CERTIFICATE IN DRY NEEDLING

Course Description:

This is a certification which serves a 5 whopping days of clinical knowledge. Here we will look into History taking, Anatomical, Theoretical, Practical hands-on and clinical aspects of Dry Needling, in addition to safety precautions and guidelines. Each muscle covered is reviewed in regards with origin, insertion, neuromuscular, vascular components and safety guidelines. Safety and efficacy of treatment both are focused. We recommend participants in the course to be familiar with anatomy and muscle function, although we will provide an update on anatomy and palpation skills.

Course Objectives:
  • Understand the specific indications and contra indications of dry needling.
  • Know and be able to apply the safety rules of DN.
  • Know possible side effects and complications of DN and will be able to react appropriately.
  • Have updated their anatomy skills and Knowledge.
Course Aims:

Understand basic scientific backgrounds of myofascial trigger points.Able to identify the trunk, spine, pelvis, hip, thigh, neck, upper and lower extremity, head, TMJ, hand and foot, shoulder muscles by surface anatomy palpation and by function and know their clinical symptoms and perpetuating factors.

Able to identify feature of trigger points by physical examination and Apply this knowledge to the trunk, spine, pelvis, hip, thigh, neck, upper and lower extremity, head, TMJ, hand and foot, and shoulder Muscles.

Why take DNC(Dry Needling Course) with us?

Quality of our course contents. As always we have been the top choice for breaking things down in details and making the complex simple to understand and apply. Our DNC cover extensively on clinical findings, clinical applications and technique specification so that every individual will be confident in using Dry Needling the very next day for practice. Our facilitators have extensively studied and practiced Dry Needling with a minimum of 1500 hours combined. Our format has been made that you will be practicing more hands on and recognizing what NOT to do(common mistakes) and what to look out for to enhance individuals techniques for DN.
