IMS - Intramuscular Stimulation
IMS may be described as an advanced form of acupuncture, but in reality it is much more complicated. IMS involves the use of acupuncture needles to target the injured muscle which has been shortened due to stress. Th shortened muscle cause pain, not only in the affected muscle, but also in the surrounding tendons and joints due to the extra work load.
IMS treatment makes the muscle "seize" the needle. This process has a relaxing effect on the muscle, and as a result, the pain will subside.
The effect of IMS is gradually increasing after each treatment session. The treatment gives a certain amount of healing and eventually the condition will be fully healed, and the pain disappears. Many patients receiving IMS treatment has been pain free for over 20 years.
