  • Certification candidates must submit 5 (five) case studies for review.
    • The case studies will be reviewed by advanced dry needling assistant faculty.
    • The reviewer will provide the certification candidate with a written critique of each case study.
    • Acceptable case studies include documentation of the ability to apply dry needling with the right choice of patient position, needle gauge and size, hand position and technique; to document response, overall patient outcome, and incorporate it into their overall rehabilitation plan and other treatment techniques.  
    • Special attention is given to safety, efficacy and clinical reasoning.
  • When the case studies have been reviewed, you will be notified of the results. If your case studies clearly demonstrate your competency, you will be invited to sit for the online examination.
