What exactly is intramuscular Stimulation?
Intramuscular Stimulation is a treatment that includes using a specific needle to stimulate stiff muscles that can cause back or neck pain or any discomfort. These needles can be used to treat soft tissue damages. However, while intramuscular Stimulation is comparable to acupuncture, its processes and administration are entirely different.
Our physiotherapist will insert a needle into your skin during an intramuscular stimulation treatment. Patients rarely feel the impact of the needle if their muscles are in good condition. However, suppose their muscle is malfunctioning, hypersensitive, and shortened. In that case, they will experience a sharp feeling similar to a dull ache, muscle cramp, or Charlie horse because the needle causes the abnormal muscle to experience a quick, acute pain before recognizing it. The muscle relaxes after the feeling has gone away.
What are the advantages of Intramuscular Stimulation?
Several circumstances can cause pain in the body. Most of these aches and disorders that induce nerve irritation can be cured with intramuscular Stimulation (IMS).
Ailments, such as backaches, headaches, frozen shoulder, persistent muscular discomfort, tennis elbow, and other musculoskeletal problems, may not show inflammation or tissue damage; as a result, it is difficult to manage this ailment using traditional means.
This type of pain is known as neuropathic pain. It generally happens when the nerve is irritated or injured. In most cases, it also causes the nerves and nerve endings to become very sensitive to potentially painful messages. Such disorders are referred to be supersensitive in medical organizations. Surprisingly, when medical tests are conducted on the afflicted part, the result can show no issue, yet you may still experience pain.
Many patients choose pain relievers or anti-inflammatory medicines to assist them in coping with their pains. But did you know that they are only helpful in the short term?. Pressed and irritated necks that produce muscle shortening and pains can be pulled and desensitized utilizing intramuscular stimulation procedures. We offer the comfort a patient requires.
