IMS treatment can be appropriate for people of all ages, although the specific treatment plan may vary depending on the individual’s age and overall health status. IMS is often used to treat chronic pain and muscle tension in adults, but it can also be used to treat children and adolescents who are experiencing pain or tension related to musculoskeletal conditions.
When treating children and adolescents with IMS, the treatment plan may be modified to accommodate their unique needs and physical development. For example, needles may be inserted more shallowly or fewer needles may be used to minimize discomfort.
Overall, the safety and effectiveness of IMS treatment for children and adolescents will depend on the individual’s condition, age, and overall health status. It’s important to work with a qualified healthcare practitioner who has experience in treating children and adolescents with IMS, and to discuss any concerns or questions you may have about the treatment plan.
If you are experiencing new and severe back pain you should book an assessment with a qualified health care professional to help determine most appropriate course of action.
It’s helpful to bring relevant medical records, including any reports or imaging related to your condition. Additionally, bring comfortable clothing
It’s generally recommended to avoid intense exercise and activities that may exacerbate your symptoms for at least 24-48 hours after an IMS treatment session. This allows your body to rest and recover and gives the IMS therapy time to take effect. However, this doesn’t necessarily mean that you need to stop all physical activity.
Your healthcare practitioner may recommend specific exercises or activities that are safe and appropriate for your condition and treatment plan. These may include low-impact exercises, stretching, or other therapeutic activities that can help promote healing and prevent muscle stiffness or tightness.
It’s important to communicate with your healthcare practitioner about your exercise routine and any changes you plan to make while receiving IMS treatment. They can provide guidance on how to safely incorporate exercise and physical activity into your treatment plan and help you achieve the best possible outcomes.
The length of an IMS session can vary depending on the individual needs of the patient and the area being treated. Typically, an IMS session can last between 15 and 30 minutes, although some sessions may be longer or shorter depending on the specific treatment plan. During the session, the practitioner will insert needles into the targeted trigger points within the muscle tissue, and the needles will be left in place for several minutes. After the needles are removed, the patient may be advised to rest for a short period before resuming normal activities. The number of sessions required can also vary depending on the severity and chronicity of the condition being treated. Your practitioner will work with you to develop a personalized treatment plan based on your individual needs and goals.
