IMS, or intramuscular stimulation, is another effective treatment for all types of pain and injuries. IMS takes thin needles, the same as those used in acupuncture, and inserts them into the muscles that are causing the pain and dysfunction. This dry needling technique calms the nerves that supply those muscles groups and in turn, the muscles relax and are not as irritable or sensitive. This ultimately relieves your pain.
IMS is an incredibly effective treatment used to relieve all sorts of issues including chronic pain, which may be difficult to diagnose. Our patients may have had x-rays, CT scans, or other tests performed with no sign of a problem. They often find that our IMS treatment is the only thing that provides pain relief.
Those patients who suffer from arthritis, headaches, back pain, whiplash, neck pain, shoulder pain, tendonitis, bursitis, plantar fasciitis, TMJ or tennis elbow can greatly benefit from intramuscular stimulation.
