Dry Needling and IMS Kelowna
In Kelowna, Valeo Health Clinic offers specialized services such as Dry Needling and IMS. Our skilled physiotherapists utilize dry needling physio techniques, employing fine and flexible sterile needles to address muscle tension and stimulate healing in the fascial tissue, nerves, and joints.
The process involves inserting needles through the skin into the underlying tissues and muscles, targeting specific points known as myofascial trigger points. This approach triggers a twitch response, releasing tension and promoting muscle relaxation. Experience the benefits of Dry Needling and IMS in Kelowna with our dedicated team at Valeo Health Clinic.

What does a Pelvic Floor Assessment and Treatment involve?
Pelvic floor dysfunction is diagnosed by using internal and external “hands-on” or manual techniques to evaluate the function of the pelvic floor muscles’ ability to contract and relax. If you’re seeking pelvic floor physiotherapy, our clinic offers comprehensive assessments and treatments. The therapist will also assess your lower back, hips, and sacroiliac joints to determine if any other structures are contributing to your pelvic floor dysfunction.
Treatment depends on your particular condition but can include techniques to relax hypertonic muscles, strengthening exercises if there is weakness, manual therapy, biofeedback, and general physiotherapy management if other issues are contributing to your pelvic floor dysfunction. You will also ALWAYS learn self-management techniques and education on how to manage, improve, and eliminate your issues.
It is important to realize that pelvic floor pain and dysfunction is not normal, and it can be addressed!
