I really enjoyed the process in which the info was presented from lecture to 3D anatomy, to teachers demonstrations in the lab. It helped me solidify the info and be more confident in the skills. The teachers were supportive with the goal of getting us comfortable within our limits and not pushing us to push needles as deep as able. I really appreciated their style as well as the IDN approach to dry needling.
It was an awesome balance of new technical skills, clinical reasoning, and anatomy review. Sonya used multiple teaching tools and visual aids to clearly teach the material. She provide excellent examples of clinical application which kept the class engaged. I feel conduced in the techniques and am better equipped to treat the whole body.
The IDN course content and presentation exceeded my expectations. Sonya and Stephanie are fantastic instructors and their teaching method stimulated my though process for clinical reasoning that will carry over in my daily patient care.
Both instructors were well versed and passionate about dry needling. The material presented was easy to understand and I feel well prepared to needle in the clinic come Monday morning.
I have looked at other dry needling courses, but in searching, this one seemed to make the most sense for how my brain works. This weekend, I learned so much in how to take care of the neuromuscular processes versus just the points of pain, for hopefully longer lasting results. Sonya and Stephanie made it interesting, explained everything well and the course was laid out in a comprehensive, progressive manner.
This course was excellent. The mix of lecture and practical labs was fantastic. It made me feel confident that I could needle a patient Monday morning.
Sonya and Stephanie were a great team! They worked so well together. I loved how Sonya used Visible Body and Stephanie used Essential Anatomy. They were both very engaging and passionate about IDN.
Sonya and Stephanie were a great pair and they made dry needling which originally made me nervous something that I can now use to be a better clinician.
I have practiced dry needling from another nationally known dry needling group and I noticed that other PT’s in my clinic were getting better results with chronic pain patients than me. Therefore I enrolled in the IDN foundation course.
This has been one of the best continuing education courses I’ve done. The quality of the content and instructions have been the best. Great professional instructors. Thank you Sonya and Stephanie.
Great dry needling course. I have attended other dry needling course and did not feel prepared to go into the clinic and perform dry needling after the course.
Excellent course material provided an easy to follow, non threatening manner with helpful and effective lectures. Dry needling has enabled me to progress patients through plateaus and reduce symptoms faster and completely returning them to active pain free lifestyles.
Excited to use what Ive learned. I feel so much more confident in my skills now than I did before the advanced course. Effective lectures, demonstrations and labs. Dave and Sonya are both amazing and super helpful.
The Advanced course really increased my knowledge of dry needling, especially from a neurological perspective. This will change my entire approach to patient care.
Dry needling has allowed my patients recovery to become expedited, changed their pain patterns, and improved their quality of life and function. Plus, my hands are feeling much less worked.
This class is the greatest! I came in a nonbeliever and terrified of needles myself but after a colleague who was IDN trained help me gain mobility of my shoulder I took IDN as quick as I could. It works and has helped so many of my patients.
IDN has improved my clinical skills not only by providing another modality or intervention but by providing a framework on how the nervous system and circulation influence pain, dysfunction, and healing of tissue.
I found this course to be a great extension of the knowledge gathered in the foundation course. The Advanced course challenged the anatomical understanding of the body and the neurological system to a higher level for a comprehensive approach to improving musculoskeletal disorders.
IDN provides a comprehensive approach to treating our most commonly seen neuromuscular conditions. Dry needling allows a direct needle to influence nervous and muscular tissue to facilitate greater patient outcomes.
