WHEN NEW COURSE LOCATIONS LAUNCH!
This specialty course is designed for licensed healthcare professionals who treat neuromusculoskeletal conditions in the upper extremity and hand. The participant will learn IDN’s neurologic model of dry needling and how to integrate this physical agent modality into their daily clinical model of treatment. This lab-based course is focused on using dry needling as a tool to manage pain, restore function and to maximize soft tissue healing and elasticity. IDN’s peripheral nerve mapping model provides the framework for the clinician to address common neuromusculoskeletal conditions encountered in daily practice such as: tendinopathy, epicondylalgia, tenosynovitis, intrinsic and extrinsic tightness, shoulder rotator cuff/impingement syndromes, nerve entrapments, radicular pain, and OA. The course is designed for clinicians with and without prior dry needling training or experience to attend. The main focus is for the clinician to obtain safe and effective dry needling skills using sound clinical decision-making.
The purpose of this course is to be able to utilize dry needling to effectively and efficiently manage any neuromuscular condition in the upper extremity and hand .
Dry needling has recently become an accepted treatment modality performed by Occupational and Physical Therapists to address the unique characteristics of soft tissue pain, dysfunction and loss of function. The popularity, research and use of dry needling are increasing in the field of Occupational and Physical Therapy and there are several methods and schools of thought on how to integrate dry needling into clinical practice. This course provides a working framework, within the scope of an Occupational and Physical Therapist's knowledge and practice, to deliver effective and safe dry needling treatment to improve function.

It was so awesome to see new techniques and learn from a team as knowledgeable in neuroscience as this one. Truly the most knowledgeable instructors I have had in any CEU course-again so refreshing and appreciated!This course was so refreshing!
The content and conceptual ideology and theory of IDN is exceptional. This program provides a 720-degree view of the patient involvement. The IDN approach and techniques is unrivaled by other trigger point-based theories.IDN is exceptional
I always felt as a therapist that I was missing the link somewhere. Something was not adding up. Dry Needling is the answer I was looking for! It helped me connect the dots and I have a better understanding of the system as a whole. The course was very thorough and was an amazing review on anatomy.Better understanding of the system as a whole
The course was highly effective. Having never needled prior, it was a great mix of basic and advanced material that allowed me to build confidence in a new skill.Highly effective!
I appreciate that IDN is ahead of the curve in acknowledging the role of the CNS in musculoskeletal pain and not solely focusing on tissues.IDN is ahead of the curve
IDN teaches you not only to how to needle but how to question and clinically reason through your treatments. It’s not a cookie cutter approach of “here’s one diagnosis, this is what you do”. The course makes your think critically and work hard, but you’ll come out with many ways to not only help patients using dry needles, but how to integrate the modality into any plan of care across all the spectrums of patients.Not a cookie cutter approach
The Upper Extremity course provided excellent details on how to treat UE and hand like it hasn't been treated before. Although I have been needling in clinic for 3 years using IDN technique, this course has changed the game for my 10 year shoulder problem- it feels much better already!Game Changer
Thank you to Frank and Sonya for this new innovative UE dry needling course. I've been waiting for year for a course that included OT's at a level that was appropriate for all levels of practice.Waiting for years for this course
Amazing! Takes you by the hand and teaches you how to dry needle the upper extremity and hand step-by-step. The multimedia approach lends itself to all learners and styles it was well structured so its easy to get inspired and learn now to implement your own technique.Amazing!
The course is structured around practical hands-on clinical training in a supervised and supportive environment.
