This intermediate to advanced level Clinical Applications course is perfect for FDN1 and FDN2 graduates. The course allows practitioners to expand upon their practice of Level 1 techniques, learn new Level 2 muscles, and incorporate dynamic positioning techniques and more e-stim. It will teach the dry needling practitioner not just how to treat a muscle, but also how to utilize dry needling in treatment of the whole patient. Clinicians will learn how to incorporate dry needling within the scope of other modalities, and will learn to think and treat more globally. This course is vital to those wanting to integrate dry needling into their clinical practice and understand the treatment of the whole patient from start to finish.
Design of the course is to further expose participants to Functional Dry Needling, and to help practitioners develop a diagnostic theory to explain functional movement deficits, and apply a treatment plan to address them. Treatment techniques taught and utilized in this course will include new, intermediate FDN techniques, manual therapy techniques and corrective exercises. The course will develop clinical reasoning based on the model of movement dysfunction, which results in pain, rather than simply treating painful structures. The participants will have a greater understanding of “regional interdependence” and will be able to apply Dry Needling and other functional therapeutic techniques to address common and chronic dysfunctions found everyday in the clinic.
There is no other course offered that teaches both the assessment and decision-making process to develop an expertise utilizing and integrating dry needling and other manual therapy techniques together.
Come prepared to think and practice like never before!

The course ties in neuro with myotome testing, manual therapy, exercises, functional positioning, functional testing, assessment, etc. It can be a little over whelming at first, but if you go in with an open mind then, they really help you understand new research and old research..lots of information that is applicable to practice.
This course is way more than dry needling. People think that dry needling is used only for getting the trigger point, but this course makes you think beyond the symptoms and really helps you to understand the "why" or cause of symptoms.
