Instructors: Carolyn McMakin & Kim Pittis
Module 1 includes information from the first 2.5 days of the Core seminar. Course content includes protocols and cases:
Myofascial Pain including facet and disc pain.
Nerve Pain including pain from Ligamentous laxity, upper cervical tension headaches, treating Ehrler Danlos, neck and low back pain, Spinal cord generated muscle pain, visceral conditions causing muscle pain, Treating injuries in week 1-4, recognizing and treating shingles that masquerades as a new injury, Treating shoulder and knee pain and injuries, Treating injuries from onset to week 1. Includes Postoperative protocols for many common surgeries. Concussion protocol, Vagal tone, Emotional Frequencies and protocols for depression anxiety, grief, and low back pain. Includes all precautions and contraindications. The module includes
Five hands-on Practicums and an Implementation Practicum on incorporating FSM into practice with suggestions on material needed, scheduling and billing. At the end of 3 days, the learner will be competent and safe to use FSM in most pain and injury conditions and will be ready to move on to Module 2 or the Advanced depending on practice focus and personal interest.
Core Module I – Pain & Injury
Instructors: Carolyn McMakin & David Musnick.
Module 2 can be taken as a stand-alone training for Frequency Specific Microcurrent. In this module, all of the basic information will be taught for the clinician to start practicing Frequency Specific Microcurrent. This module is appropriate for any clinician but is especially appropriate for MDs, NDs, DOs, NP. LACs, OTs, and PTs that treat any neurological conditions or any internal conditions(Heart, Lungs, GI, Renal, Hormonal, Reproductive, Skin, Lymphatic, etc). This module also covers Frequency Specific Microcurrent for emotional issues. This module will integrate Functional Medicine into use of Frequency Specific Microcurrent to treat nervous system and internal disorders.
Module 2 starts with the 2-day Neuro course. This course covers basic theory and basic practice of Frequency Specific Microcurrent. It then covers using Frequency Specific Microcurrent for the brain, spinal cord and peripheral nervous system including the vagus nerve. Neurodegenerative conditions will be covered as well as Concussion and Traumatic Brain Injury.

Research supporting Frequency Specific Microcurrent
The physiological actions of Frequency Specific Microcurrent
How Frequency Specific Microcurrent is applied to the body.
