The importance of safety and clean techniques are taught and practiced throughout the workshop, ensuring that participants become accustomed to working with gloves and maintaining a neat and safe workspace throughout. They will practice the techniques of inserting, manipulating, removing and disposing of the needles on the first morning of the course.
Participants will learn and practice the use of superficial dry needling including fascia and scars, periosteal pecking, and deep dry needling of the buttock, ant hip, thigh, lumbar, abdominal, and pelvic floor muscles.
Clinical reasoning with importance of agonist/antagonist relationships, identifying active, latent and satellite trigger points, myofascial pain accompanied by joint pathology, and treatment priorities will be discussed near the end of the course. Case studies are included to apply clinical reasoning and recognize common indications for dry needling.
Students are examined at the end of each practical day with a competency exam.
