FREQUENCY SPECIFIC MICROCURRENT
What is Frequency Specific Microcurrent (FSM)?
Microcurrent is a physical therapy modality that has been in use for over 16 years. Prominent professional athletes and medical pain specialists are embracing the positive effects of FSM on injury recovery and pain management. Microcurrent is measured in millionths of an amp. By comparison, a TENS unit and most other electrotherapies produce milliamps, 1000 times greater. Your own cells make current in micro amps.
What are the benefits of FSM therapy?
Microcurrent treatment is painless, increases speed of recovery, often promotes healing in conditions that have not responded to other treatment, and is cost effective. The effects are long lasting and the healing of tissue is more complete. Bill Romanowski brought FSM to the Oakland Raiders with his chiropractor in 2003. Now, NFL teams and athletes from other sports are using FSM in record numbers. The results are impressive and consistent. Chronic injuries clear up in record time. FSM can remodel scar tissue in one sixty-minute session that would take months to do manually. New injuries heal in record time. In animal studies, FSM increases the rate of cellular energy production by 500% and has been shown to reduce inflammation by 62% in four minutes. That's why Jeff Spencer uses his FSM training and his FSM units when he treats the US Postal team on the Tour de France. Terrell Owens was injured in December 2004 and wanted to be able to play in the Super Bowl six weeks later. FSM was started when he got out of surgery and was a part of the treatment that made his amazing recovery and spectacular performance possible in Super Bowl 2005. Everyone said the injury needed 13 to 18 weeks to heal. FSM, Terrell and the treatment team did it in six weeks.
How does it work?
Your body seems to use the Microcurrent energy to increase its own energy production. Microcurrent increases the production of ATP, your own chemical energy, by up to 500%. It also increases protein synthesis and waste product removal.
Why can't I feel it?
The current is so low it doesn't stimulate sensory nerves.
Why does the doctor change frequencies on the machine?
It has been observed that specific frequencies seem to target specific conditions in the tissues. In many cases the tissues will suddenly soften and become less painful when the correct combination of frequencies are chosen. This softening and the pain relief that comes with it seems to be long lasting and in some cases permanent.
How do the frequencies work?
The frequencies appear to work on the principle of biologic resonance. A singer can shatter a glass when the note resonates with the crystal structure of the glass. Microcurrent frequencies seem to be able to resonate with biologic tissue and change the structure of the tissue when the frequency is correct. Once the tissue is changed and stable it seems to be able to stay in the new configuration.
