Diagnostic Ultrasound for The Assessment & Dry Needling Treatment of Tendinopathy is a 2 day, 95% hands-on-training course. In this advanced level course, you will master the 5 P’s system of diagnostic US assessment and treatment to confidently identify normal anatomy to facilitate clinical decision-making. Ultrasound guided dry needling treatment is focused on utilizing percutaneous needle tenotomy (PNT) for all the shoulder tendon insertions and other common sites of tendinopathy of the upper and lower extremity such as lateral elbow, Achilles tendon insertion, patella tendon, quadriceps tendon insertion, gluteus medius and minimus insertions. Research of PNT on commonly visualized tendon dysfunction supports that dry needling, in the symptomatic areas, can yield long-term benefits that rival wet needling procedures i.e. 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.
