What is InterX Treatment and How does it work?

What Is InterX Treatment?

InterX is a type of therapy that uses ‘interactive neurostimulation’ to promote healing whilst being non-invasive. It is used as a new medical technology for treating pain, and inflammation promoting natural accelerated healing and for injury treatment.

InterX Therapy was originally designed for NASA and for astronauts to keep them in peak health. This treatment has been shown to be effective across many more conditions than originally expected, so it’s now used to help more patients be as active as possible along with been pain free. Athletes and high profile sports clubs use InterX therapy devices every day around the world, and it’s helping them to treat many different issues. InterX Therapy is used extensively in the USA and Australia with  an increase in Europe particularly Spain and Italy.

How Does InterX Treatment Work?

This is a unique technology to most others out there, and it’s based on an ancient technique from Tibet, known as “tapping”. Instead of tapping with the tips of the fingers, InterX devices use an electrical pulse at very specific frequencies. The feedback helps to adjust the pulse characteristics and this allows the body to hone in on the cause of the pain and injury, jump-starts the healing process and allows for a much faster recovery time for the patient. It’s a better way of helping pain non-invasively and without drugs. InterX is designed to promote the body’s own healing without a reliance on medication, providing natural and sustained pain relief without the associated side effects. It’s also excellent as an alternative for those who react to medication and so struggle to benefit from mainstream treatment.

Is InterX Safe?

InterX Treatment is a safe and effective form of treatment and works for both children and adults. It’s safe because the stimulation is incredibly precise - targeting the exact right place with the right intensity. It’s also time-dosed to avoid over-stimulation. The stimulation is limited to the skin, which is why it’s optimal for hip and knee replacements, with amazing results demonstrated in peer-reviewed studies (Click Here). It’s currently in use by many hospitals across the world, though currently not available through the NHS or Private medical healthcare. This is fairly typical as many homeopathic and osteopathic remedies are not available through the UK public healthcare system. The InterX is an outstanding tool for treating pain. The Medical device has all the required global safety and approval standards and InterX Experts have extensive clinical training

The Treatment

Treatment with InterX Therapy typically takes anywhere between 1 hour 15 minutes and 1 hour and 30 minutes. Patients will typically feel pain relief and or an increase in mobility post first treatment, which is why it’s cited to be so effective. The course of treatment will vary from patient to patient, but generally it is important to have a series of 6 to 10  treatments close together to be effective in the long term.


Patients should wait and watch to monitor the changes in their body. A Pain Diary is available here.  Some patients will feel the difference straight away, others it will take a few days. The area where the InterX was applied can sometimes ache after treatment. Don’t worry, this is a common reaction and it should be noted in the pain diary. As the treatment is progressive as indicated in the diagram below, pain drops on average 20% post treatment so 6 treatments lead to a significant reduction in pain. InterX Clinic will be able to locate the source of the pain and use the InterX device to help.

Benefits of InterX Treatment

There are many benefits to choosing InterX for pain relief treatment, and these include:

You may not need to use medication to relieve pain when having InterX Treatment. A lack of drugs can dramatically reduce the potential side effects that you’re exposed to throughout recovery. Many Clients reduce pain medication throughout the course of treatment and a significant number don't need any medication post a InterX Treatment Plan

InterX Pain Clinic use mobility movements and exercise to help enhance the InterX effect for greater healing.

This treatment is non-invasive. You don't have to deal with messy gels or lubricants, electrodes or wires. It’s all done with one instrument and the pulse only penetrates the skin a fraction of a mm to interact with the nerve system.

You can combine InterX very easily with other therapies.

What To Expect From Treatment

The Goal for InterX Pain Clinic is to be Pain Free!

In most cases a 80% + reduction in pain post first series of Treatment. InterX Treatment is a comfortable treatment that involves applying the device to the skin. The electrical pulse will feel like a vibration or tingle and your therapist will adjust it as necessary throughout the treatment process. Depending on the complexity of your pain, the treatment can last up to an hour and a half and you’ll likely feel relief quite quickly. The full effects of the treatment will be felt within a couple of hours and you’ll benefit from it for a few days. A series of treatments can help you to feel the benefits long term.

Activating the nerve endings is important, but it may cause a little aggravation of the symptoms your pain gives you, such as exhaustion or light-headedness. You may also experience the positive side effect of better sleep. It's essential to drink about a litre of extra water post treatment to help with flushing out toxins.

Warning! Some patients have a dramatic pain drop and feel great, its important to realise that in this instance your body is healing and not to do anything out of the ordinary and maintain your treatment plan.

Whether on its own or with other therapies, InterX can be an excellent treatment option to help with your healing and recovery process.
