This foundational Dry Needling course of study teaches the insertion of fine filament needles into neuromuscular junctions/motor points, stimulating the muscle, and bringing pain relief and improved function to athletes and patients.
This course highlights "the good, the bad, and the ugly" clinical use of myofascial dry needling in clinical practice. Participants will learn the trigger point theoretical model, history of dry needling and the clinical reasoning process behind the use of dry needling in clinical practice.
