Intramuscular Stimulation (IMS) Treatment
IMS or Dry Needling is an effective treatment for acute and chronic pain of neuropathic origin. Also known as myofascial trigger point, is an alternative medicine technique similar to acupuncture. Dry needling is sometimes also known as intramuscular stimulation. Myofascial trigger points causing pain and dysfunction are commonly treated by injection or dry needling. The main purpose is to improve tissue healing and restore muscle function.
Limelight Wellness Clinic goes beyond and offers IMS in conjunction with Ultrasound image to be even more accurate in trigger point detection and treatment.

Frequently Asked Questions about IMS (Dry Needling)
What Can I Expect from the IMS Treatment?
The location and number of needles will vary based on your condition and objectives of the treatment.
The physiotherapist can also use other methods of physiotherapy to improve the outcome of your condition. The IMS can be used to reduce the pain and discomfort while other treatment methods can improve function and movement.
Is Trigger Point Dry Needling same as Acupuncture?
While the process may look similar on the surface, there are big differences between IMS treatments and acupuncture. In a typical IMS treatment, a singular needle is very briefly used to trigger specifically targeted points of the muscle which provide relief from pain, whereas acupuncture is a slower process. Acupuncture is based around the usage of multiple needles which are not inserted into muscle tissue.
Is Dry Needling Good For Me?
The dry needling procedure especially helps people with the following conditions:
- Myofascial Pain Syndrome (MPS)
- Pre or post surgical pain and symptoms
