The purpose of the Neurologic Dry Needling for Pain Management and Sports Rehabilitation Course is to obtain knowledge and clinical skills necessary to diagnose and treat soft tissue pain and dysfunction using the Integrative Dry Needling (IDN) concept.  This 27-hour applied-learning course combines interactive lectures and practical hands-on labs. Students participate in several practical sessions, which are intended to provide feedback to students regarding their comprehension of key concepts and techniques. These practical lab sessions enable students to critically self-evaluate if additional instruction or self- study is needed for clinical competency.

TRAVEL RESTRICTION: Please be aware of the Vermont travel restrictions before registering for the course.

Description

IDN Foundation Course  – Neurologic Dry Needling for Pain Management and Sports Rehabilitation

Neurologic Dry Needling for Pain Management and Sports Rehabilitation is the culmination of the work and clinical experience of Dr. Yun-tao Ma and Dr. Frank Gargano DPT. The Integrative Dry Needling (IDN) training program will develop the knowledge and clinical skills required to effectively diagnose
and treat painful neuromuscular conditions.

IDN teaches you to treat the body systemically; we do not divide the body into upper and lower halves requiring you to take 2 courses before you can treat the entire body.  Our system is built on the foundation of Neurological Dry Needling that provides a logical and systematic process for addressing pain and dysfunction.  As a result, course participants develop an adaptable clinical procedure allowing immediate integration of dry needling into clinical practice.

Objectives

Course Content

The Integrative Dry Needling Foundation Course for Pain Management and Sports Rehabilitation covers:

  • Dry needling techniques- (80% of the needling technique is virtually pain-free)
  • Detailed, tried and tested needling safety techniques and contraindications for dry needling therapy to avoid human error in clinical practice.
  • Adaptable dry needling system that easily adapts to clinical practice and to the specific needs of each patient.
  • Systemic Homeostatic trigger point concept (physiological and biomechanical approach).
  • Paraspinal trigger point concept (neurosegmental and dermatomal approach).
  • Symptomatic trigger point concept (neuromyofascial pain in the head, neck, shoulder, upper limbs, thoracic, lumbar, hip and lower limbs).

Learning Objectives

    1. Independently identify each of the three types of trigger points (homeostatic, paravertebral and symptomatic) in a given case study.
    2. Integrate the physiological mechanisms of needling when developing a treatment plan for a given musculoskeletal condition.
    3. Discuss the prevention and management of adverse responses to dry needling based on OSHA requirements with 100% accuracy during case study.
    4. Independently apply dry needling treatment safely into musculoskeletal trigger points during lab sessions.
    5. Independently evaluate soft tissue dysfunctions relating to a given musculoskeletal condition and pain.
    6. Correctly defend the IDN system for treatment of musculoskeletal pain based on the unique neurology and physiology of neuro-trigger points.
    7. Independently discuss integrating the IDN system into the participant’s physical therapy practice in relation to current clinical, legislative and billing barriers.

Learning Activities

The 27 hour intensive practical classroom structured program addresses theory and key principles with extensive and supervised participant practice.

  • Multiple PowerPoint presentations with video support will begin each new section.
  • Instructor demonstration of the techniques allowing ample time for questions.
  • Interactive lab session will follow where the participants practice and discuss each new technique and concept.
  • After each interactive lab section is concluded there is an instructor summary and time for any additional questions.
