Intramuscular Stimulation (IMS) is a dry needling technique that helps reduce pain caused by supersensitive muscles, which are often found in the presence of chronic musculoskeletal pain.

When nerves that supply muscles are compromised through injury or repetitive trauma, the muscles (and other soft tissue they supply) become supersensitive. This leads to muscle shortening or “trigger points” that contribute to pain and dysfunction.

By using acupuncture needles to release shortened muscles, IMS can relieve pain from the muscles and their associated joints and soft tissue.

A thorough assessment by one of our physiotherapists can help determine if this is an appropriate treatment for you.

More information on IMS is available on the website: www.istop.org
