Pelvic Pain Courses

Neurologic Dry Needling for Pelvic Pain and Dysfunction

This specialty course is the culmination of the work and clinical experience of Dr. Yun-tao Ma, Dr. Frank Gargano DPT, and Mark Hernandez, PT. The Integrative Dry Needling (IDN) training program will develop the knowledge and clinical skills required to effectively diagnose and treat painful neuromuscular conditions. This course teaches you to treat pelvic floor, lumbar, lower abdomen and anterior hip systemically in women and men. This also includes lumbopelvic pain related to sport and fitness activities. Our system is built on the foundation of Neurological Dry Needling that provides a logical and systematic process for addressing pelvic pain and dysfunction. As a result, course participants develop an adaptable clinical procedure allowing immediate integration of dry needling into the practice of clinicians wanting to expand their knowledge in this challenging area.


Pudendal and Perineal nerve regions are addressed for advanced pelvic treatment.


Peripheral nerve mapping provides a logical and systematic process for addressing pelvic pain and dysfunction.

Because of the neuroanatomy of the pelvic floor the dry needling techniques taught in this course do not require direct needling of the external genitalia and can be performed without disrobing the patient.
