Gunn Intramuscular Stimulation (IMS)
Gunn IMS Surrey

Gunn IMS

Gunn Intramuscular Stimulation (IMS) is an innovative treatment for chronic pain that uses electrical stimulation to target specific nerve cells in the body. IMS treatment is typically used to treat conditions such as back pain, neck pain, and chronic pain from fibromyalgia and other chronic disorders. The electrical stimulation delivered by a Gunn IMS device targets specific nerve cells in the body, resulting in quick and effective relief from chronic pain.

What is Gunn IMS?

Gunn IMS physiotherapy is similar to other forms of electrical stimulation therapy, such as TENS (transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation) and FES (functional electrical stimulation). However, it is unique because it targets the muscles and nerves, causing pain.
IMS needling is effective in treating a variety of conditions, including:

-Chronic pain
-Nerve pain
-Muscle pain
-Arthritis pain

Gunn IMS may be a good treatment option for you if you are suffering from any of these conditions.

How does Gunn IMS work?

Gunn IMS is a type of intramuscular stimulation that uses short, sharp needles to stimulate the muscles. The needles are inserted into the muscle tissue, and a small electrical current is passed through the needles. This current causes the muscles to contract, which helps to release tension and knots. This IMS treatment can also treat acute injuries like strains and sprains.

Who can benefit from Gunn IMS?

Gunn IMS is most often used to treat chronic pain associated with conditions like fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome. It is also sometimes used to treat acute pain, such as that from an injury.

IMS is a safe, effective, and drug-free treatment that can provide long-lasting relief. There is scientific evidence to support the use of Gunn IMS for pain relief. One study found that Gunn IMS was effective in treating chronic neck pain. Another study found that Gunn IMS effectively treated chronic lower back pain. IMS may be a treatment worth considering if you are suffering from chronic pain.
