This course provides a practical framework to effectively treat neurological, myofascial, and joint dysfunctions with this dry needling paradigm.
I agree with the statement from the beginning of the course, “last course you leaned to treat a patient 360 degrees, at the end of this course you will be able to treat a patient 720 degrees.”
The Advanced course took what I do already and made it make sense holistically. Thinking about the patient in 306 degree/ 720 degrees will allow me to get to the cause of the pain and its solution in a more effective way. Frank’s presentation is engaging and frequently socratic, allowing interaction/input by the students.
Awesome course, excellent comprehensive content. Frank is so knowledgable and provides information that will take your daily practice to another level.
The IDN courses are great. Highly knowledgable instructors do an awesome job with clear explanations, demonstrations and descriptions of practical application. I like the whole body approach of IDN, not just treating pain.
This course expanded the foundation level incredibly. I was never so excited to get poked in the neck.
I took the “Foundations” course from Dr. Griswold and the “Advanced” CIDN course from Dr. Gargano. I found both instructors to be highly educated in their own rights as top tier physical therapist, even outside of the “Dry Needling” realm. But this made the IDN courses, from them all the more enjoyable and meaningful. I was impressed by their knowledge in the field of Dry Needling, and they level of training they received from Dr. Ma. Their courses were organized and well prepared, which allowed the practitioner to build their understanding in a clear, concise, logical fashion. I felt confident performing Integrative Dry Needling, the very first day upon returning back to my clinic, and have seen many wonderful results ever since. I highly recommend studying under the IDN school.
This was a very informative course, that I will apply into my daily treatment. It has advanced my thought process and leaves me feeling challenged to learn more.
This class really expanded upon and upgraded my knowledge of the neuromuscular relationships throughout the body and how IDN can really enhanced what Im already doing.
Amazing presentation and expansion of the foundation course. This gives me many more tools and confidence in my delivery of IDN to my clients. Thank you so much.
Frank and the IDN team give you the tools, confidence, and freedom/encouragement to be safe, but really get you thinking about how to get to the source of my patients signs and symptoms
This course definitely opened my thought process of how to treat a patient on a bigger / broader level.
This course provided me with a good review of concepts from the foundation course and much more in depth understanding of clinical application. I am eager to use these new techniques with my patients.
Great course and Frank is a top notch instructor. Dry needling has been the best and most effective tool.
The advanced IDN course has taken my understating of dry needling and the nervous system to the next level. Just like I don’t know how I practiced PT without dry needling, I don’t know how I dry needled with out the knowledge I attained in the advanced course.
Well presented material with immediate clinical relevance that can be used day 1. Very relaxed learning environment.
I have been needling for 4 years now and learned a different way to think when needling patients. Not just looking at the muscles that hurt with palpitation, but really looking above, below, 360, 720 degrees. Everything I learned in the course I will definitely be using in the clinic.
I love the way Frank and IDN present the information. There is a great balance between lecture and practical portions so that I feel more than competent to perform all the techniques learned safely.
The advanced training has provide me with a greater appreciation for incorporating the peripheral nervous system into treatment planning to truly capture a more comprehensive plan to address dysfunction and pain.
This course (both foundation and advanced) has totally changed the way I practice. It has give me a tool for treatment that I feel is much more powerful then only my use of hands or any other tool that I have had available to me in my 17 years of practice.
