Intramuscular stimulation (IMS) use a fine, flexible needle to treat peripheral nerve dysfunction, which causes pain and altered function. This nerve dysfunction results in tender and shortened muscle bands. These are detected by performing a full musculoskeletal examination, and treatment will involve both spinal and limb muscles. The technique is based on the work of Dr. Chan Gunn. president of the Institute for the Study and Treatment of Pain (ISTOP) Vancouver, BC. www.ubcgunnims.com
