Using thin needles to access pressure points throughout the body, acupuncture has been shown to release tension and relax muscles. This treatment is considered ideal for those suffering pain. The acupuncture process takes place over several stages and is completed over a number of appointments with your Vancouver physiotherapist.
Trigger Point Dry Needling
Trigger point dry needling is a treatment that involves inserting needles to stimulate underlying myofascial trigger points, as well as muscular and connective tissue to help manage movement impairments and muscle pain. The process involves inserting the needles for a shorter amount of time compared with acupuncture, as some patients may feel discomfort during the treatment as the muscle releases with the overall effect of relieving the pain.
The Gunn IMS treatment is designed to resolve issues with chronic pain. Rather than a singular treatment approach, Gunn IMS is a total system for the assessment, diagnosis and treatment of chronic pain of a neuropathic origin. Our experts are trained to recognize the root cause of pain using the Gunn IMS treatment, and can then administer needles to isolate and resolve problem areas.
