The Functional Dry Needling (FDN) Level 1 course gives clinicians the tools to elevate their practice to a new level of patient care. This foundational Functional Dry Needling course of study teaches the insertion of fine filament needles into neuromuscular junctions/motor points, stimulating the muscle, and bringing unbelievable pain relief and significantly improved function to athletes and patients who have been suffering for years.
FDN Level 1 teaches important dry needling techniques and involves ample lab time to test, practice and perfect the art and science of Functional Dry Needling so you can offer this to your patients the very next day. Musculature taught in the introductory level involves areas of the hip, lower extremity, thigh, upper extremity, shoulder, lumbar spine and cervical spine. A strong emphasis on safety and precaution is reinforced, as well as clinical application, research, history of dry needling, and relevant case study.

It's a great course, not just to learn the techniques of dry needling but to learn the concepts of the functional assessment; implementing myotome screening will significantly change my outcomes and success as a PT.
I loved the course, it made me feel a new wave of excitement about our field. I felt confident applying the skill in clinic the next day.
