Description

S-916 Advanced Dry Needling

Pre-requisites: S-910 Lower Quadrant and S-911 Upper Quadrant Dry Needling. Clinicians must be cognizant of their individual state’s practice act as whether Dry Needling is considered within the scope of practice of physical therapists in their respective state. There may also be licensure requirements of a specific number of years in practice before receiving dry needling training or a specific number of hours of training before implementing Dry Needling into clinical practice.


Course Description: Dry Needling (DN) is a powerful, adjunctive tool for the orthopaedic manual physical therapist. However, when not placed in the context of a thorough subjective history, a comprehensive neuromusculoskeletal examination, and appropriate differential diagnosis, it can be challenging to accurately identify the most appropriate patients and achieve optimal patient outcomes. This course is designed to bridge the gap between DN theory to how this tool can be integrated into clinical practice seamlessly by presenting a case based approach to DN with an emphasis on clinical reasoning in order to provide first time exposure and education to clinicians on DN as well as review and improve effective technique with clinicians currently utilizing DN. Participants will cover the most commonly implicated muscles involved with frequently encountered thoracic, craniofacial and lumbar musculoskeletal dysfunctions. With concerns about complications from the invasive nature
of dry needling, ample amount of lab time will be spent on surface anatomy and palpation to ensure accurate location of relevant regional anatomy and safety of technique.


Course times:
Saturday 8:00am - 5:30pm with registration starting at 7:30am and Sunday 8:00am - 5:30pm.

Total hours: 16 CEU's
