Dry Needling


Learn about muscles as a source of pain and the treating opportunities provided by acupuncture/dry needling. A contextual review of traditional Chinese medicine will set the scene but the course will focus on the neuro-physiology of pain and myofascial trigger points. Predominantly a practical course, participants will needle over forty different body parts and will gain significant improvements in their understanding of musculoskeletal conditions, surface anatomy knowledge and palpation skills. This course is a vital element in musculoskeletal education and is a must for all contemporary physiotherapists.

 


At the completion of this course, participants should:

• Understand the theory and principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and acupuncture

• Understand the theory and principles of myofascial trigger points

• Understand the theory and principles of dry needling

• Safely and confidently insert acupuncture needles for the relief of musculoskeletal pain
