ?

Electrical stimulation (e-stim) and Interferential use electrical pulses to mimic the action of signals coming from neurons (cells in your nervous system). These mild electrical currents target either muscles or nerves.

E-stim therapy for muscle recovery sends signals to targeted muscles to make them contract. By causing repeated muscle contractions, blood flow improves, helping repair injured muscles.

Electrical stimulation/interferential therapy

Interferential is a type of e-stim that focuses on pain relief that sends signals on a different wavelength so they reach the nerves, rather than the muscles. Interferential current can block pain receptors from being sent from nerves to the brain.

Benefits of Electrical Stimulation and Interferential therapy


Relieving Muscle Spasms.

Electric muscle stimulation can relax muscles, easing tightness and soreness.


Working Weakened or Atrophied Muscles.

Broken bones, soft tissue injuries, neuromuscular disorders, and certain forms of illness can inhibit movement and exercise, causing muscles to become weak from disuse.
E-stim can be used to keep these muscles active and prevent atrophy.


Retraining Muscles After Surgery or Illness.

Occasionally, following orthopedic surgery or illness a patient may have difficulty contracting muscles at will. In such cases, E-stim can be used for muscle re-education. The electrical impulses contract the muscle involuntarily.


Aiding Athletic Recovery.

E-stim active recovery program settings use specific low-level frequencies to increase blood flow, remove lactic acid, release endorphins, and promote muscle relaxation.

What Our Clients Say

Deana Sutton

Facility and staff were amazing. They welcomed our son in and made him feel at home while providing him with the tools necessary to help him overcome a back injury and get back on the baseball field for his sophomore year. I highly recommend Larry Bryant and staff for all physical therapy needs.

Alan Ramfjord

I have been a patient and a wellness client of Bryant Physical Therapy since 2003. I have personally had both knees and left hip replaced. I have had neck surgery as well. My rehab with Bryant Physical Therapy has been excellent on all occasions. Larry, Mike, Brett and Sherri have been knowledgeable, caring and concerned about my recovery every step of the way. As a teacher and coach for 30+ years I have had the opportunity to interact with many physical therapists. I would recommend Bryant Physical Therapy over anyone else. Their knowledge is superior. They spend time with each patient and work to achieve the best outcome possible. They are very fortunate to have 3 outstanding techs working for them. Melinda, Sonya and Priscilla have a tremendous amount of experience and expertise between them. They are more than capable of managing the exercises and therapy that are prescribed. For the past 8 years I have been a wellness patient at Bryant Physical Therapy. I go 5 days a week. I have watched the therapists working with patients for literally hundreds of hours. They have been knowledgeable and caring with each patient. I have seen them having discussions with each patient. From personal experience they have changed exercises and therapy methods to help me achieve my goals. I have seen many patient’s come to Bryant’s Physical Therapy because of an unsatisfactory result from other therapists. I would recommend Bryant Physical Therapy no matter what your age or physical problem.
