Why Dry Needling?
The Dry Needling Level 2 (DN2) course takes you to the next level in your journey using Dry Needling in your clinical practice and towards certifying as a dry needling practitioner.
Day 1 of the DN2 course provides a full theoretical and practical review of the basic DN info and techniques learned on the DN1 course. You will be assessed practically and have to demonstrate your DN skills as part of your certification as a DN practitioner.
Day 2 completed all the muscles not covered in day 1 for example; the ahds and feet, the abdomen, the head, neck and face, the deep groin and the thorax.
On day 3, we move into the clinical realm of dry needling incorporating your existing skills into treating more specific conditions by discussing patient presentation, differential diagnosis, pathology & treatment protocols for common conditions treated with dry needling.
You will learn by listening, discussing, practicing and dealing with specific clinical conditions like rotator cuff, cervical and sciatic neuropathies, groin and pelvic pain, tendinopathies, sports injuries, tennis elbow, pririformis, headaches and migraines, needling chronic conditions and combination treatments and more.
You will learn efficiency, ie how to use less needles & spend less time, how to needle chronic, advanced & complex areas like the face and TMJ, the deep neck and cranium, the pelvis and deep groin area, the chest, axilla, abdominals, deep muscle needling, aggressive needling for chronic muscle tears and other advanced needling protocols.
