Common techniques include:
-soft tissue mobilization (massage)
-passive range of motion
Gunn Intramuscular Stimulation (IMS)
Gunn IMS is a total system for the diagnosis and treatment of persistent myofascial pain syndromes, including muscle, joint, tendon, bursal, neural and biomechanical problems. The approach, using intramuscular dry needling, is based on a neuropathic model of musculoskeletal dysfunction developed by Dr. Chan Gunn.
Anatomical acupuncture is a modern approach taken today by Acupuncture Canada. When combined with knowledge of anatomy, physiology and pathophysiology, physiotherapists can use acupuncture effectively to treat a variety of disorders. Some examples include:
