Percutaneous Neuromodulation Therapy (PNT)

An highly effective technique for (persistent) pain! New analgesic technologies for mitigating and resolving pain as PNT was developed to solve persistent and stubborn pain.

PNT is an innovative, new and minimally invasive treatment for musculoskeletal pain in which electrical stimulation is delivered through a small needle in the peripheral nervous system. This can be highly effective for the treatment of:

Pain
Improving motor control
Range of motion

‚ÄčIt can be used for:   

Low back pain
Shoulder pain
Elbow and wrist pain
Knee pain
Lower limb pain
Tendinopathies
Muscle activation
Chronic pain.

In this course we will treat the following nerves:

Femoral nerve
Saphenous nerve
Sciatic nerve
Tibial nerve
Common peroneal nerve
Axillary nerve
Median nerve
Ulnar nerve
Radial nerve

CNS Stimulation & Rehabilitation Techniques:
With PNT we create changes in plasticity in the somatosensory- and motor system. In combination with our other new tDCS course we can optimize CNS stimulation and upgrade your rehabilitation techniques! These are developed from translational research and neurorehabilitation and are adapted to promote rapid gains in pain, strength and meaningful improvements in level of function.


Participants: This course is for (sports) physiotherapists, manual therapists, chiropractors

Accreditatie: Keurmerk 14 punten 

Note 1: Practitioner must have experience with MSU!

Note 2: In Spain the instructors use the name NMP (Neuromodulacion Percutanea) for this technique. This name will be used in the manual too.

In the field of Physiotherapy, ultrasound-guided Percutaneous Neuromodulation is defined as the application through a needle with ultrasound guidance of an electrical current at low or medium frequency, seeking a sensitive and / or motor response of a peripheral nerve in some point of its trajectory, or of a muscle in a motor point, with a therapeutic objective. PNT is always done under Ultra Sound guidance to assure maximum safety for the patient as well optimal needle positioning. 

This technique is proven (multiple international studies) to be highly effective for chronic pain and neuromuscular disorders. During the course we’ll see explain the working mechanisms of PNT the specific pathology indicated protocols and we do a lot of demonstration & practice sessions to learn and apply PNT in a safe an effective way.

We will guide you through the function as well the Ultra Sound scanning technique of each relevant nerve of the above mentioned pathologies. At the end of this two day basic course, every student will have to pass a practical test and will be asked to explain why and when he or she should applicate PNT or chose alternative treatment possibilities.
