Anyone have any experience with IMS (Intramuscular Stimulation) based physiotherapy?
I went to see a physiotherapist in hopes that she could point me in the direction of exercises that I can do that will aid me in healing the damage I did to my knees. Or barring that give me something I can do while they heal.
I recently also had fasciotomy surgery that should enable me to start running again but I can’t until my knees heal.
She got quite upset when I mentioned the surgery. Her belief is that a bad vertebrae in my back (that is arthritic) has caused all the problems with my shins and knees. She recommended intramuscular stimulation which is a specific form of acupuncture saying that I probably suffer from shortened muscles and tendons and that this would help it.
I have to say I’m not at all the happy that she dished all the doctors who treated me for the compartment syndrome (I saw 4 of them) and I have a good skepticism with the Intramuscular Stimulation. That being said has anyone here had some success with this? Is it worth the money? Or should I go out and find a new physical therapist?
