About the Event

Course Schedule: Sat 2nd April 8:00am-5:00pm and Sun 3rd April 8:00am-3:30pm

The Advanced Dry Needling course for the Upper Half of the Body aims to teach course participants how to needle myofascial components  from T7 upward. This is a very practical course, including the teaching  of advanced techniques around the scapulothoracic region, shoulder,  upper limbs and neck with particular emphasis on safety and efficacy. One of the major goals is for participants to integrate  the use of dry needling into their clinical reasoning process and their  clinical approach to treat common (and not so common) upper body  conditions.

Case studies will be discussed to  further enhance the clinical reasoning behind the use of dry needling,  and its integration with other physiotherapy skill sets, such as manual  therapy, muscle balancing, exercise prescription and postural advice.

Course Prerequisite:

Attendance requires completion of one of  the following courses: PAANZ Foundation Dry Needling Course, APA  Introductory Segmental and Dry Needling Course, Post-Graduate Western  Acupuncture qualification from AUT or Otago. If you have undertaken dry  needling training from another provider please contact the PAANZ  administrator to see if it qualifies as a pre-requisite for the Advanced  Course.
