The insertion of non-traumatic small filaments into the tissues aimed at balancing the bodies systems to reduce pain and inflammation, and as a means of stimulating the body’s own healing chemicals in order to aid recovery and enhance rehabilitation.
Intramuscular Stimulation (IMS)
An assessment and treatment technique using acupuncture needles to release or lengthen taut dysfunctional muscle bands that are causing chronic musculoskeletal or neuropathic pain.

Any external device used to promote healing.
The application of high frequency sound waves to the tissue to stimulate increased blood flow. Therapeutic ultrasound can be used to increase tissue pliability, reduce local swelling, chronic inflammation, reduce pain, stimulate collagen synthesis, and increase local circulation to accelerate the healing of musculoskeletal tissues after injury.
Interferential Current (IFC)
An electrotherapeutic treatment where small amounts of electrical current are sent through the skin to stimulate the tissues around an injury to reduce pain, stimulate muscles, reduce swelling and inflammation, increase blood flow and promote healing.
Electrical stimulation across the skin to an injured or painful area of the body which primarily aims to reduce pain by stimulating the sensory nerves.
Application of direct heat to the tissue used to aid in the relaxation of tight muscles, to increase pliability of tissues, to increased blood flow and to reduce pain.
Used to reduce pain by slowing the nerve conduction of the pain message, limit the extent of the inflammatory reaction of acute injuries by temporarily reducing blood flow to superficial blood vessels.
