Frequency Specific Microcurrents
What is Frequency Specific Microcurrents (FSM)
FSM is an effective modality in pain management. Low amperage electrical currents (that cannot be felt) are conducted through the body. These currents are programed with specific frequencies for specific areas of the body and conditions. Specific frequencies have been found to potentially reduce inflammation, stimulate tissue repair, reduce pain and shorten the duration of shingle and herpes outbreaks. FSM can reduce the healing time from sports injuries, surgeries, and accidents.
Practitioners must be trained and certified in the use of this equipment--which is not widely available. I have certification, extensive training, and four years of incorporating this therapy with my clientele.
The frequencies have demonstrated to increase cellular ATP by 500%, increase protein synthesis, and reduced cellular inflammation.
The devices are approved in the category of TENS devices. The devices have a 510K listing with the FDA. However, TENS deliver a thousand times more current then FSM devices. Rather than bombarding and scattering the electrical message through the body, FSM uses specific frequencies that resonate at a cellular level.
Conditions that benefit from FSM include:
Carpal tunnel syndrome
Fibromyalgia from spine trauma
Irritable Bowel syndrome
Kidney stone pain
Myofascial pain and trigger points
Neuromuscular pain and inflammation
Post herpetic neuralgia
Post surgical pain
Spinal disc pain
Tendon and ligament injury
Thoracic outlet syndrome
