Event Description

 

 

Club Physio is the leading Dry Needling courses provider in the Uk, Ireland, Europe and the Middle East. Learn from the best!

Dry Needling (DN) is a skilled intervention that uses a thin filiform needle to penetrate the skin and stimulate underlying myofascial trigger points, muscular, and connective tissues for the management of neuromusculoskeletal pain and movement impairments. DN is used to treat dysfunctions in skeletal muscle, fascia and connective tissue and diminish persistent peripheral nociceptive input and reduce or restore impairments of function leading to improved activity and participation.

 

COURSE OVERVIEW & CONTENT FOR DN1

This introductory course is for all clinicians who want to introduce dry needling into their repertoire of skills for treating myofascial pain and MSK conditions.

Trigger point dry needling theory, anatomy and practicals for the following muscles will be covered.

  • Glutes and lumbar spine;
  • Cervical spine, Sternocleidomastoid and scap thoracic muscles.
  • Rotator cuff, Pectorals, Arm and Forearm.

This will give attendees a brand new prospective of managing many conditions with dry needling and open up new scope of practice and more effective patient management. Emphasis will be given on integrating new skills, advanced needling techniques and needling non-muscular conditions. Real life case patients are included to enhance the clinical reasoning skills.

Trigger point dry needling of muscles of following area will be covered.

  • Review of DN1 course;
  • TMJ and facial muscles;
  • Deep pecs, scalenes, serratus anterior and posterior;
