Foundations Course Reviews

IDN blew my other trigger point dry needling courses out of the water. Dr. Frank provides superior evidence-based knowledge with a whole-body approach and comprehensive understanding of the body. IDN helps bridge ortho, neuro and manual therapies for superior outcomes. I feel 100% confided with needling and whole-body integration after this course.

Superior evidence-based knowledge with a whole-body approach TRINA WINNER, PT

This course was very applicable to my clinical practice as an ATC. Teaching the systemic ideology makes it easier for the individual clinician to create appropriate plans of care for each patient.

Sonya was an excellent instructor. Very engaging, knowledgeable and attentive. I enjoyed the way this course was structured with the strong emphasis on the nervous system. I found the timing / structure of the labs to be very effective in aiding my comfort and competence with the new skill.

Very effective in aiding my comfort and competence ERIN ANDERSPON, PT

The IDN foundation course was an amazing course to get started in dry needling. I love that you leave with a foundation in the whole body and the explanation of the anatomy and neurology to see the big picture, not just learn a dry needling technique.

You leave with a foundation in the whole body JENNIFER DESANTIS, PT

    Advanced Course Reviews

    This course is the most comprehensive and thorough course I have ever attended. The details and logic behind the neurologic dry needling makes perfect sense. I cannot wait to apply everything that I have learned over this weekend course!

    Most comprehensive and thorough course I have ever attended JAKE JONES, PT

    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 STEPHEN WINNER, PT

    I always flet 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 MAMTA BERMEDA, OT

    An amazing course! Well planned and thought out, with evidence-based research directly related to our clinical experience.

    Evidence-based research KELLY TISEVICH, PT

    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 JOHN KRAVIC , PT

    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 LEIGH ALEXANDER, PT

      Cranio Cervical Course Reviews

      Well organized course for dry needling. Best dry needling course I have taken so far. The knowledge base supports understanding of treatment process.

      Best dry needling course I have taken TAEYONG KIM, PT

      I've really enjoyed all the IDN courses. The Cranio- Cervical course will be very useful to help the patient population I see in private practice.

      Really enjoyed the IDN courses RYAN RABORN, PT

      Frank makes the course and practical lab materials very comfortable and easy to practice/perform. The hands-on aspect is exceptional!

      Hands on aspect is exceptional CHRIS SMOLKO, PT

      I have taken training on many medical topics at some of the finest medical institutions, including Johns Hopkins, Mayo and others. Dr. Frank Gargano is the best instructor I've ever had.

      Best instructor I've ever had DR. RICHARD LOECHINGER, DC

      Course was very clear and direct. All course materials were well presented with very good illustrations. Lots of research articles to go with the lecture. Learned a practical application to enforce proper technique.

      Lots of research articles DAVID MALLGRAVE, PT

      The comprehensiveness and depth of the IDN courses is unmatched. Being able to walk into the clinic and having the knowledge and skills to treat patients is the best part.

      IDN course is unmatched JOHN GRIFFITH, PT

      Frank provided great clinical examples to help develop a deeper understanding of application. The practical application and getting greater understanding of the muscles of mastication and how they impact other body parts was very helpful.

        MSK Ultrasound Course Reviews

        The pre-course handout was very helpful. There was plenty of time to really dive deep into assessing and then needling. Steve is extremely knowledgeable and there was enough lab time to really practice and learn the technique.

        Enough lab time to really practice KATHERINE WELDON, PT

        I have been to many continuing education courses and this course with Steve is one of the best I have attended. Steve is very knowledgeable and the course covered a ton of clinical material.

        Course covered a ton of clinical material ERIK HOLMES, PT

        Great course with very relevant clinical application. Being able to view, treat and diagnose is a game changer.

        Game changer DAN FLEURY, PT

        Great course, great instructor and a great new tool to add to the tool box. Very excited to use in the clinic.

          Upper Extremity & Hand Course Reviews

          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!

          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! Marissa Hammond, OT

          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 Ashley Domec, DC

          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 Dianne LaCerra, OT

          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! Bree Bauerschmidt OTR/L, OTD

            Pelvic Course Reviews

            This course was sensational - above and beyond in introducing new techiques but also in helping to put them into a greater framework of clinical critical thinking.

            Greater framework of clinical critical thinking CHRISTINA MCGEE, PT

            This is a great course to bridge orthopedics and pelvic health. There are several tools (not just dry needling) to incorporate and have an immediate response on function. I also felt I received a helpful education to improve my own health.

            Bridges orthopedics and pelvic health JANINE LAUGHLIN, PT

            The integrative approach makes sense. I have been to another needling course and I felt this course content was more in depth and treated the body as a whole.

            Content was more in depth and treated the body as a whole TRINA WINNER, PT

            This course really took everything to the next level. It was truly integrative and great for those of us who aren’t geared for internal pelvic floor work. The course was everything I hoped and more!

            Truly integrative and great LEIGH ALEXANDER, PT

            Great class that provided great functional applications and a fresh take on treatmen for pain and postural dysfunction.

            Great functional applications SIMA SHALCHI, PT

            This course exceeded all expectations. As a pelvic health physical therapist, this course will add a new dimension to our practice and help our patients.

            Add a new dimension to our practice KIMBEREE SULLIVAN, PT

            I highly recommend that all practitioner's take this course, especially if they treat pelvic pain. This course will open you up to a whole new world.

            Recommend that all practitioner's take this course LAUREN STEELE, PT

              NRT Course Reviews

              Great interactive course to further my hands-on manual therapy skills with cupping, IASTM, and vibration/percussion from teachers who are excellent at conveying information.

              Further my hands-on manual therapy skills STAN SOCHA, PT

              I really appreciate IDN’s ability to challenge a clinician to think proximal to distal. The cupping course was a wonderful review of the nervous pathways and various treatment approaches to gain outcomes.

              Various treatment approaches to gain outcomes PETER TILL, PT, ATC

              IDN courses are second to none in offering course material that can be immediately brought into the clinic for improved outcomes.

              Immediately brought into the clinic for improved outcomes LUKE IDING, PT

              IDN courses get to the point of the matter. Their 720-degree approach treats the problem, not the symptoms providing the optimal setting for recovery.

              Approach treats the problem, not the symptoms JENNA TILL, PT
