Dry needling often achieves quick results and complements other treatments such as active exercise programs, acupuncture, and joint mobilization/manipulation. The Dry Needling Level 1 course presents the concepts and theories regarding myofascial trigger points with a self-guided online component, followed by a 3-day onsite session that teaches hands-on skills and techniques for a variety of muscles. Safety guidelines are emphasized throughout. Acupuncture Canada’s program uses the trigger point approach.
Dry Needling Level 1 addresses low back pain, piriformis syndrome, hip dysfunction, rotator cuff pathology, lateral epicondylosis, groin strain and other common conditions. Learning outcomes include:
1. Identifying referred pain patterns for specific muscles.
2. Identifying contraindications and precautions to dry needling.
3. Developing needle handling skill and competency.
