WHY ATTEND

Integrative Dry Needling Courses?

Why IDN?

Learn from the Innovation Leaders
in Dry Needling Education

Full Body Approach

You are not required to attend an Upper then Lower course that limits you to only treating specific muscles until you go back to another course. After our Foundation course you will be able and safe to treat most neuromuscular conditions encountered in clinic.

Neuromusculoskeletal Dysfunction

Our seminar DOES NOT focus solely on targeting specific muscles but addresses neuromusculoskeletal dysfunction (peripheral nerve mapping) as an interrelated systemic issue.

Next Level Learning

We respect all needling theories and concepts so for those clinicians with different dry needling training we clearly outline how IDN can elevate your clinical application and understanding to the next level. Tuition discounts available for those with prior dry needling training

Uniquely Adaptable Approach

The IDN model offers a uniquely adaptable approach for clinicians practicing in pain management, orthopedics, sports, neuro-rehab, occupational and preventative services that easily integrates into clinical practice.

Unique Concepts, Procedures & Techniques

  1. Neurologic Dry Needling– we literally wrote the (text) book on it!  Our Neurologic Dry Needling (NDN) model is based on addressing neurogenic inflammation, the cause of the majority of pain and dysfunction, in a unique and easy to understand framework.
  2. We offer Advanced Specialty Courses designed to elevate your clinical knowledge and effectiveness when treating difficult cases.
  3. Peripheral nerve mapping  is our treatment model using the peripheral nervous system as a guideline for evaluation, treatment, rehabilitation and prevention of soft tissue pain and dysfunction.
  4. Quantitative Sensory Testing (QST) of peripheral nerve sensitivity assists in predicting a patient’s prognosis when considering dry needling treatment.
  5. systemic model  that is reproducible and predictable that utilizes three types of neuro-trigger points; (1) Homeostatic  (2) Paravertebral and (3) Symptomatic that allow for an individualized treatment plan.
  6. Clinical procedures for both prevention and treatment of soft tissue pain and dysfunction.
  7. Special de-stressing technique enables optimal athletic performance.
  8. Inflict change, not pain- the majority of our needling techniques are painless or with minimal discomfort.
  9. Education in needling mechanisms, from microcirculation to neurochemistry, necessary to treat various conditions like spasm, radiculopathy, hypersensitivity, tissue edema, neuro-trigger points and neuromuscular imbalance.
  10. Self-maintenance techniques to greatly reduce the cumulative physical stress of daily clinical practice that manual therapists experience, which ultimately will prolong your professional career.
  • We do not require you to take an Upper then Lower course where you are limited in only treating those specific muscles or areas until you go back for additional training.  After our Foundation course you will learn the IDN system that will enable you to safely treat the majority of neuromuscular conditions from head to toe;
  • Our seminar DOES NOT focus only on targeting a specific muscle but addresses neuromusculoskeletal dysfunction (peripheral nerve mapping) as an interrelated systemic issue;
  • Our seminar presents the evolution of treating the system and not just the points;
  • Our seminar focuses on the neurological features of trigger points and the physiology of sensory nerve modulation, clarifying the common confusion in the myofascial trigger point approach over the past 40+ years;
  • Our seminar teaches techniques that REDUCES the reliance on manual procedures (palpation) that evidence-based research and clinical evidence show is unreliable and maybe unnecessary;
  • Our neuro-trigger point system focus on the peripheral nervous system to balance muscle agonist / antagonist relationships improving posture and coordinating movement;
  • Our quantitative sensory testing of neuro-trigger points can be used to predict the clinical efficacy of dry needling treatment with our IDN bedside exam;
  • We respect all needling theories and concepts so for those clinicians with prior needling training and experience we clearly outline how IDN can elevate your clinical application and understanding to the next level;
  • Our seminar integrates the benefits of traditional dry needling approaches enhancing the clinical efficacy while minimizing the  limitations of each classic approach;  Read more about the 4th Generation of Dry Needling.

We have trained thousands of clinicians across the country; here is what a few of them had to say about our courses.

Course Reviews

This course was very applicable to my clinical practice as an ATC. Teaching the systemic ideology makes it easier for the individual clinician to create appropriate plans of care for each patient.

Systemic ideology makes it easier CAROLYN PADALINO, PT

Very carefully laid out and thoughtfully planned course. Thorough and comprehensive. I fell much more confident to use as a treatment and am very glad I took this course!

Thoughtfully planned course EMILY DAY, PT

This course opened my eyes to ways to better influence the nervous system. I am confident that I will be able to better serve my patients with the new information and skills I have acquired.
