Whether you are an elite athlete who needs the fastest way to return to training or are suffering from debilitating chronic pain, Gunn IMS will give you real results. IMS could really be the cure you are looking for if you suffer from:

  • Long-term back and neck pain
  • Chronic tightness in your shoulder or hip
  • Facial pain and headaches
  • Tendinitis or arthritis
  • Whiplash
  • Repetitive strain injuries
  • Sports injuries

IMS has a remarkable success rate, reducing symptoms in long term chronic conditions, giving long lasting and often permanent results. Some other conditions which IMS has been shown to help with are headaches, shoulder pain, and chronic groin pain.  Niall McGregor, Owner and Physio at The Physiotherapy Place, is the only person in Scotland that uses the treatment. Often his patients have been living with pain for months, if not years, and have tried everything.

Whether you are a professional athlete nursing a chronic injury, a weekend warrior sore from overdoing it, or a mum with back pain from toting a toddler, our expert Physios are here to  get you back in the game.  

Our two Physiotherapists have both worked as team Physios at professional Football and Rugby Clubs and have many years of experience dealing with sports injuries.  We also have a massage therapist on staff that will ease those tired muscles and work out those knots. Perfect for relaxing tight, sore muscles, our expert masseuse uses a unique blend of massage strokes to calm, lengthen and soothe. 

 If you need to address a specific complaint or injury, your therapist will focus on that. If your need is for a more general full body session to help remove lactic acid buildup, the massage is directed that way.
