Functional Dry Needling
(ALSO KNOWN AS INTRAMUSCULAR STIMULATION (I.M.S))
Physiotherapists use dry needling (I.M.S) as a modality to treat a wide variety of conditions. IMS, in conjunction with physiotherapy can help restore muscle and function, relieving pain quickly.
Thin filiform needles are used to penetrate the skin to release or inactivate trigger points to relieve pain and help improve range of motion. The needle allows the physiotherapist to target tissues that are not manually palpable.
Acupuncture is a health technique that has roots in Traditional Chinese Medicine and has been supported by Western research.
By stimulating specific points in the body using fine needles, this can help improve healing and reduce swelling.
