The treatment and care that I have received at Sutherland House have changed my life. My wonderful physio has treated me for many years for generalised joint hypermobility, adolescent idiopathic scoliosis and, more recently, very serious nerve pain in both my arms and hands. Together with my physio’s hands-on therapy, guidance and care, Frequency Specific Microcurrent (FSM) treatment has been absolutely pivotal in enabling me to continue with my university studies.
FSM treatment successfully mitigated the acute arm, hand and neck pain in 2022 that resulted from nerve root compression by osteophytes that had developed on a number of vertebrae in my neck. I was just 20 years old, disabled by the pain and could not hold a pen. Misalignment of the cervical vertebrae (thanks to the hypermobility) and stress were clear contributory factors to the development of the osteophytes, and my physio developed a specific FSM programme to realign the cervical spine and reduce neck pain. The difference was immediate. I was also able to continue with FSM treatment at university and at home, and was regularly running this specific programme, plus other programs to reduce my stress levels, manage anxiety, improve sleep, reduce inflammation and to deal with back pain generally.
I continue to have fairly regular reviews with my physio, hands-on therapy and FSM treatment at Sutherland House. At other times, I use an FSM iCare pad and app to continue with FSM treatment at home, at university or while travelling. My physio prescribes and manages the FSM programmes that are uploaded to my iCare account on the app, and I use them under her guidance.
FSM is an amazing technology and my physio is an expert at using it to promote healing. I am so thankful that I have both the support of the very caring practitioners at Sutherland House and the ground-breaking FSM medical technology to help me manage this potentially disabling condition on an ongoing basis. Thank you Eva and the team at Sutherland House!
