Frequency Specific Microcurrent
Frequency Specific Microcurrent (FSM) as an exciting adjunctive treatment for nerve, muscle pain and many other conditions. FSM utilizes specific frequencies and micro amperage current to address over 200 common conditions. Micro amperage is in millionths of an amp and is so small that there is not enough current to stimulate sensory nerves which is why it is generally not felt. This is what separates it from traditional electrical stimulation devices that utilize sine wave and cause muscle contraction and stimulation. Micro amperage current is the same kind of current your body produces on its own within each cell. You can tell it is running by watching the conductance meter on the machine and some patients can feel a sense of warmth as circulation is improved to the area.
The frequencies used in microcurrent are electromagnetic pulses per second measured in hertz and in this case are on two channels. The frequency specific to addressing or neutralizing the condition is placed on channel A. The frequency to address the tissue affected is placed on channel B. The frequencies used in FSM are all less than 1000 Hz. Clinical application and study with frequency specific microcurrent has been found to address many common conditions. There can be no claims made for the effects of the frequencies until research has documented their effects. Current evidence is based on reports from patients and physicians noting results in the clinical setting. The exciting part is as we learn more clinically the application of FSM becomes endless. The other benefit is that there is generally no side effect or discomfort with the treatments.
