Do you suffer from chronic pain on a daily basis from a long-standing issue where there is nothing “physically wrong” per se? Let’s say you have diabetic neuropathy, fibromyalgia or arthritis and day in and day out, you are in agony at some point of the day, if not all day.
If this sounds like you, frequency-specific microcurrent (FSM) may be a treatment option that you want to consider. 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, reduce inflammation (swelling) and repair tissue.
FSM is most often used to treat pain, especially nerve and muscle pain, inflammation, and scar tissue, from the following conditions:
FSM is applied to the body with a device that delivers an extremely mild (one-millionth of an ampere) current called microcurrent. In FSM, specific frequencies are selected, depending on the tissue involved, to encourage the natural healing of the body and 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 called Adenosine triphosphate (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.
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.
