IMS treatment involves the insertion of monofilament needles into the injured area to release muscle tension. Our dry needling therapy in Abbotsford takes care of conditions like headaches, arthritis, lower back pain, rotator cuff injuries, etc.


What is dry-needling IMS?

IMS is similar to acupuncture. The professional uses a very thin filament needle to insert into the affected areas in your body. These needles target a compressed nerve root and create a harmless therapeutic injury. The surrounding muscles as a result grab onto the needle. The procedure stimulates healing, relaxes the muscles and helps the nerves function optimally. The tiny harmless injury created by the needle sends signals to the brain to start the healing process. It helps the muscles restore until the entire area is completely healed and free of pain.

It’s fine if you are still confused about it.
At Legend Physiotherapy Clinic, we guide you through the treatment and how it can benefit you. Let us know about your health goals, examine the injuries and determine if you should go for dry needling.

How is Dry Needling Helpful?

IMS (Dry Needling Therapy) comes in handy when no other treatment works out. It stimulates the healing process and strengthens the affected muscles gradually. Most importantly, it boosts the natural healing response of your body.

  • Relaxes tensed muscles
  • Relieves chronic pain
  • Improves blood flow
  • Reduces neck pain
  • Releases neurotransmitters
  • Treats lower back problems
  • Improves mobility

What Injuries Can IMS Treat?

  • Tennis Elbow
  • Rotator cuff injuries
  • Shoulder pain
  • Hip osteoarthritis
  • Tension headaches
  • Muscle strains
  • Low back pain

How Many IMS Treatment Sessions Do You Need?

The number of IMS treatments varies from person to person. Our professionals assess the severity of your condition, the duration of your pain, the development of your scar tissue and the self-healing rate of your body. These details help them determine how many IMS treatments you need. As a matter of fact, the sooner you start the IMS treatment, the quicker you will recover. Deeply rooted pain takes a longer time to heal whereas recent pain may heal within two treatments.

The physio team at Legend are extremely skillful and genuinely care about their patients. Both Jodh and Jaspreet have been extremely helpful in my post ACL/ PCL knee surgery rehab and have been key in helping me reach a 80 degree flex after 6 weeks of surgery. Their new centre is also more spacious and their admin team has made improvements in the overall office cleanliness. Will share another post after my next 12 weeks of rehab journey.
