Dry Needling is a skilled intervention performed by a health care professional. This professional uses a fine filiform needle to penetrate the skin, creating a healing response in the tissue that has been lesioned. Tissues contributing to neuromuscularskeletal dysfunction can be dry needled, including muscle, fascia, tendon, capsule, ligament, peripheral nerve and microvascular structures. Patients who present with pain syndromes, neuromusculoskeletal disorders and movement impairment syndromes can all benefit from dry needling.

Testimonials From Our Students
I originally signed up for this course with the intention of using DN as a modality for addressing Trigger Points and therefore saving my hands. This course exceeded my expectations in more than one way. The education on the practical uses of DN and the scientific, evidence-based support, of this treatment and its modalities blew my mind and opened up so many more avenues of treatment (which don’t include seeking out Active Trigger points) for my patients. This is definitely a game changer for qualified individuals and their patients. I look forward to implementing DN and continuing to learn more techniques for advanced application of DN. Thanks Eric and Sue!
