In this 3.5 day, 25-hour lab-based course, you will have the opportunity to dissect and explore the human anatomy via fresh-frozen tissue cadavers. This is a full body dissection opportunity. The cadavers are not embalmed, which allows for a more realistic appreciation of tissue quality and fascial connections.
While this class is intended for an improved appreciation for human anatomy as it relates to dry needling safety, we value the relationship of dry needling with other clinical interventions such as manual therapy, therapeutic exercise, and strength and conditioning. Therefore, we encourage all healthcare and sport performance practitioners with a passion of improving their anatomical knowledge to join this course.
During lab, you will dissect a cadaver under the guidance of lab instructors, carefully exploring safety considerations and relevant anatomical relationships for a multitude of therapeutic interventions including dry needling, manual therapy and human movement. A maximum of 6 people per cadaver will facilitate the learning opportunity for each student, allowing a truly hands on dissection experience for each person.
