Like any medical treatment, IMS has potential side effects and risks. However, IMS is generally considered safe when performed by a qualified healthcare practitioner. Common side effects of IMS may include mild soreness or bruising at the needle insertion sites, temporary muscle weakness or fatigue, and minor bleeding or infection at the needle insertion site.
Patients with certain medical conditions, such as bleeding disorders, infections, or allergies to certain metals, may not be suitable candidates for IMS. It’s important to discuss any pre-existing medical conditions or concerns with your healthcare practitioner before beginning IMS treatment.
Overall, IMS is generally considered a safe and effective treatment option for many people with chronic pain and muscle tension. However, it’s important to work with a qualified healthcare practitioner who has experience in performing IMS and to follow all post-treatment instructions to minimize the risk of complications.
