Our Physiotherapist Alyssa Matheson offers Physiotherapy Manual treatments, as well as Shockwave Therapy and IMS.
Haven’t heard of IMS? Do you have chronic pain? Persistent tight and sore muscles? Or you’re just thinking ‘That sounds painful why should I try dry needling?
The truth is Intramuscular Stimulation (IMS) is an effective method in releasing trigger points, paired with other physiotherapy tools such as manual therapy exercise, stretching, and massage.
It is an effective technique where she will insert very fine needles into the tight bands of shortened muscles to activate a relaxation response. During this relaxation the nerves return to having an ideal level of sensitivity, enabling your body to heal.
