Lakeside Physiotherapy & Sports Injuries Clinic helps clients of all ages recover from injury and prevent re-injury.
When conventional physiotherapy techniques have not been successful, intramuscular stimulation (IMS) is an alternative option.
What is IMS?
IMS is a needling technique used to treat chronic pain that is found to be of neuropathic origin and that has not responded to conventional physiotherapy techniques.
IMS is a term some people confuse with acupuncture.
What is the difference between IMS and acupuncture? Both methods of treatment incorporate different origins when using needling techniques.
IMS is based on Western medicine which treats the source of the pain, whereas acupuncture is based on Chinese medicine in which needles are inserted into acupuncture points along body system meridians to treat a variety of conditions.
"In my 35 years as a physiotherapist practicing in the rehabilitation industry, I have witnessed the strong benefits of IMS in treating clients who suffer from chronic back and neck pain. IMS is a powerful and effective technique implemented in physiotherapy treatment," states Petra Lehmann, owner of Lakeside Physiotherapy & Sports Injuries Clinic in Nelson, British Columbia.
