Adelaide West Physiotherapy is proud to offer specialized Dry Needling and Gunn Intramuscular Stimulation (IMS) therapies in the heart of Downtown Toronto. Our experienced team of CAMPT-certified physiotherapists combines these advanced techniques with other physical therapy services to provide effective solutions for musculoskeletal and neuropathic pain and discomfort.
Dry Needling is an innovative physiotherapy technique focused on alleviating pain and muscle tension. Using thin needles, our physiotherapists can target specific trigger points, offering relief from muscle knots and areas of tension, soothing pain and aiding in muscle relaxation.
Gunn IMS, a specific school of Dry Needling, offers a system for diagnosing and treating persistent myofascial pain syndromes. It addresses complex issues involving muscles, joints, tendons, nerves and more, going beyond treating localized areas of pain by targeting deeper muscle layers and focusing on the underlying causes of pain.
While both involve the use of thin needles, understanding the distinction between Dry Needling and Acupuncture is crucial for our physiotherapists to choose the right therapeutic approach for you:
Dry Needling and IMS benefit from many conditions treated at AWP, from sports injuries to chronic pain. By targeting the source of pain – whether it’s tight muscles or nerve irritation – these treatments help alleviate discomfort, reduce inflammation, and improve mobility.
These therapies effectively target the underlying muscle tensions and nerve issues contributing to long-term back discomfort.
