Friday:  4:30-8:30pm
Saturday:  8:00am-8:00pm
Sunday: 8:00am-5:00pm

This course is a three-day  course to enhance and expand upon the foundational principles offered in our first 25-hour course. While this course is still designed to place heavy emphasis on practical, hands-on training and practice, the attendee will be introduced to more detail of current research regarding DN efficacy, physiological effects, controversies and potential adverse effects.  Peripheral and central sensitization issues will be discussed. The participant will be familiarized not only with HOW to needle but also WHAT functional outcomes may be influenced by needling, which is WHY we needle.

Some of the specific areas that will be discussed during this course are:

– Dry needling techniques of the lower leg
– Dry needling techniques of the arm & forearm
– Dry needling techniques of the parascapular region
– Nerve entrapment and peripheral neurogenic needling techniques
– Clinical integration of dry needling into the functional rehabilitation model of care
– Overview of the most common dry needling techniques: “the good, the bad, and the ugly” truths about each approach
