COURSE DETAILS & ITINERARY

2 DAYS PRACTICAL LAB COURSE FOR

Podiatrists  and Reflexologists

  

ü Functional Integrated Dry Needling for Pain management and Functional Rehabilitation is neurophysiological evidence based treatment which is based on the anatomy, physiology and biomechanics of the human body unlike acupuncture which is based on meridians as per the old Chinese technique.

ü The needling is performed on the trigger points, tender points, the pain pathways (modulation of PNS to CNS) which then are responsible for the proper conduction to the muscles, which is responsible for core pain management and functional rehabilitation (Pain is the means by which the Peripheral nervous system (PNS) warns the central nervous system (CNS) of injury or potential injury to the body).

ü The course has also high weight age of proper mechanism of stimulation of cartilage of knee joint with evidence and also the Antidode effect.

ü The course is developed by evidence based practice as well as references from the earlier studies.

ü The functional dry needling training can help in providing the healthcare professionals as a great tool to serve their patients and clients with great result in conjunction to their therapeutic modalities.

ü Functional integrated dry needling course also helps delegates in developing adequate knowledge in diagnosis and proper evaluation of various conditions and how to safely needle them.

ü Delegates will develop skills to not only give treatment or needling for pain management but also restoring their functional abilities and restricted movements.

ü Delegates will be having enough practical and laboratory sessions so as to get hands on needles and also to maintain OSHA standards and guidelines of safe needling and avoid any adverse effects.
