In 21 years of physical therapy practice, I have used a wide variety of techniques and modalities. Integrative dry needling as developed by Dr. Ma has proven to be a most valuable treatment tool to quickly relieve pain and improve mobility in my patients. Integrative Dry Needling complements manual therapies and exercise, allowing me to successfully treat pain problems with a systems strategy. It is well-tolerated by my patients and is supported by an extensive evidence base. It also has the enormous advantage of using a predictable outcome assessment, to quickly determine which patients have the most potential to benefit. I highly recommend this course!
