About the Event

As with the introductory course, this advanced course has a large practical component with particular emphasis on safe needling practice as set out in the latest PAANZ and IAPPT safety guidelines. The course is designed to help practitioners continue to integrate dry needling and segmental needling into their clinical approach with a view to addressing the underlying causes of some of the more difficult clinical presentations we treat (including headache, cervical dysfunction, TMJ disorders and scapulothorax dysnfunctions). As with the introductory segmental and dry needling course there is emphasis on how to address the underlying cause(s) of these clinicial presentaions.
