Intra Muscular Stimulation
A Western scientific approach using ‘deep needle accupuncture’
This is a potent way of de-activating trigger points in shortened, tense muscles responsible for myofascialpain. It involves the insertion of acupuncture needles into the tight bands and knots of muscle, releasingenergy and reducing the local spasm.
It is a little painful during the procedure but well worth the benefit in cases such as tennis elbow, gluteusmedius syndrome, and paraspinal muscle spasm.
It is followed by postural adaptation, stretching exercises and muscle balancing.
