Musculoskeletal Segmental and Dry Needling For Physios


This course is designed as an introductory or refresher course for physiotherapists who have an interest in Western acupuncture, segmental needling and /or dry needling. The theoretical content is based on the neurophysiology of the effects of needling including local, spinal and supraspinal effects and the modulation of pain via its central effects. The aetiology of trigger points is explained and the most common dry needling techniques are presented. This course has a large practical component and upon completion of the course participants will be competent to needle a wide range of acupuncture and myofascial trigger points and other musculoskeletal structures. This course meets the minimum requirements for private indemnity insurance coverage.


At the completion of this course, participants should be able to:

• Adequately assess a patient in terms of contra-indications and precautions for acupuncture or dry needling.

• Safely needle commonly used acupuncture and trigger points.

• Understand neurophysiology (including local, segmental and extra-segmental) of needling and apply clinical reasoning to the practice of acupuncture and dry needling.
