What is “dry needling” or “IMS”?

IMS stands for Intramuscular Stimulation and the terms are often used interchangeably. It is a treatment that uses thin dry needles to stimulate or release affected muscles.

We mostly use it to release trigger points that are causing pain and movement deficiencies. It is highly effective for treating neck and low back pain, rotator cuff injuries, and sciatica.  It is very effective in treating any condition or pain related to the muscles or nerves.

Patients love it because they can feel the muscles release, followed by a significant increase in mobility and pain reduction. It is tangible and immediately effective.

At Peak Health and Performance our multidisciplinary and collaborative team believes in providing lasting results in fewer appointments. We use multiple treatment modalities that are always specific to each patient and their stage of injury. To learn more call 403-287-7325 or click here to book an appointment.
