Acupuncture is an ancient form of Chinese medicine that is safe and effective. It involves the use of thin, sterile, stainless steel needles inserted at specific points below the skin.
At Active Sport Physiotherapy Clinic, we use acupuncture for:
- Increased circulation
- Decreased inflammation
- Relief from pain
- Relief of muscle spasm
- Tissue regeneration and healing
- General relaxation
Intramuscular Stimulation (IMS) is a dry needling technique (modern medicine acupuncture) where acupuncture needles are inserted into chronically tight and tender muscle bands. It is highly effective for many conditions at all stages of recovery.
At the Active Sport Physiotherapy Clinic, we use IMS to:
- Treat chronic pain
- Decrease myofascial pain, tension and joint stiffness
- Improve joint and overall mobility
- Improve neuromuscular function
