The pelvic floor is made up of a layer of muscles covering the bottom of the pelvis that support the bladder, bowel, and reproductive organs of men and women. These are known as pelvic organs. The pelvic floor is a structure of muscles that run like a hammock from the front of the pelvis to the tailbone. The pelvic floor muscles have the ability to move up and down and gain strength through exercise.
There are three grades of ankle sprains. Grade 1 ankle sprains are light injuries that usually allow the return to sport in 2-3 weeks. Grade 2 sprains involve greater injury to the ligament and can take up to 4-6 weeks to allow a full return to sport. Grade 3 sprains are more severe and often involve full tearing of the ligament and possible bone fracture.
To prepare for your first IMS session, it’s important to wear comfortable, loose-fitting clothing that allows your practitioner to access the treatment areas more easily. Drinking plenty of water before the session can help minimize discomfort and flush out toxins from your body. Avoiding caffeine and alcohol can also help ensure a better response to treatment. Be prepared to discuss your medical history and current medications, as well as any specific symptoms you’re experiencing. It’s important to be open and honest with your practitioner about any concerns or discomfort you experience during the session. Arriving a few minutes early to fill out any necessary paperwork can also help ensure a smooth and efficient session.

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.
