Nonpharmacologic Treatment of Neuropathic Pain Using Frequency Specific Microcurrent

Frequency-specific microcurrent (FSM) has been used for 10 years by numerous practitioners in various specialties (MDs, DCs, NDs, PTs) to treat myofascial pain and neuropathic pain in clinical practice (1-3). This retrospective analysis of patients treated for neuropathic pain in the author’s clinic presents a collected case report in patients treated for monoradicular pain, in an effort to quantify the results produced with FSM treatment of neuropathic pain. The proposed mechanisms of peripheral neuropathic pain will be compared with the data associated with dual-channel, frequency-modulated microamperage current to suggest a model for how frequency-modulated microamperage current could be producing the observed results. Central neuropathic pain from postthalamic stroke and phantom limb pain, and peripheral diabetic neuropathies have been successfully treated using this method, but those types of neuropathic pain were excluded from this analysis. read more
