Every time you feel chronic pain in your body, what is the first thing that comes to your mind? Most of us pop a painkiller and hope that we would feel better.
But, a painkiller is not the right solution for acute pain in the neck, shoulders, back, hands and other parts of the body. If you’re suffering from persistent pain and are unable to go with your normal routine, you may want to look into Automated Intramuscular Stimulation.
Developed by Dr. Anna Lee, MD – a board certified physician in physical medicine and rehabilitation – Automated Intramuscular Stimulation (A-IMS®) is an effective, reliable procedure for treating a range of myofascial pain syndromes. Dr. Anna Lee has more than 15 years of experience in using Automated Intramuscular Stimulation.
Here are some important things you need to know about A-IMS® procedure:
The A-IMS® procedure is an FDA-approved medical procedure that can treat numbness or pain in various body areas. These parts include but are not limited to neck, head, shoulders, arms, wrists, hands, fingers, jaws, back, hips, knees, thighs, legs and more. From migraines and tension headaches to fibromyalgia, the A-IMS® procedure helps uncover the root cause of several conditions and addresses it.
Is It Safe?
The A-IMS® procedure has been approved by the FDA and cleared for marketing to treat chronic pain. The medical procedure involves using needles. But, the needles used are thin, flexible, sterile, Teflon-coated that have round edges. Therefore, they do not cause injuries or bruises.
What Does The Treatment Involve?
Patients are pre-medicated before the treatment. Needles are inserted into a patient’s tight muscle bands in order to break the pain cycle and promote muscle relaxation.
After the treatment, patients receive hot packs or aqua physiotherapy to alleviate post-treatment soreness.
Unlike other pain-relief procedures, A-IMS ® treats the issue as a whole as it neutralizes the active muscle trigger points that cause pain. The procedure is designed to offer patients lasting pain-relief, without surgery, injections or opioids.
