Course background and aim

Dry needling (DN) continues to develop as an important intervention in the management of painful soft tissue disorders. No less that 15 systematic reviews now describe and evaluate the effectiveness of dry needling for both symptoms and across body regions. Moreover, technology is driving the development of customised needles and best practice guidelines are under development. These can all be overwhelming for the busy practitioner to absorb and incorporate into daily practice. This seminar will build on the foundational knowledge of clinicians who are already familiar with DN in order to increase the level of sophistication of DN intervention delivery as well as providing tutelage in DN less commonly delivered.

Learning goals

  • Provide an update on current thoughts around Myofascial Pain Syndromes
  • Provide an update on the status quo and issues around DN interventions
  • Break down the components of dry needling that are important to consider for the clinician.
  • Develop the psychomotor skills competency of practitioners in performing DN interventions on muscles in different regions of the body.
  • Consider patient management strategies to optimise the effectiveness of DN interventions.
