Dry Needling or Intramuscular Stimulation(IMS) is a powerful new treatment that Dr. Janzen has become certified in. This treatment involves inserting thin filament needles into muscles to relieve tension and tightness.
One of the aspects of this technique that make it so successful is that during the technique we try to cause the muscle to quickly twitch or contract. This quick muscle contraction acts to reset the muscle to a normal resting length and tone.
It is a great treatment for sports injuries or chronic pain and can be used in alone or in conjunction with your Chiropractic Treatment.
