Intramuscular stimulation (IMS) is a technique that physiotherapists, who have completed IMS certification, use to release or lengthen muscles that are causing chronic musculoskeletal or neuropathic pain. Very fine needles are inserted directly into the affected muscle, in order to stimulate healing. This is also often referred to, or known as, “dry needling.”

Common Types of Pain and Conditions Treated With IMS Include:

  • Headaches
  • Back pain
  • Whiplash
  • Tennis elbow
  • Frozen shoulder
  • Chronic aching or burning pain
  • Limited range of motion
  • Stiffness in muscles and joints
