What Is INDIBA Activ?
INDIBA is a trailblazing therapeutic modality that uses radiofrequency to accelerate the natural recovery of the body and restore mobility.
INDIBA radiofrequency therapy increases circulation to the target areas by enhancing vasodilation — the expansion of blood vessels. This increase in blood flow brings higher concentrations of oxygen and nutrients to the targeted treatment area, which helps to speed up the healing process. In addition, increased circulation helps to reduce inflammation, which is a common cause of the pain experienced from a musculoskeletal injury.
The therapeutic device applies longwave radio frequencies at 448 kHz externally through the skin to penetrate and stimulate tissue repair noninvasively, with or without a thermal effect. This creates improved metabolic reactions, facilitating an inflammatory response essential for the body’s natural recovery.
At HelloPhysio, our radiofrequency therapy utilizes patented technology to complement the practitioner’s trained hands to accelerate the repair process of damaged tissues in both the acute inflammation and chronic phases of an injury.
How Does INDIBA Improve Cellular Function to Reduce Pain?
INDIBA radiofrequency therapy has become increasingly popular in the field of physiotherapy for the treatment of musculoskeletal conditions such as strains, sprains, tendonitis, bursitis and joint pain.
Clinical research suggests that radiofrequency therapy achieves a positive effect by increasing blood perfusion and increasing oxygen and nutrients in the affected area through its ability to induce a thermal effect. Due to its ability to target specific areas of the body, INDIBA radiofrequency therapy in Singapore is an effective clinical modality when part of a comprehensive treatment plan for our patients.
In molecular studies, radiofrequency has been shown to stimulate stem cell proliferation by targeting soft, living tissues using radiofrequency equipment guided by a therapist’s unique skills. In addition, the physical, hands-on modality guides the tool by increasing deep blood flow and nutrient uptake to the injured tissues. The effect of the combined therapies often provides immediate relief to break the pain cycle, and relax muscles, and improves natural tissue regeneration as a valuable secondary outcome.
Injured soft tissue heals faster through the reabsorption of post-injury hematomas as arteries open to increase blood flow deep into injured areas; lymphatic drainage increases, and swelling or bruising reduces.
Using INDIBA as a Comprehensive Treatment Plan
INDIBA can be used alone or in conjunction with other treatments, like Shockwave Therapy, for improved healing outcomes, even within the first treatment session.
INDIBA radiofrequency therapy is a safe, regenerative technology that can help you regain a pain-free life. The clinically-proven therapy is used in the successful treatment to improve post-training muscle recovery, treat sports injuries and address degenerative osteoarthritic conditions. The number of sessions depends on the condition or injury and typically requires multiple sessions.
The innovative treatment approach can help reduce pain and swelling, improve chronic conditions, aid in tissue rehabilitation, enhance post-surgical healing, and improve mobility and function. It is an effective treatment for a wide range of conditions, including osteoarthritis, musculoskeletal injuries, joint/neck/lower back pain, muscle tears, sprains, fractures, tendinopathies and bursitis.
INDIBA therapy can reduce pain and increase mobility in chronic dysfunctions, such as osteoarthritis, that deteriorate and erode the cushioning of cartilage between bones that help joints move.
INDIBA Activ Treatment Benefits for Sports Rehabilitation & Performance
INDIBA radiofrequency is a perfect complement to sports physiotherapy. Elite athletes and professional teams around the world use this ground-breaking technology to recover faster from injuries, prevent injuries from recurring, and accelerate the natural tissue repair process.
INDIBA therapy is used to treat acute injuries and also chronic tendinopathies by optimizing healing, reducing overall pain, and decreasing recovery time to get athletes back to the sports they love faster.
- Using radiofrequency during the acute stage of an injury stimulates healing without additional damage to the tissue.
- Increasing tissue temperature and elasticity keeps muscles supple to prevent recurring injuries.
- Shortening muscle recovery time to improve performance by repairing muscle tears quicker.
Radiofrequency can be applied during the acute, subacute and/or chronic stages of an injury. As athletes are more vulnerable to injuries, fast and effective treatments like INDIBA are essential to reduce downtime and recover from intensive training schedules to maintain top performance.

INDIBA for Knee Pain
Osteoarthritic conditions are one of the leading causes of pain and disability, with more than 23 percent of Singaporeans between 18 to 50 suffering from chronic joint pains. This number increases as we age; the disease affects up to 80 percent of people above the age of 65.
Radiofrequency technology is applied in acute, subacute and chronic stages of injury treatment.

INDIBA treatment for knee pain provides effective therapy to stop the progression of knee osteoarthritis by reducing pain and improving function.
Often patients reduce their pain with a combination of prescribed exercises and anti-inflammatories. However, this creates a cycle of adjusting medication dosage to reduce persistent long-term pain. As comorbidities are on the rise, patients are beginning to search for other natural solutions for their chronic pain and degenerative arthritic condition.
At HelloPhysio, our clinical team works to improve function and reduce pain — without medications — in patients with knee osteoarthritis. Depending on your medical history and orthopedic treatment plan, you may benefit from conservative treatments like INDIBA as a precursor before considering more invasive surgical procedures.
What Are INDIBA Treatment Side Effects?
INDIBA therapy has relatively no side effects in most patients and is completely safe as it is innocuous to the body. As the therapy works to activate collagen, fibroblasts and elastin in our body’s cells, it doesn’t damage the skin; rather, it enhances the body’s ability to stimulate stem cell proliferation and activate positive and negative cell ions.
As the therapy increases thermal temperatures to induce the healing response, some people with very sensitive skin may experience momentary, mild redness that fades quickly.
For patients preparing for surgery or post-operation, INDIBA prepares the body for invasive surgeries while reducing any bleeding or post-surgery edemas and hematomas, respectively.

INDIBA Activ technology is a great way to reduce the risk of injury and enhance sports performance. Preparing your body for exercise can help you reach optimal performance while protecting it from injuries. INDIBA’s benefits are far-arching beyond an injured state; it can potentially be used on healthy athletes before, during and after intense training or races by improving tissue flexibility and flushing out hydrogen ions that accumulate when muscles contract. Additionally, keeping our muscles supple prevents injuries due to excessive stress or poor recovery from microtrauma, which may cause long-term damage.
INDIBA has been around for more than 35 years. The non-invasive technology increases the production of collagen, which is the main protein found in connective tissue. As collagen is one of the main components of joint tissue, a deficiency of collagen can lead to joint stiffness, osteoarthritis, weakened muscles, pain and inflammation.
INDIBA therapy increases blood circulation. Localized vasodilation is important for muscle growth and strength. Our blood vessels relax and widen to allow more blood to flow through. When the walls of our blood vessels relax, the widening allows more oxygen-rich blood to reach the muscles used during training, decrease pressure on the heart and regulate body temperature — all integral to optimal sports performance.
Athletes from all fields have benefitted from INDIBA technology to reach their peak performance, including basketball players, cyclists, football stars and tennis greats. When an individual athlete is injured, it can affect the entire team; that’s why our team of sports physiotherapists helps athletes recover faster during the acute stages of an injury by combining manual therapy with trailblazing adjunctive modalities like INDIBA Activ.
