Treat chronic or recurrent muscle pain with Intramuscular stimulation (IMS) or dry needling

The only thing worse than experiencing chronic or recurrent muscle pain is not knowing how to treat it.

Many people suffer from chronic musculoskeletal or neuropathic pain caused by nerve irritation or nerve dysfunction. When nerves malfunction, the muscles connected to them can become weak, tight and shortened—translation: painful. It feels like your muscles never relax.

The pain and stiffness that is experienced with chronic or recurrent muscle pain conditions may be eased by intramuscular stimulation or IMS.

What Is Intramuscular Stimulation?

Intramuscular stimulation (IMS) is a technique that physiotherapists, who have completed IMS certification, use to release or lengthen muscles that may be causing chronic musculoskeletal or neuropathic pain. Very fine needles (the same ones used in acupuncture) are inserted directly into the affected muscle to stimulate healing. This is also often referred to or known as “dry needling.”
