Functional Dry Needling of the Pelvic Floor is a lab intensive on-site course designed to instruct participants in the application of dry needling to female and male pelvic floor musculature and associated neuroanatomical structures including the thoracolumbar spine, abdomen, pelvis and hip joint complex. This course will provide a comprehensive review of anatomy, practice hands-on examination techniques and discuss clinical reasoning related to disorders of the pelvic floor.
This course is a revolutionary approach to treating patients with pelvic floor dysfunction commonly associated with pelvic pain, incontinence, voiding dysfunction and/or sexual pain or dysfunction. Dry needling will assist with the restoration of muscle function, improve proprioception, reduce and eliminate pain, and normalize tissue sensitivity to optimize patients’ function and quality of life.
Note on prerequisites for this course: In addition to prerequisite course, participants must submit a log of 200 dry needling sessions (the log must include four muscles). Or, participants may successfully complete the course, Functional Dry Needling: Clinical Integration, and submit a log of 100 dry needling sessions.
The course was fabulous! It offers another treatment strategy for these patients that may be "tougher," but also really any patient who needs a muscle or neuro reset to allow further improvement on top of that.
The course offers another useful strategy/treatment avenue for complex populations.
