Gunn Intramuscular Stimulation (IMS)
Intramuscular Stimulation (IMS) is a diagnostic and treatment system used to manage chronic musculoskeletal pain conditions that present without obvious signs of injury or inflammation. The treatment utilizes acupuncture needles to specifically target shortened muscle tissue, releasing taut, tender muscle bands which are pressing on and irritating nerves. IMS, in effect, treats the underlying neuropathic condition that causes the pain.
