What is Frequency Specific Microcurrent (FSM)?

Physical Therapists Jeanne Scheele and Pat Alomar are now using Frequency Specific Microcurrent (FSM) therapy in the plan of care for their patients.

What is FSM?

FSM uses low-level electrical impulses, measured in hertz or pulses, to deliver microcurrents to targeted areas of the body to initiate healing. It has been used by licensed & trained practitioners for decades to treat a variety of conditions from joint and muscle pain to IBS and GERD. FSM is a safe, effective and non-invasive alternative treating pain & injury for anyone who is looking for non-opiate/non-pharmaceutical treatments.

How does it work?

As we know, the body hosts its very own electrical system and each type of tissue is known to operate at a specific electrical frequency. However, injury and illness can disrupt those frequencies making recovery more difficult. FSM delivers similar frequencies to targeted areas of the body with the goal of increasing cellular energy production (ATP), reducing pain and inflammation, and repairing and restoring tissue function.

What is it used for?

FSM can benefit a wide variety of conditions, including:

  • Sports Injuries
  • Neuromuscular Pain & Inflammation
  • Low Back or Neck Pain
  • Joint & Muscle Pain
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Myofascial Pain and Trigger Points
  • Nerve Pain / Peripheral Neuropathy
  • Scar Tissue
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Abdominal Adhesions
  • Pelvic Pain
  • Sciatica
  • Ehlers Danlos Syndrome
  • IBS / GERD
  • Lymphedema
  • Anxiety & Depression
  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
  • Headache / Migraine
  • TMJ
  • Tennis Elbow
  • and many other conditions not shown on this list

The results?

Jeanne and Pat have seen some amazing results so far! The following are testimonials from patients who received FSM as part of their physical therapy care.

“I have been receiving FSM on my shoulder and knee. It always gives me pain relief right away.” D.S., Patient

“I have been using FSM for my anxiety. My anxiety noticeably disappeared within the first few minutes of use and lasted throughout the day.” L.R., Patient

“You guys are not just restoring my body, you are taking me to what I can’t conceive of. I had never heard of FSM until now.” A.B., Patient

What about risks?

FSM is not recommended if you have are pregnant or if you have a known cancer.

How can I learn more?
