Intramuscular stimulation/dry needling

If you suffer from musculoskeletal problems such as Achilles tendonitis, plantar fasciitis, arthritis, chronic tendonitis, bursitis, shin splints, sciatica/piriformis syndrome, recurrent sports injuries, spinal disc problems, low back pain, tennis/golfers elbow and many other problems, you may be a candidate for Intramuscular Stimulation (IMS) / Dry Needling (DN).  Neuropathic pain can result from these conditions when muscles become very sensitive and shorten.  The pain can become chronic and have a negative effect on a person’s quality of life.

Although acupuncture needles are used with IMS/DN, the treatment is not acupuncture.  When the needles are inserted into the muscle, it relaxes the muscles and relieves pain.  Healing occurs when the process aids the body to increase circulation to the area.  Muscles can sometimes be deep enough that other types of treatment are not as effective as IMS/DN.

In addition to my chiropractic training at Parker College of Chiropractic in Dallas, Texas, I also became certified in Meridian Therapy in December of 1990.  I would like to extend the offer of a free consultation to anyone suffering from the above-mentioned conditions to determine if you are a candidate for IMS/DN.  My office is located at 1025 South College Street in Winchester, Tn., and we can be reached at 931-967-4232.  Shull Chiropractic Clinic, PLLC is a wellness, nutritional, spinal decompression clinic.
