FSM – Frequency Specific Microcurrent

Frequency Specific Microcurrent (FSM) is an exciting method for treating nerve and muscle pain and many other conditions using specific frequencies and micro amperage current. There are many practitioners in the USA, Ireland, Australia, and Canada using FSM to create changes in patients to reduce pain and improve health. The frequency specific effect is remarkable and reproducible. Most of the time FSM produces immediate dramatic changes in tissue that makes it an indispensable tool in treating pain and many other health concerns.


For example, there is one frequency combination that is only useful for shingles and herpes. In the shingles prodrome it eliminates the pain and prevents the blisters from breaking out. In herpes outbreaks, it eliminates the pain and heals the blisters in hours with only a one hour treatment.

The frequencies were developed in the early 1900’s and were used with funky looking electronic equipment that fell out of use in the 1940’s. Microcurrent was introduced as a battery operated physical therapy modality in the 1980’s in Europe and the USA. Microcurrent devices deliver frequencies and current in millionths of an amp and have been shown in published studies to increase energy (ATP) production in cells by 500%.

FSM has changed what is possible in pain management. FSM can treat chronic myofascial pain quickly, easily and comfortably. It is one of the safest and most cost effective therapies available. Nerve pain from nerve traction injuries, disc bulges, herniations and shingles can be treated successfully by FSM practitioners. There are protocols for kidney stone pain, disc and facet joint generated pain that give rapid and often lasting relief. The protocol for fibromyalgia associated with neck trauma offers pain relief, unprecedented changes in inflammatory cytokines and hope for the millions patients who suffer from this condition.

Doctors, physical and occupational therapists, physiotherapists, chiropractors, osteopaths, acupuncturists, nurses and massage therapists have been using FSM over the past few years to successfully treat scar tissue, tendonitis, ligament injuries, nerve pain, fractures, peripheral neuropathies, chronic fatigue, irritable bowel syndrome and many other medical conditions associated with inflammation.
