Automated Intramuscular Stimulation (A-IMS)


Automated Intramuscular Stimulation, or A-IMS, is an effective way of treating acute and chronic,

musculoskeletal-related pain conditions without prescribing medications. A-IMS, an FDA-approved

procedure, is extremely effective at offering fast and long-lasting relief from pain conditions caused

when the head, neck, back or an extremity is over-extended, over-flexed and/or rotated due to a sports

activity, car accident or a simple slip and fall incident. A-IMS is capable of returning the patient to a fully

active lifestyle in a considerably brief amount of time.

The fundamental idea behind A-IMS is that an EMG needle is inserted into the muscle and then moved

in a gentle piston-like motion until a ‘local twitch response’ (LTR) is obtained. Of course, the twitch

response is a sudden contraction of the muscle followed by its immediate relaxation. It is this LTR that

relaxes the muscle and relieves pain. After developing a small, easily manageable device capable of

automating the process, much more frequent and significantly stronger LTRs have been obtained which

are the key to much faster pain relief.

Licensed health professionals ideal for learning the A-IMS procedure include, but are not limited to, Pain

Management specialists, Sports Medicine specialists, Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation or

Physiatrists, Orthopedic specialists, Doctors of Osteopathic Medicine, Anesthesiologists, Physical

Therapists, Chiropractors, Acupuncturists, etc.
