What is Intramuscular Stimulation and Trigger Point Dry Needling?
Trigger Point Dry Needling and Intramuscular Stimulation (IMS) both involve inserting thin needles into tight, irritable muscles.
Trigger Point Dry Needling creates changes to muscles and connective tissue (fascia) near the needled areas. It also stimulates nerves to help releases the body’s own painkillers.
What should I expect from treatment?
The number and location of needles used will vary based on your condition and treatment goals. The needle is inserted into the muscle up to several centimetres deep. Sometimes the needled muscle will twitch.
Intramuscular stimulation and trigger point dry needling are rarely stand-alone treatments. Needling is used to address pain. When combined with other physiotherapy treatment methods, it also helps improve movement and function. Your physiotherapist will regularly check your progress to ensure needling is helping you.
How does Spinal Decompression help a Herniated Disc?
Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression slowly lengthens and decompresses the spine, creating negative pressures within the discs. This reversal of pressure creates a vacuum inside the discs that helps to reposition bulging discs and draw extruded disc material back into place, taking pressure off pinched nerves. Spinal experts believe that nutrients, oxygen, and fluids are drawn into the disc to create a revitalized environment conducive to healing.

Clinical Benefits of Theralase Cool Laser Therapy (CLT)
Theralase® laser systems produce photons that are absorbed by tissue triggering a host of biological responses designed to eliminate pain, reduce inflammation, and accelerate healing. Unlike Class 4 laser systems, Theralase® technology does not generate heat and therefore does not pose a risk of damaging or burning tissue. Theralase® laser systems are pain-free, drug-free, non-toxic, and non-invasive, with no known side effects.
Theralase® dual-wavelength low-level laser therapy systems eliminate pain at the source by rebalancing the sodium-potassium pump (i.e., the flow of sodium and potassium ions across the cell membrane), to eliminate the transmission of pain across the nerve.
Theralase® treatments often generate immediate results and routinely produce efficacy rates of over 90%. More than 4,000 clinical studies have demonstrated the efficacy of low-level laser therapy.
Photons delivered by Theralase® low-level laser therapy systems activate the Nitric Oxide (NO) pathway, significantly increasing the production of NO, a potent vasodilator. Vasodilation promotes increased blood flow to injured/damaged tissue, thereby helping to reduce inflammation and swelling.
Theralase® cool laser treatments are a safe and effective alternative to oral analgesics (including Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs (NSAIDs) and acetaminophen/Tylenol), corticosteroid injections, opiate pain medications (including OxyContin and Oxycodone that have the potential to be highly addictive, relatively toxic, and prone to overdose), and surgery. Drug-free and pain-free, Theralase® treatments minimize recovery times without any known side effects or discomfort to patients.
Theralase® cool laser therapy activates the Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP) pathway within the mitochondria of the cell. The increased production of ATP provides more cellular energy for injured or damaged cells to initiate and accelerate the tissue repair process.
Using individual patients’ physical characteristics and biometric information, Theralase® laser therapy systems can be used to customize treatment protocols, thereby optimizing therapeutic results.
