From athletes to people with chronic pain, dry needling (also known as intramuscular stimulation) provides instant relief to pain by relieving tension and pain in muscular trigger points while producing mood-stimulating endorphins. With Strive Physiotherapy’s dry needling in Calgary, we can locate and needle specific trigger points, promoting movement and blood flow, so you get back to being pain-free.
It doesn’t matter where you are, you’ll always get quality care from us. Learn more about our Virtual Care service.
Administering dry needling correctly requires educational experience, firsthand knowledge of the body, and a specialized targeted plan. You’ll get all that with Strive. We take great pride in offering the most innovative treatments, such as intramuscular stimulation (IMS), to provide you with instant relief, aid injury recovery and encourage exercise. Visit Strive to get IMS treatment in Calgary today!
Although unpleasant, dry needling is not painful. You might feel discomfort when the needle is inserted, but as the needle is only inserted for a few seconds, it does not last long. It does vary from person to person, and we’re here to support you if needed.
You may experience mild soreness and potential bruising in the treated area. However, that should go away within 24 hours, leaving you with less pain and tension, more movement and a greater range of motion.
It ultimately depends on the severity of your condition, how long you’ve had it for and your body’s self-healing rate. Some people require one to two treatments, while others might need several. You’ll know how many treatments you need with your individualized plan.
