More Information About IMS/Dry Needling

Does IMS Hurt?

The needles are extremely fine and relatively painless when inserted into a normal muscle. In trouble areas where muscles are very tight, the muscle will ‘grasp’ the needle and any discomfort you feel is temporary.

Are There Any Side Effects?
The treatment gives your muscles a bit of a workout, so you may feel fatigued after your treatment, and your muscles may feel a little dull or achy. This is only temporary and a heat pack or warm bath is recommended.

How Many Visits Do I Need?
Everybody responds differently to dry needling, but improvements are generally seen after the first session. Some may only need a few sessions, whereas those with chronic long-standing pain will likely need more sessions.
