Objectives: To determine the effectiveness of interferential current on overactive bladder syndrome. Methodology: It is a quasi-experimental study. The duration of the study is 8 weeks. Total 40 patients were selected for this experimental study from Benazir Bhutto Hospital (BBH) Rawalpindi Pakistan. Sample was drawn through non-probability sampling technique called simple convenient sampling. Standard questionnaire was used for measurement through which results were calculated. Complete information about the patients including their biodata, symptomatology was entered in a Performa and then data was entered on the basis of Overactive Bladder Symptom Score (OABSS) scoring system. A total of 40 patients between the age of 5 to 12 years of age with no gender, religion, or ethnic background differentiation and with the diagnosis of overactive bladder were included. Results: it showed that baseline Mean pyuria was 1.75 Â± 0.493 SD and after treatment 1.25 Â± 0.439 SD and dysuria baseline mean is 1.78 Â± 0.474 SD and after treatment Mean is 1.32 Â± 0.423 SD. Hematuria baseline mean is 1.98 Â± 0.423 SD and after treatment mean is 1.78 Â± 0.158 SD mean frequency of urination is 2.0 Â± 0.234 and after treatment mean is 1.2 Â± 0.342 bed wetting mean is 1.62 Â± 0.423 SD and after treatment mean is 1.22 Â± 0.490 SD OABSS Score mean is 2.125 Â± 0.334 SD and after treatment mean is 1.55 Â± 0.597 SD all values showed significant difference. Conclusion: Interferential Current (IFC) Therapy is a very effective and beneficial tool to improve the symptoms and quality of life of the patients with Hinman syndrome.
