IMS Therapist Burnaby, BC
IMS or Intramuscular Stimulation is a dry needling technique used to treat underlying neuromusculoskeletal injuries that have become chronic or long lasting without any or minimal improvement from other treatments or medications. IMS practitioners have an in depth knowledge of the anatomy, muscle, and nervous system of the human body. This allows an astute IMS practitioner to properly assess, examine, diagnose and treat the underling condition with IMS. This technique has evidence-based research to support its application in the treatment of chronic pain. The insertion of the dry needle into a muscle has the potential to change the property of the muscle, nerve, and blood flow which can alter pain.
