Many physiotherapy procedures can help to ease pain in the muscle, joints, and nerves. One of these techniques is IMS. IMS or intramuscular stimulation refers to a procedure that physiotherapists often adopt to relieve the knots in the muscles that are leading to neuropathic or musculoskeletal pain. Sterile, one-time-use monofilament needles are popped into the distressed muscle in a way that kindles healing. This process is also often referred to as ", dry needling". The fine needles used are for single-use, so after the dry needling procedure, the needles are usually disposed into a certified container.
The word “chiropractic” is derived from the Greek words “cheir” meaning “hands” and “praxis” (practice). So it mostly deals with “hands-on” therapy. Chiropractic treatment is mainly used as a pain relief substitute for the nervous, muscular and skeletal system; and for connective tissue such as cartilage, ligaments, and tendons.
