What is Gunn IMS?

Gunn IMS is a physiotherapy technique that differentiates itself from other electrical stimulation therapies such as TENS (Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation) and FES (Functional Electrical Stimulation). It uniquely addresses both the muscular and neural aspects of pain, particularly for conditions manifesting as:

  • Persistent pain
  • Nerve-related discomfort
  • Muscular aches
  • Pain from arthritis
  • Migraines and headaches

If you’re navigating through any of these conditions in Vancouver, Gunn IMS at Revitalize Physiotherapy and Sports Clinic could be your pathway to relief.

Understanding the Gunn IMS Process

Gunn IMS utilizes fine needles, similar to those used in acupuncture, introducing them into the muscles where they directly stimulate nerve endings and muscle fibers. This stimulation, aided by a mild electrical current, induces muscle contractions, aiding in the release of tension and the untangling of muscle knots. This technique is not only beneficial for chronic pain relief but also shows efficacy in addressing acute injuries, sprains, and strains.

Who Can Benefit from Gunn IMS?

Gunn IMS is primarily sought after for its effectiveness in mitigating chronic pain associated with conditions such as fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome. Nonetheless, its application also extends to acute pain management, providing a holistic, drug-free, and scientifically backed treatment alternative.

Research underpins the efficacy of Gunn IMS, with studies illustrating its capacity to alleviate chronic neck and lower back pain. If you’re grappling with persistent pain, our qualified practitioners at Revitalize Physiotherapy and Sports Clinic are at your disposal to discuss whether Gunn IMS is the optimal treatment for you. Reach out to us today to schedule a consultation.

At Revitalize Physiotherapy and Sports Clinic in Vancouver, we are dedicated to pioneering pain management and enhancing your quality of life through Gunn IMS. Contact us today to embark on your journey to pain relief and revitalization.
