IDN has collaborated with Dr. Steve Coppola PT, DPT, Cert. MSKUS to provide a musculoskeletal ultrasound guided dry needling course that is 95% hands-on-training. You will master our 5 P’s system of assessment and treatment allowing you to confidently identify normal anatomy to facilitate clinical decision-making. Ultrasound guided dry needling treatment is focused on utilizing percutaneous needle tenotomy (PNT) for the shoulder tendon insertions and other common sites of tendinopathy of the upper and lower extremity such as lateral epicondyle origin, Achilles tendon insertion, patella tendon, quadriceps tendon insertion, gluteus medius and minimus insertion. Research of PNT on commonly visualized tendon dysfunction supports that dry needling, in the symptomatic areas, can yield long-term benefits that rival Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) injections. You will learn and be able to give visual feedback to your patients demonstrating the anatomical condition of their joints and tendons.
*This is an advanced level course and it is a requirement that you have prior dry needling training andexperience.
*Course content is not intended for use by participants outside the scope of their license or regulation.
