IMS involves the insertion of a very fine, sterile needles into tight muscles to create a reflexive muscle relaxation. In turn, this can relieve muscle tension across joints to reduce pain, inflammation, and restriction. A special assessment is completed to determine if this treatment is appropriate for your condition. After treatment, it is common to be sore up to 48 hours. IMS is usually recommended no more than once a week should treatment prove to be effective.
