You should tell your IMS practitioner if you are on Coumadin or any other prescription blood thinner. In addition, if you are pregnant we recommend that you get clearance from your OB/GYN. Finally, if you have a blood clotting disorder, HIV, or Hepatitis, please alert your practitioner.
How successful is IMS? Our experience has shown that this technique is one of the most effective for the treatment of chronic pain. Even in severe cases, approximately 80-90% of patients get significant benefit.
