No prerequisites are needed for this three-‐day 27-‐hour course in dry needling; however, registrants must be a licensed physical therapist, osteopath, medical doctor, naturopathic doctor or acupuncturist in their respective state or country. Certification in Dry Needling (Cert. DN) will be awarded upon successful completion (i.e. written and practical examination) of both the DN-‐1 & DN-‐2 courses, giving 54 hours of hands-‐on dry needling education in total.
Participants will learn superficial and deep dry needling techniques for the treatment of lumbopelvic and lower extremity musculoskeletal conditions. This course does include, but is not limited to, needling of taut bands of muscle (i.e. trigger points) as classically introduced by Travell & Simons. Needle puncture of tendons, ligaments, musculotendinous junctions, teno-‐osseus junctions, and bone (“periosteal pecking”) will also be taught as essential components of musculoskeletal needling practice. Furthermore, peri-‐neural needling will be instructed for the purpose of improving microcirculation and disrupting fibrosis in chronic neurogenic pain syndromes. Dry needling is certainly a lot more than sticking needles in trigger points!
