Dry Needling Part I - Instructed by Eric Krell, PT, DPT, Cert DN, MTC, MSKUS Cert is organized by University of St. Augustine for Health Sciences (USAHS) and will be held from Jun 07 - 09, 2019 at Little Rock, Arkansas, United States of America. Hours: 25 or 2.5 CEU Prerequisite: None Who Attends: Physical Therapists Description: This 3 day seminar will provide the physical therapist with a thorough understanding of the history and current evidence regarding the use of Dry Needling in clinical practice. The seminar will build a foundation on which the attendee may then integrate Dry Needling into clinical physical therapy practice. This seminar is a lab intensive, hands-on class. Participants will safely handle needle manipulation and acquire motor skills necessary to perform a skilled needling session. Participants should come prepared to practice dry needling and also be prepared to play the part of the practice patient. Intramuscular Dry Needling Part I is the first seminar of a two part certification program divided into upper and lower quadrants. Practical observation and testing occurs at the conclusion of each class (Part I & Part II) with a final written exam taking place after the completion of Part II. The testing is conducted in order to assure that the clinician attains a safe and effective level of clinical practice in DN techniques. Learning Objectives: Upon completion of this seminar, attendees will: • Discuss the origins, history and evolution of dry needling • Classify the origins and distinguishing factors of Latent and Active Myofascial Trigger Points • Describe the neurophysiological effects of dry needling on Myofascial Trigger Points and Myofascial Pain Syndrome • Demonstrate appropriate communication to the patients of the risks, benefits and potential for adverse events of dry needling • Develop a comprehensive dry needling treatment regimen for the cervical, scapulo-thoracic, craniofacial and upper extremity regions based on common patient complaints, current evidence and physical exam findings to support manual therapy and therapeutic exercise • Identify and incorporate the most effective manual therapy techniques, coupled with dry needling and neuromuscular training to bring about improved outcomes for cervical, scapulo-thoracic, cranio facial and upper extremity dysfunction • Perform accurate needle penetration based on neuromusculoskeletal anatomy and targeted patient outcomes • Demonstrate safe needling techniques and decision making as to tissue area selection, needle length and depth of needle penetration • Recognize the utility of Musculoskeletal Ultrasound for improving dry needling accuracy and the identification of pathological tissues
