IMS (Intramuscular Stimulation)/Dry Needling

Intramuscular Stimulation (IMS) is full-body systemic approach to the diagnosis and treatment of myofascial pain. Myofascial pain is pain associated with pain in muscles or the muscle-skeletal system without a defined reason (i.e. no obvious inflammation). IMS is an evidence-based model supported with clinical research to its effectiveness to alleviate pain.

The effectiveness of IMS is based on a thorough subjective and objective assessment conducted by a physiotherapist to determine neuropathic pain and chronic pain. Neuropathic pain often follows the path of a nerve or nerve root that is entrapped. Chronic pain also has a neurological root and often can not be explained with medical images or scans.

IMS is performed with the use of single-use thin acupuncture needles to release the tension of a muscle surrounding a joint or nerve that has become shortened or distressed. By stimulating that muscle, the muscle is fatigued and is able to relax/release offering relief for the individual.

Treatment offered by Justin Kim, Sarah Leong, Greg Cugnet, and Shirley Estey.
