Frequency Specific Microcurrent Therapy (FSM) helps injured tissue heal faster and provides relief from pain caused by injury or chronic conditions. FSM is the application of specific micro-electrical frequencies to the injured part of the body.
Each type of tissue in your body has its own signature electrical frequency, which may be disrupted by injury or disease. FSM Therapy simply restores normal frequencies within the cells to specific tissues. This results in remarkable improvements in pain, inflammation and function.
FSM in my practice is used as a stand alone, or in conjunction with specific manual therapies. I have found it to be an amazing addition to my practice. It has helped me provide relief to for my clients pain.
My experience working with Low Back Pain (LBP) as historically been good. Consistently producing results where none others had. That being said there were a few that i could only help for short periods of time. Clients needing consistent and repeated efforts to maintain a lower pain level. Since the addition of FSM i have been able to lengthen the time between visits and in some cases the client using me only periodically for flares. In some cases i didn't even need to do any soft tissue manipulation at all. Simply hooked up the client to the machine while we sat and joked. I personally watched 1 client come in in pain he measured at 8+ and watched him walk out an hour later at level 1-3
FSM has demonstrated an improved response in my lymphedema clients. Fibrosis and protein removal are always difficult at best with lymphedema. With the FSM machine, reduction of swelling is easier. I have also found better results with the removal of proteins and softening of fibrosis in lymphedema clients. It also reduces the number of treatments as well as improving per treatement response.
One the most consistent and beneficial single element of FSM that i have experienced and seen, is its ability to reduce inflammation. The inflammatory response can be a consistent problem with many injuries and pathologies. Being able to reduce that responses negative effects (ie pain, presurgical, post surgical, acute injuries) makes it an amazing tool to help you my client with your health issues.
Some of the things i have seen beneficial result
Chronic Disk Pain
MTrP (Myofascial Trigger points)
Chronic sinus congestion
Lymphedema (All Stages)
Scar Tissue (softening and mobilizing)
Edema (Post Surgical)
and much much more - there seems no limit to its beneficial usage
