IMS stands for Intermuscular Stimulation.
Today, I had my first IMS session with my physiotherapist to try and fix an injury I picked up last year and then re-injured a few weeks ago.
I was hesitant to try IMS because, as a friend pout it, ‘It’s Icky.’
According to lifemark.ca, ‘Intramuscular stimulation (IMS) is a technique that physiotherapists use to release or lengthen muscles that are causing chronic musculoskeletal or neuropathic pain. Very fine needles (the same ones used in acupuncture) are inserted directly into the affected muscle, in order to stimulate healing. This is also often referred to, or known as, “dry needling.”
Trust me it sounds worse than it is.
The result? I’m feeling twice as better as I did this morning and can’t wait to get to my next appointment and get even better.
If you are going thru any sort of re-occurring pain that is muscle or nerve caused.
Look into IMS.
It could be a game changer for you as well.
