Intramuscular Stimulation (IMS) at Total Health
Intramuscular Stimulation (IMS) or Intramuscular Therapy (IMT) are relative new treatments that are designed to stimulated muscles using tiny needles and relieve pain.
What is IMS?
IMS is not acupuncture. IMS is something called dry needling or myofascial trigger point needling in which tiny needles are inserted into the muscle for shorter or longer periods of time.
There are several different methods for practicing IMS, and your practitioner decides which protocol is most suitable for you based on your individual case.
The theory behind IMS is that causing tiny muscles to contract and release can relieve pain and treat areas with muscle spasms or specific trigger points.
