This course is a three day introductory course to utilize Dry Needling in clinical practice and is open to ONLY Physical Medicine Doctors like Chiropractic Physicians and Doctors of Physical Therapy. The course will begin by reviewing the history of the technique, safety, and protocols for the vast majority of conditions we treat. You’ll be able to treat Neck Pain, Back Pain, Shoulder Pain and More whether you have 10 minutes to spend with each patient or an entire hour. These techniques are scalable depending on the desired result.
After completing CN1, you will find that just like your palpation skills, your new skills of detecting needle depth and position will have developed into an art of their own. If you’re like many Dry Needlers, you’ll be so inspired by the results of the techniques you’ve learned in CN1, that there will be other body regions and conditions you’ll want explore. With new skill and confidence our Advanced Dry Needling class will delve into the body regions which require more considerations when it comes to safety like the Thoracic Spine and TMJ. We’ll also go beyond Trigger Points and address Peri-Neural Needling as well as Periosteal Pecking. Finally, we’ll also include condition-specific protocols to address the most common cases that present in a Physical Medicine setting.
