This paper demonstrated that Interferential Current (IFC) and Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS) failed to alter perceived activity in C and A-delta nerve fibres. Failure to elicit simple analgesic effects under experimental conditions suggests that any clinical analgesic effects of these modalities are likely to involve complex mechanisms.
