Course Overview

Dry Needling Institute Training

Current research, clinical trials, case studies, and my own personal experience all attest to the power of this evidence-based approach to treating soft tissue dysfunction.

With this powerful clinical tool, you can expand your scope of practice and contribute to the good of the public health by lessening the suffering of your patients, more efficiently and with longer lasting results.

Participants will learn how dry needling theory is based on the same anatomic, neurologic and biomechanical principles they already use in their day-to-day practice. Participants will also learn how to apply their kinesthetic training and other skills to a technique that is increasingly recognized to be effective for diagnosing the source of myofascial pain syndromes, and for treating both acute and chronic pain.

Participants will learn how to perform dry needling using fine, thin, solid filament needles and they will practice what they learn on each other, in the workshop, under the direction of the instructor. Finally, participants will leave the workshop with a start-up supply of needles that they can use in their offices with their own patients.
