New Treatment for Fibromyalgia: Breakthrough 'Frequency Specific Microcurrent' Therapy Approved by FDA

Treatment Offers New Hope for Chronic Pain Patients

PORTLAND, OR -- (MARKET WIRE) -- May 24, 2006 -- Those who struggle with fibromyalgia and other chronic nerve and muscle pain finally have an advanced new medical recourse that provides unprecedented relief where traditional approaches have been ineffective. Frequency Specific Microcurrent (FSM), developed by Portland doctor Carolyn R. McMakin, has helped thousands of individuals battling fibromyalgia, shingles, athletic and trauma injuries, and many other pain-related conditions. FSM uses microamperage current and the resonance effects of frequencies on aggravated tissues using FDA-approved equipment.

"Frequency Specific Microcurrent treatment has been clinically proven in multiple studies to reduce inflammation and pain," Dr. McMakin said. "It is low-risk, non-invasive, and incredibly effective. Every day we do things with FSM that are simply not possible with any other known treatment."

Clinical studies have shown that FSM is particularly effective in treating fibromyalgia associated with neck injury origin, enabling many people to recover from this formerly incurable condition. Patients no longer meet the diagnostic criteria for fibromyalgia as set by the American College of Rheumatology (ARC). The National Institute of Arthritis and Musculoskeletal and Skin Diseases (NIAMS) conservatively estimates that the number of adults in the United States with fibromyalgia is about 3.7 million.

More than 900 practitioners in the U.S. and other countries now incorporate FSM into their programs. Dr. McMakin developed the protocols, and long-term clinical studies in the U.S. and other countries show that the microcurrents set at specific frequencies have been proven to reduce inflammation, nerve and muscle pain, shingles pain, visceral organ function and other conditions.


Carolyn McMakin, MA, DC is the clinical director of Integrated Pain Solutions and the Fibromyalgia and Myofascial Pain Clinic of Portland, Oregon. In addition to her clinical practice, she teaches Frequency Specific Microcurrent use at seminars in the United States and internationally. She has lectured at the National Institutes of Health and at conferences in the U.S., Europe, Canada and Australia.
