Frequency Specific Microcurrent (FSM) is a technique for treating pain using low-level (microamperage) electrical current.  The current is delivered to specific body parts in an attempt to relieve pain.  A frequency is the rate at which a sound wave or electronic pulse is produced, measurable in hertz (Hz).  In using FSM in the clinical setting, it has been indicated that various frequencies can be used to potentially reduce inflammation (swelling), repair tissue, and reduce pain.  It is a non-invasive and painless treatment that may help reduce pain without drugs or surgery.

FSM is currently being researched and utilized at the Cleveland Clinic.
