Dry Needling, also known as IMS (Intra-Muscular Stimulation) could be the solution you've been looking for!
In simple terms, the treatment involves placing a needle into a muscle's trigger points, which causes them to relax, which allows for increased mobility and often times an immediate and significant reduction in pain.
Although they use the same needles, dry needling (IMS) aims for trigger points in the knotted muscles whereas acupuncture
aims for specific points based on the meridian system. Dry needling is used for orthopedic complaints (muscle aches and pains) whereas acupuncture is used to treat a wide variety of conditions ranging from pain to high blood pressure, digestive problems, anxiety, flu, infertility, etc.
