Intramuscular Stimulation (IMS) in Vancouver
Our Physiotherapists have advanced training in Intramuscular Stimulation (IMS). IMS involves the insertion of very fine, sterile needles into tight muscles to create reflexive muscle relaxation, stimulate blood flow for healing, and improve nerve function. In turn, this ease of muscle tension across joints helps 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 for up to 48 hours. IMS is usually recommended no more than once a week should treatment prove to be effective.
Common conditions treated include:
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Tennis elbow
- Spinal disc injuries/herniations
- Chronic whiplash
- Neuropathies/nerve injuries
- Chronic pain
- And more!
