This 3-day (27.25 hour) intensive hands-on course will further develop and fine tune your knowledge and build expertise in musculoskeletal ultrasound and dry needling treatment of the upper and lower extremity joints and soft tissue. This is the final step in the MSK US certification process leading to becoming a Certified Musculoskeletal Ultrasound Clinician (Cert-MSUC) through the Integrative Dry Needling Institute. Diagnostic US replaces many of the antiquated bedside clinical tests that have poor sensitivity and specificity leading to inaccurate conclusions about the patient’s condition. Dry needling under ultrasound is paramount to specifically and effectively treat common MSK conditions such as partial tears and tendinopathies.
[Prerequisite - Successful completion of both the MSK US home study courses and Diagnostic US for the Assessment and Dry Needling Treatment of Tendinopathy]
The purpose of this competency course is to master the knowledge and demonstrate the clinical skills necessary to visualize joints and associated soft tissues allowing development of an appropriate treatment intervention or to make a referral. This applied-learning competency course combines live demonstrations, practical hands-on labs, and video learning. Students participate in small groups of 2 or 3 to practice achieving reliable and reproducible MSK US images, which will be evaluated by the instructor with individualized feedback provided. Supervised lab sessions are performed to safely and effectively visualize, and dry needle pathologic soft tissue structures.
