FMS is, as anyone who has it can vouch for, a complex and often unpredictable nerve and muscle problem. There are numerous theories of why it happens but the latest seems to be it is caused by a hypersensitivity of the nerves which is turn creates pain and muscle spasms. Please see “Advanced Techniques” for a thorough explanation and treatment plan including what other products are helpful that we provide as “accessories”. Both MedMassagers can be helpful for reducing the pain and muscle spasm of FMS but for this condition, the FMS sufferer must play an active role in determining what feels best for them. That is, what speed and pressure on the body. This can vary day to day with the same individual. We have seen excellent results with pain manifesting in the middle of the thighs, around the shoulder blade, up on the top of the shoulder between the neck and shoulder joint, along the spine at any level, behind the leg on the hamstring muscles and the lower leg calf and on the lateral part of the shin. These are only some of the areas that are very commonly treated, however, FMS can be painful at any body area.
