Project Description

Lower Limb (Podiatry) Dry Needling Course (2 Days)

An introductory course for evaluation and treatment of neuromyofascial pain and dysfunction present in both the acute and chronic orthopedic population.

Instruction will include evaluation and application of dry needling of neuromyofascial trigger points for musculature which is considered appropriate at the introductory level of training.

This two day course consists of a combination of lecture and theory, regional anatomy review, needle demonstration followed by a large amount of hands-on supervised practical sessions.

There is also a (non-intimidating) test, both written and practical to ensure adequate transfer of knowledge to all course participants.

Trigger point dry needling (TDN) will be presented as a tool to evaluate and treat the neuromuscular system. The Travell & Simons’ techniques will be discussed and demonstrated. Supporting research will be presented and discussed.

Treatment safety will be evaluated throughout the course.
