Frequency-specific microcurrent (FSM)

FSM is a technique for treating pain by using low-level electrical current. It is applied to the body with a device that delivers a mild current. Microcurrent is an extremely mild electrical current (one millionth of an ampere). The human body actually produces its own current within each cell. In FSM, depending on the tissue involved, specific frequencies are selected to encourage natural healing of the body and to reduce pain. Frequencies have been identified for nearly every type of tissue in the body. One of the ways FSM works is by potentially increasing the production of the substance ATP in injured tissues. ATP is the major source of energy for all cellular reactions in the body. Because treatment with FSM can increase ATP production by as much as 500% in damaged tissues, this may help with the recovery process. Depending on the condition, treatment with FSM can “loosen” or soften the muscles, which can help relieve pain and/or stiffness.

FSM is most often used to treat pain, especially nerve and muscle pain, inflammation, and scar tissue, from the following conditions:

  • Shingles
  • Kidney stones
  • Irritable bowel syndrome
  • Disc injuries
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Diabetic neuropathy
  • Tendinopathy (inflammation and/or swelling of the tendon)
  • Acute (sudden) and chronic (long-term) musculoskeletal injuries
  • Acute and chronic neuropathic (nerve) pain
  • Arthritis
  • Disc injuries
  • Headaches
  • Plantar fasciitis (pain in the heel and foot)
  • Sports injuries
  • Wounds
