Your physiotherapist may also work with the other practitioners at CAP Health including Massage Therapy, Chiropractic or Naturopathic doctors as part of their integrated treatment plan. Working as a team allows us to deliver the best care possible!

IMS / DRY NEEDLING

IMS or dry needling is a technique where a sterile needle is inserted into a muscle trigger point. Trigger points are not acupuncture points but areas of increased muscle spasm and tension. Inserting the needle causes a stretch reflex reaction and allows the muscle to relax. IMS is typically used to treat chronic pain and inflammation that is caused by neuropathy or muscle tightness.

IMS is effective for conditions such as:

  • Tennis/Golfer’s Elbow
  • Shoulder pain
  • Hip and IT band pain
  • Achilles Tendonitis
  • Plantar Fasciitis
  • Sciatica
  • Chronic muscle
  • Tightness
  • Myofascial Pain Syndrome
  • Chronic Pain

Dry Needling / IMS can be done alone or in conjunction with other manual therapies such as Chiropractic manual therapy or physiotherapy treatment such as corrective exercises and stretches.
