About the Event

Course Schedule: Sat 18th September 8:00am-5:00pm and Sun 19th September 8:00am-3:30pm

The course is an introduction to Dry Needling, learning to needle major muscle groups in all areas of the body but focused looking at conditions such as Achilles Tendonosis, Shoulder Impingement and SIJ dysfunctions. As we look at each of these conditions we teach you how to needle trigger points in the muscles that may be dysfunctional in those conditions and then look at how to rehab the conditions using exercises/stretches that Trevor has developed. The Foundation Course teaches you to needle most major muscle groups in the body safely and plenty to take back and use with patients on Monday morning! However we do not needle over the thorax in the Foundation Course because of the risk of pneumothorax. Needling muscles over the thorax is considered more advanced and therefore is included in the Advanced Upper Limb Course.   The course is designed to help practitioners integrate dry needling into their clinical approach with a view to addressing the underlying causes of some of the more common clinical presentations we treat. Having taught over 180 introductory and advanced courses for AUT, PAANZ, the APA of Australia and Asia over the last 12 years. Trevor brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to his teaching in this specialty area.
