In Intramuscular Stimulation (IMS), small, thin needles, similar to acupuncture needles, are inserted into tense or painful muscles. When inserted into a specific trigger point on the muscle, the needle causes the muscle to flex and contract, releasing the tension within the muscle and relieving any pain associated with the tension.
Physiotherapy is a medical practice where a trained physiotherapist uses a variety of movement techniques and tools in order to assess, diagnose, and treat any number of musculoskeletal and movement conditions. Physiotherapy is often recommended for patients to recover from injuries, surgery, or other chronic conditions.
Massage therapy involves a trained massage therapist using their fingers, hands, elbows, as well as special massage therapy tools to work the tension out of the muscle. These techniques are intended to improve blood circulation, release muscle knots or trigger points, enhance flexibility, and induce a sense of relaxation and stress reduction.
During physiotherapy, pain can vary depending on several factors, including the individual's condition, treatment techniques used, and personal pain tolerance. While some physiotherapy techniques or exercises may cause temporary discomfort or mild soreness, it is important to note that physiotherapy is generally aimed at reducing pain and improving overall function.
It is essential to communicate openly with your physiotherapist about your pain levels and any concerns you may have. They can modify techniques, adjust treatment plans, or provide additional support to manage discomfort during your sessions.
Yes, physiotherapy can be highly beneficial in the management and rehabilitation of sports injuries. Sports injuries can vary widely in their nature and severity, ranging from sprains and strains to more complex conditions like ligament tears or fractures. Physiotherapists with expertise in sports injury management play a crucial role in the recovery process of athletes and individuals involved in sports.
Physiotherapists design individualized treatment plans, including stretching, strengthening exercises, balance training, and functional exercises tailored to the specific needs of the sports injury. Rehabilitation aims to restore mobility, flexibility, strength, and overall function.
