Dry Needling for Pain Management

Overview:
The purpose of the Pain Management Training Program is to develop the knowledge and clinical skills required to effectively diagnose and treat painful neuromuscular conditions using the FIN system. This training program has been designed to ensure that clinicians will have a clear understanding of how dry needling works to manage pain at the local and central nervous system levels. 

Participants will be able to immediately use the FIN system as a clinically proven modality and be able to safely, comfortably and proficiently use dry needling to treat any body part for pain and neuromuscular conditions:

  • face, 
  • TMJ, 
  • neck, 
  • shoulders, 
  • elbows, 
  • upper back
  • lower back, 
  • groin, 
  • posterior hip, 
  • knee
  • ankle regions

Course participants will be able to immediately integrate dry needling techniques into their clinical practice and will be able to:

  • Use the unique Functional Integrated method of dry needling (FIN)
  • Understand how dry needling works and how it controls pain
  • Use FIN assessment system to help accurately determine treatment plans
  • Locate targets used to effectively manage painful conditions in all regions of the body
  • Safely and painlessly insert needles using dry needling insertion techniques
  • Safely using painless insertion techniques

 

Course length & format

This 3-day intensive training program is based on instruction and explanations that are understandable and easy to remember and includes extensive practice to ensure mastery. The program is split between classroom instruction, demonstration and extensive and intensive practical programming and, in order to make the best use of the workshop, some self study pre-workshop learning is also required. 

In addition to extensive use of lab and practice sessions, students participate in mastery evaluations and feedback sessions that provide an opportunity for students to determine what additional instruction is required for complete mastery.
