Frequency Specific Microcurrent

​Frequency Specific Microcurrent (FSM) is a technique for treating pain by using low-level electrical current. The current is delivered to certain parts of the body in an attempt to relieve the pain.

In using FSM to treat pain, it’s been found that various frequencies can be used to potentially reduce inflammation (swelling), repair tissue, and reduce pain.

How does frequency-specific microcurrent work?

FSM is applied to the body with a device that delivers a mild current, similar to TENS.   However, with FSM, specific frequencies related to to injury or tissue type 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.

What conditions can be treated with frequency-specific microcurrent?

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

  • disc injuries
  • fibromyalgia
  • acute and chronic neuropathy
  • neuromas (overgrowth and scarring to a nerve after an injury)
  • tendinopathy (inflammation and/or swelling of the tendon)
  • acute (sudden) and chronic (long-term) musculoskeletal injuries
  • chronic bone pain
  • arthritis
  • disc injuriesand facet-based pain
  • viscerally-referred pain
  • concussions
  • headaches
  • plantar fasciitis (pain in the heel and foot)
  • sports injuries

Is frequency-specific microcurrent painful?

Treatment with FSM is non-invasive and painless. The currents used in FSM are so low that the patient often does not feel them. During FSM treatment, patients may notice certain effects, including warmth and a softening of affected tissues.

Testimonials

I found Dr. Morrone to be very pleasant and I find her approach refreshing. Other chiropractors I have visited basically give you an adjustment without discussing the neurological connections. Looking forward to working with her and also to see how she may be able to help my daughter.
