evidence continues to support the utilization of dry needling techniques in
improving pain and function in patients with a variety of diagnoses. In this
course we will discuss and demonstrate various methods in how to use a needle
as an extension of a practitioner’s hands in facilitating the reduction of pain
and dysfunction in patients with general neuro-musculoskeletal disorders.
Instruction focuses first on recognizing the different theoretical paradigms
behind the use of a dry needle complimented with the clinical reasoning and
decision making behind how to safely and effectively use the needle within your
patient care. Using a multi-modal approach to patient care, participants will
be able to integrate the use of dry needling into their current practice
patterns immediately following this course.
