    http://www.body-works.ca | Hi, this is Dana Ranahan at Body Works Sports Physiotherapy in North Vancouver and i’m here to show you a video about intramuscular stimulation or IMS and show you how it works. We did a little video demonstrating what it is and how it releases a muscle and in this video we want to show you a little bit more about it and how it works. So when we want to release a muscle, it usually is because muscle, the muscle has gotten tight and compressing a joint or causing poor movement pattern or restriction in motion. So in this case, we have a patient here, Sherry, who has some hip restriction and we know that when we bring her knee up towards her chest, that there’s some tightness happening in the thigh muscle that is restricting her mobility. So our choice of technique in this case is, to do a release point through her quad muscle and in this case, I’ve already cleaned the skin and I’ve already prepared the needle. So now, we’re going to do a release, and my instruction is usually you’ll feel a bit of a twitch or deep ache into the muscle. So I’ve put the needle into the muscle and there’s a little twitch or deep ache feeling and the needle comes out. Usually after that we would re-check the motion to see if Sherry’s hip feels a little bit better now. The muscle has released and that helps us to improve mobility in different joints in the body.

      http://www.body-works.ca | Here we are at Body Works Sports Physiotherapy with Holly as our model and Holly’s going to be demonstrating a technique where we’re going to get her doing an arm slide and an arm lift while stabilizing her spine. In our last video we talked about how to find the neutral spine in the hands and knees position and how to activate breath and core in this position so if you are unclear on this please view our previous video. In this case we’re going to walk you through the progression of doing arm movement with her core so here I’m going to get Holly thinking about breathing laterally into the rib cage; as she breathes out she’s going to think about engaging her core muscles lengthening her neck, keeping her upper back strong between her shoulder blades and the sliding one hand up towards the ceiling first towards the front of her and then up, maintaining her neck and as she breathes in coming back down to rest underneath her. Now we’re going to alternate thinking again breathing out, the left arm slides forward and then lifts up towards the ceiling maintaining stability through her neck so keep that chin tucked in and your neck long until your arm comes up and then breathing in come back down; so repeating every time you lift the arm thinking about resetting your neck position and engaging your core because otherwise you get a little bit tired through the shoulders and neck. Good breathe out, good, breathe in and come back down and maintain your neck position. In this case we would work to fatigue which might happen quite quickly meaning that the trunk stability will fatigue and when we lift the arm you’ll have a hard time maintaining a neutral spine. It’s best to stop when you’re unable to maintain neutral spine so you may find that you can’t do quite ten repetitions right at the beginning.

        http://www.body-works.ca | An alternate position to work on strengthening your core, activating your core is in hands and knees position. This is a less supportive position than one lying on your back but very important for learning to control the spine against gravity. In this position I have Holly set up with her hips over her knees and I want her shoulders over top of her hands with her elbows relatively straight and I want to try to think about a straight spine here for Holly as a starting point so helping her try to find neutral and in this position Holly tends to have a little bit of a lift around the bra strap level in the mid part of her back and you can see her chin pokes down towards the floor so my cues to Holly would be to try to soften through her mid back and think on lengthening the neck and just a little through her pony tail, yeah perfect, maintain the chin tuck so we’ve got nice alignment between the hips and shoulders and the spine in neutral. Now in this position we would cue Holly how to find her core muscles by breathing into the lateral rib cage, getting some expansion laterally towards her elbows and as she breathes out softening that bra strap local and a little lift of the belly button up towards the spine keeping your neck and upper back neutral. This is a technique that we use to work on trying to find neutral so that your brain can recognize where it is and trying to learn how to get there as well as maintain being there.

            http://body-works.ca/uncategorized/what-is-ims/ Hi, this is Dana Ranahan, I’m a physiotherapist at Body Works Sports Physiotherapy here in North Vancouver and I’m here today to show you a technique called intramuscular stimulation, otherwise known as IMS. It’s a technique where we use an acupuncture needle to help release a tight muscle in the body. So in this case, I have Nannette here with me as a patient and I’m going to be doing a little release through Nannette’s forearm muscle. So first off, we usually take an alcohol swab and clean the area and I’ve already prepared the needle to be used. Now we use the needle into the muscle to help release tension. So I put the needle into the muscle, it creates a little twitch in the muscle and then out it comes. This is a great technique that we use to help get people moving and we can use it in different parts of the body. The demonstration today was in the elbow. So for more information, check out our website http://body-works.ca and we look forward to get you moving again.

                    Headaches are a way of life for many people, but as they well know, all brain-busters are not created equal. Many times someone will mistake an extremely severe headache with a migraine. “Correct. Migraine is something very different. It’s usually a unilateral headache that has a throbbing pulse and nature usually sensitivity to light, noise, nausea and vomiting,” says neurologist Wendy Bond, who is on medical staff of Lee Memorial Health System. About 12% of the population suffers from migraines. And unlike a tension headache which is generally a band of pressure around the head, severe migraines are localized and debilitating. “You can develop neurological symptoms: numbness, tingling, weakness. A lot of people just have to lay down in a dark room for several hours.” Similar to headaches brought on by allergies, things in the environment may precipitate a migraine. Known triggers include strong smells, weather changes, and glaring lights, as well as behavioral factors like missed meals, stress, lack of sleep, alcohol or certain foods. Unlike allergies or sinus headaches, migraines are not limited to a season. “A lot of people end up developing chronic headaches and they’re every day headaches, usually 15 headaches a month,” says Dr. Bond. Doctors may prescribe daily preventive drugs along with meds to treat acute symptoms. Many people find relief with non-traditional methods including acupuncture, bio-feedback or Botox injections. All meant to relieve the pain in their brain.

                      As the interplay between genetic disposition and environment becomes more clearly understood, western science is moving towards personalized medicine. For time immemorial, Chinese scholar-physicians have recognized this dynamic and employed appropriate diagnostic and treatment strategies honoring each individual. Using “case studies” of patients, we explore how Chinese medicine physicians think about health and disease, anatomy and physiology, acupuncture and herbs. We will also talk about “convergence" medicine - the existing partnership and forthcoming synergy between eastern and western medicines - and what this means for a patient in the modern medical system. Britton Mann holds a doctorate in acupuncture and Oriental medicine and is a licensed acupuncturist in Vermont and New Hampshire. He has a spent much of his life studying the healing arts, including a seventeen year study of yoga, Japanese and Chinese martial arts, and qigong. Prior to practicing acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine, he was a massage therapist and yoga teacher in Norwich and New York City. He returned to the Upper Valley this past summer after practicing Chinese medicine in Portland, Oregon.
