Frequency Specific Microcurrent (FSM)
What is FSM?

Frequency Specific Microcurrent is a non invasive and painless technique used by the professionals at Chiropractic and Holistic Center of Tampa for treating pain. Low-level electrical currents are delivered to specific parts of the body to potentially reduce inflammation, repair tissue, and relieve pain. FSM is delivered through a device that produces a very mild electrical current, similar to the current each cell in the human body naturally produces. These currents are so low that most patients do not even feel them. Mild effects of FSM include a warmth and softening of the affected tissues. The currents are delivered at different frequencies in certain parts of the body plagued by pain, swelling, and scar tissue. Frequencies have been identified for almost every single type of tissue in the human body, which makes this treatment a great option for a multitude of conditions. This treatment can be used for nerve and muscle pain associated with myofascial pain, fibromyalgia, sports injuries, concussion, and many other health concerns.

FSM assists by potentially increasing the production of a substance called ATP that’s inside injured tissues. ATP is the major source of energy for all cellular reactions in your body. Because treatment with FSM can increase the amount of ATP that’s created in your damaged cells by as much as 500%, this treatment may help with your recovery. Depending on the condition, treatment with FSM can “loosen” or soften the muscles, which can help relieve pain or stiffness.



FSM is most often used to treat pain, especially nerve and muscle pain, inflammation, and scar tissue, from the following conditions:
