Intramuscular Stimulation / Dry Needling

What is Gunn IMS ?

People who suffer from chronic pain become frustrated and depressed when their doctors cannot help. Some try medications, therapies, even surgery, and do not find lasting relief. It is now understood that chronic pain can occur, even when there is no injury or inflammation. Gunn IMS is a scientifically proven method for diagnosing and treating a variety of chronic pain conditions.


Intramuscular Stimulation (IMS) is an effective treatment for chronic pain of neuropathic origin. IMS was developed by Dr. Chan Gunn while he was a clinic physician at the Worker’s Compensation Board of British Colombia in the 70’s. He is presently President of ISTOP and clinical professor at the University of Washington’s Multi Disciplinary Pain Center in Seattle.
