IMS & Trigger Point Dry Needling
Intramuscular Stimulation, also known as IMS or dry needling, involves inserting thin needles into taut bands (tight, irritable muscles) to release tension. This increases metabolism to the area and accelerates tissue healing. Needling is used to address pain and when combined with other physiotherapy treatment methods, it also helps improve movement and function.
Pregnant individuals and those with compromised immune systems, cancer, and history of lymph node removal are advised against receiving this treatment.
Due to infection risk, needling cannot be performed for 6 weeks post-op.
