Frequency Specific Microcurrent

Chances are you haven't heard of frequency-specific microcurrent (FSM) before. That's okay since it isn't often talked about. But it's interesting because this cutting-edge, non-invasive therapy can be beneficial for many individuals.

FSM treatments can offer relief from long-term pain or discomfort involving the musculoskeletal system. They stimulate the body's ability to self-heal and repair.

Let's talk more about what frequency-specific microcurrent treatments are and how they work.

What Is Frequency-Specific Microcurrent?

Frequency-specific microcurrent (FSM) is a pain-relieving method that involves the use of low-level electrical current. It's described as low level, as you might not even feel any sensation during your treatment. The current is directed to a specific area in the body to help repair tissue and reduce pain and inflammation.

The term β€œfrequency” refers to the rate at which an electronic pulse or sound wave is produced. This occurs repeatedly. For FSM, your treatment provider can use various frequencies depending on your needs.

How Does FSM Work?

Similar to transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS), another pain-relieving treatment, FSP also employs micro amperage or gentle electrical currents. These mild currents are so accurate and are administered in sequence.

It's important to go to a licensed practitioner because the correct frequencies must be determined first. Your provider performs a comprehensive evaluation of your body before proceeding with the actual treatment.

A special device is used for the treatment. This device applies current to the treatment area. Depending on the tissue that needs repair or strengthening, your provider will select the appropriate frequencies. The right frequency can vary for almost every tissue in the body.

FSM helps increase ATP production in weak or damaged cells, which facilitates healing and recovery. ATP is a substance found in damaged tissues. FSM can also help reduce muscle pain or stiffness, allowing you to increase your range of motion and move more comfortably.

What Conditions Can FSM Help Treat?

Frequency-specific microcurrent is a non-surgical treatment. It may be worth considering if you're looking into natural alternatives to pain relief.

FSM can be integrated into a comprehensive treatment plan or taken on its own. It can be used to treat several conditions, including the following:

  • Headaches
  • Sports injuries
  • Arthritis
  • Spinal disc injuries
  • Joint pain
  • Bone pain
  • Irritable bowel syndrome
  • Wounds
  • On the other hand, FSM isn't recommended for pregnant women or those with pacemakers, among many others. Consult with your primary healthcare provider first to determine if FSM is safe for you to try.

Does FSM Hurt?

In general, FSM shouldn't hurt. This is one of its advantages. It is non-surgical and painless, and the currents are so mild that you might not even feel them. What you're likely to feel are warm sensations as the treated issues are softened.

The effects of frequency-specific microcurrent treatments can last for many days or even longer. If you're experiencing acute discomfort, you're likely to achieve relief quickly.

Note that the effectiveness of the treatment begins with your diagnosis. Your diagnosis must be accurate so your treatment provider can also focus on areas that need the most attention. The current must be directed to where the pain is originating.

Dr. Nenshi has been invaluable during my pregnancy and postpartum journey, as well as treating my little baby girl. During pregnancy, she was able to help with low back and pelvis/hip pain, which significantly improved my quality of life during those last months. Postpartum she has been incredibly helpful with the aches and pains I have had due to breastfeeding, as well as improving the actual process of breastfeeding by waking up my nervous system. In regards to my newborn, she was able to help with some serious gas and digestion problems - which improved her mood and sleep tremendously! While treating her for those pesky tummy problems, she also noticed that she was favouring turning her neck to the left side and struggling with turning to the right. She was able to fix that as well, before it turned into more serious problems. Overall, I highly recommend Dr. Nenshi for almost all pains during your prenatal, postnatal and newborn journey :). She gives great care to her patients (young and old), and can usually see you with short notice. She is now seeing multiple members of my family.

My lovely bride of 36 years developed painful sciatic, hip, and foot pain that eventually became almost debilitating to her. 3 months with Dr. Nenshi ( 4-5 visits?) and she is now pain free. We are so grateful to her, it’s been a quality of life miracle.

I just want to mention how wonderful Dr. Nenshi is! She is more than just a chiropractor. Her neurological knowledge is exceptional! She was so thorough in her assessment during our first meeting that it took a couple of hours. Her caring, commitment and compassion goes beyond the normal standard of care. She truly wants to help get you better and she won't give up! I can't say enough good things about Dr. Nenshi and I would be remiss if I didn't mention her amazing assistant Rachelle, who is just awesome as well! Ryan

We met Dr.Nenshi first time on November 17, 2020. It was in regards to our son's concussion. She truly knows magic. The way she helped our son to go one step at a time patiently and took true care of him it was amazing. Best part was she always had some solution for his problem. It was a long process and she held our hand to go through that rough phase. Not only concussion, she treated my son later for his partial ligament tear and some neck and shoulder pain too. She is amazing and she will never give up. Thank you so much Dr.Nenshi for giving us back our son as he was before the injury. Anwit loves you and depends on you. We truly appreciate her professionalism with personal touch.
