Acupuncture Edmonton, Dry Needling & IMS Edmonton

How Acupuncture Edmonton can help you

Acupuncture Edmonton

The practice of acupuncture has its origin in Traditional Chinese Medicine which aims to stimulate and balance the flow of energy or qi in the body to restore health and wellness. Western approaches to acupuncture apply these traditional theories to a medical model for certain conditions. Our therapists are trained in both Western and traditional acupuncture techniques which help to reduce pain, increase energy, improve mood, and improve the function of the body.

Trigger Point Dry Needling

Muscular dysfunction is one of the most overlooked causes of acute and chronic pain.  Hypersensitive regions in tight and injured muscles known as trigger points can be both the primary cause of an issue or can occur secondary to other conditions such as osteoarthritis or whiplash. Trigger point needling has become an essential tool in the treatment of muscle dysfunction and the management of many painful conditions.  This technique uses an acupuncture needle to cause an immediate release and relaxation of a muscle leading to reduced pain, reduced stiffness, and increased function.

Intramuscular Stimulation (IMS)

The health and function of our nerves and nervous system is an often ignored component in the management of chronic pain conditions.  IMS is an assessment and treatment method that focuses on desensitizing neuropathic pain, which is often an underlying cause of long-standing pain disorders. Particular muscles are gently stimulated with an acupuncture needle, creating a relaxation effect that helps to restore the function of the related nerve leading to decreased pain and sensitivity.

All needling approaches are most effective when applied as part of a comprehensive treatment plan that is developed by your physiotherapist.  Ask us about how acupuncture, dry needling, or intramuscular stimulation could help you!
