IMS therapy focuses on the muscle knots and trigger points of the body. The trigger points, in particular hyperirritable points, contract muscles and create tension. Dry Needling or IMS therapy releases these trigger points by making them more flexible.

If you have already tried other common physiotherapies, such as massage therapy, osteopathy or chiropractic treatments, and are not getting results, then the reason for your pain might be a shortening of your muscles. A shortening of muscles can create pain, straining them and distressing the joints. IMS therapy in Vancouver is the best solution for this problem.

IMS therapy in Downtown Vancouver releases the pain within shortened muscles by relaxing them. The needles used in IMS are the same that are used in traditional acupuncturetreatments. They stimulate a specific amount of healing until your muscular pain disappears completely.

 

In IMS, the needle causes a very small injury that brings blood to that area, and this causes the muscles to start a natural healing process. An electrical potential is created in the muscle by needle insertion, which causes the muscle to behave normally once again.

Before you go for a Gunn Intramuscular Stimulation, you need to get examined by a physiotherapist who is fully knowledgeable on the subject. The expert physiotherapist specifies the insertion points for IMS needles by recognizing the physical signs of neuropathic pain. Every single IMS Needle insertion point is directed into the muscles.
