Dry Needling / Intramuscular Stimulation (IMS)

Port Coquitlam Dry Needling / Intramuscular Stimulation (IMS)

Intramuscular Stimulation (IMS) / Dry Needling utilizes a thin filiform needle to penetrate the skin, fascia, and muscles to address adhesions, trigger points, and connective tissue. This speeds healing and relieves pain by decreasing muscle hypertonicity, increasing joint range of motion and correcting movement dysfunction through releasing a trigger point adhesion.

Dry Needling (IMS) treatment begins with the insertion of acupuncture needles into trigger points of muscle pain. When it hits the “muscle knot”, it causes a localized twitching, releasing the knot. This stimulation triggers the endogenous hormone release of opioids, serotonin and norepinephrine. This also increases blood supply to the affected area, relaxing the muscle and signalling the body to heal.

Some of the benefits include:

1)  Reducing pain

2)  Reducing muscle spasms

3)  Improving your range of motion (ROM)

4)  Improving circulation
