Myofascial Dry Needling courses
What are they & what will you learn?
Myofascial Dry Needling courses will deliver a treatment approach that applies fine needles to the musculoskeletal system to deactivate myofascial trigger points.
Myofascial dry needling courses will demonstrate the technique as it is used in the treatment of chronic pain syndromes such as fibromyalgia and back pain.
Some authors argue that myofascial dry needling is more effective in treating chronic back pain than commonly employed manual therapies.
In my clinical experience, it often yields dramatic results where other manual methods have failed, but not always.
While myofascial dry needling employs the tools of acupuncture practice (acupuncture needles), the paradigms that underpin myofascial dry needling and acupuncture are completely different.
In contrast, the acupuncture paradigm is based on thousands of years of clinical observation and involves a systemic approach to the diagnosis and treatment of disharmonies within the body.
Myofascial dry needling is primarily focused on musculoskeletal injuries and, as such, is utilised as a specialist tool to accompany soft tissue skills.
