Why Dry Needling?
DRY NEEDLING LEVEL 2 COURSE
The DN level 2 course is the extension of the DN level 1 introductory course and the pre-cursor to certifying as a dry needling practitioner.
It all comes together on the DN2 course starting off with a review of the DN1 course – dry needling principles and practice / safety / physiology / pain management / anatomy and no-go-areas and then we review needling of the main muscles from the DN1 course while practically assessing your technique.
Participantsare then taught to needle the rest of the bodies muscles (tmj and face, neck, hands, feet, abdomen and pelvis) that are not covered on the DN1 course.
DN2 also focuses on how to best incorporate dry needling into clinical practice by discussing needling for specific clinical conditions including tendinopathies, arthropathies, neuropathies and DN in sports. Each clinical condition is discussed according to symptom presentation< differential diagnosis, identification of primary, secondary, satellite, associated and latent trigger points, and when / how to needle in association with other treatment techniques / training / competition / rehabilitation programmes. Clinical conditions discussed include rotator cuff pathology, headaches and migraines, plantar fasciitis, patella and achilles tendinitis, tennis elbow, sciatica and piriformis syndrome, pelvic pain and muscle injuries. DN2 will also take up to 3 live patients on the course and demonstrate assessing and treating a patient in accordance with DN principles and techniques (subject to local laws and accreditation regulations). Pre-requisites for attending the DN Level 2 course; completion of the DN Level 1 course and a minimum of 3-6 months needling in clinical practice. The online theory exam can be taken and completed after the DN2 course to certify as a DN Practitioner. Why Dry Needling?
Dry Needling is a very successful medical treatment which uses very thin needles without any medication (a dry needle) to achieve its aim. Dry Needling is used to treat pain and dysfunction caused by muscle problems, sinus trouble, headaches, and some nerve problems. It is not at all the same as acupuncture. Acupuncture is part of Traditional Chinese Medicine, whereas dry needling is a western medicine technique, which needs to have a medical diagnosis. Uhere is a clear scientific understanding of dry needling, and it carries not spiritual “baggage” as acupuncture may do.
Dry Needling becomes more and more popular all over the world. Don´t get left behind and learn this progressive technique!
