Does It Hurt?
As an alternative therapy, our IMS in NE Calgary has countless benefits. However, many are daunted by the idea that it hurts. IMS aims to encourage muscle relaxation. To do so, we insert tiny needles into your muscles. This process does cause some discomfort before the muscles relax, but no severe pain. The duration of the treatment is minimal, with the needles only being inserted and causing discomfort for a little while. Most clients experience muscle relaxation immediately after the treatment or in a few days.
What Are the Side Effects of IMS Treatment?
As opposed to invasive clinical treatments, IMS therapy has minimal side effects. The only significant side effect is that clients might have soreness in the area that was treated. Usually, this soreness goes away in 24 hours, with a marked improvement in mobility.
While IMS treatment is suitable for chronic musculoskeletal pain, it does not work for clients with chronic inflammatory pain.
