The Advanced Neurologic Dry Needling for Pain Management and Performance Enhancement Courseisdesigned to provide our students with a deeper understanding of the therapeutic effects of dry needling on neuropathic and radiculopathic pain syndromes. The examination and management of peripheral nerve inflammation/sensitization, neuromuscular dysfunction and biomechanical imbalance of the musculoskeletal system will be presented. We will discuss the negative effects that peripheral nerve inflammation has on muscle function and how integrative dry needling can assist in maximizing human (athletic) performance. Integration of Manual Therapy and other treatment options will be included that will complement the efficacy of dry needling treatment. A considerable amount of lab time is focused on assuring safe and effective advanced dry needling skills with an emphasis on clinical decision-making.
