Difference between Functional Integrated Dry Needling and ‘normal’ Dry Needling

Normally dry needling is done on trigger points but what if there are no trigger points? Functional Integrated Dry Needling is a new technique that is done not only trigger points but also tender points.

FIDN also follows the peripheral nerves and therefore the flow of the pain pathways. Intradiscal needling and the stimulation of the cartilage /menisci of the knee will be demonstrated and taught.

Course developed by evidence-based practice 

Course Details

Neurophysiological evidence-based treatment based on the anatomy, physiology and biomechanics of the body

Functional Integrated Dry Needling for Pain Management and Functional Rehabilitation is a neurophysiological evidence-based treatment that 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.

The needling is performed on the trigger points, tender points, the pain pathways (modulation of PNS to CNS) which 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).

The course has also a high weightage of proper mechanism of stimulation of cartilage of the knee joint with evidence and subsequent antidode effect. The course is developed by evidence-based practice as well as references from earlier studies.

Develop skills for pain management and restoring patient’s functional abilities

The Functional Dry Needling training can help in providing the healthcare professionals with a great tool to serve their patients and clients with great results in conjunction with their therapeutic modalities.

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.

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

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.
