Anyone Tried Frequency Specific Microcurrent Therapy?

Posted by cwallen9 @cwallen9, Sat, Nov 16 10:13am

I went to Lancaster County Osteopathic and Integrative Health in Gap, PA to see if they could help with my severe neuropathy pain in my feet, legs, hands, and arms. They recommended an InspirStar Frequency Specific Microcurrent machine. I am renting a unit for a month ($250) to see if it helps. It is supposed to target specific areas by applying a microcurrent signal at specific low frequencies. Has anyone else tried this? Did it help? They also recommended a supplement called CytoQuel that is supposed to help reduce inflammation. Has anyone tried this?

Hi @cwallen9, I've read a little about frequency specific microcurrent therapy but have no experience with it. I'm wondering if @jimhd has any experience with it. I know it won't help my neuropathy because my symptoms are only numbness and the frequency specific therapy is addressing the pain symptoms according to what I've read. Cleveland Clinic has a good overview, procedure details and possible risk/benefits here:

Practical Pain Management also has a Microcurrent Electrical Therapy (MET): A Tutorial that provides some good information:

I have no experience with CytoQuel but a recent clinical pilot study (May 2019) shows it significantly reduced chronic pain:

Thanks for the links, John. I saw the second one on CytoQuel. I will let you know how it goes. So far I have had two days of less nerve pain.

I have a spinal cord stimulator, but I don't know if Inspirspar is anything like the stimulator. It must not involve surgery. I'll be interested in hearing the long term effects. What pain are you targeting? My stimulator has given me a lot of relief from peripheral neuropathy pain in my feet.

The Frequency Specific Microcurrent (FSM) uses electrode pads that you put on your body. It doesn't work by jamming the pain signal. It sends a "normal" nerve signal to your brain so that it retrains it to not sense pain in that area. No surgery needed. I have neuropathy in feet, legs, hands, arms, and even my mouth.
