IDN Foundation Dry Needling Course is organized by Integrative Dry Needling Institute LLC (IDN) and will be held from Aug 21 - 23, 2020 at Vanderbilt Orthopaedics Nashville Rehab Services, Nashville, Tennessee, United States of America. Accreditation: IDN is an approved provider through the Federation of State Board of Physical Therapy (FSBPT). • IDN Foundation course is approved for 27 CE hours, 32 CCU’s and 2.7 CEU’s through FSBPT. • IDN Advanced course is approved for 27 CE hours, 28 CCU’s and 2.7 CEU’s through FSBPT. • IDN Cranio-Cervical course is approved for 8 CE hours, 8 CCU’s and 0.8 CEU’s through FSBPT. Description: The purpose of the Neurologic Dry Needling for Pain Management and Sports Rehabilitation Course is to obtain knowledge and clinical skills necessary to diagnose and treat soft tissue pain and dysfunction using the Integrative Dry Needling (IDN) concept. This 27-hour applied-learning course combines interactive lectures and practical hands-on labs. Students participate in several practical sessions, which are intended to provide feedback to students regarding their comprehension of key concepts and techniques. These practical lab sessions enable students to critically self-evaluate if additional instruction or self- study is needed for clinical competency. Neurologic Dry Needling for Pain Management and Sports Rehabilitation is the culmination of the work and clinical experience of Dr. Yun-tao Ma and Dr. Frank Gargano DPT. The Integrative Dry Needling (IDN) training program will develop the knowledge and clinical skills required to effectively diagnose and treat painful neuromuscular conditions. IDN teaches you to treat the body systemically; we do not divide the body into upper and lower halves requiring you to take 2 courses before you can treat the entire body. Our system is built on the foundation of Neurological Dry Needling that provides a logical and systematic process for addressing pain and dysfunction. As a result, course participants develop an adaptable clinical procedure allowing immediate integration of dry needling into clinical practice. Course Content: The Integrative Dry Needling Foundation Course for Pain Management and Sports Rehabilitation covers: • Dry needling techniques- (80% of the needling technique is virtually pain-free) • Detailed, tried and tested needling safety techniques and contraindications for dry needling therapy to avoid human error in clinical practice. • Adaptable dry needling system that easily adapts to clinical practice and to the specific needs of each patient. • Systemic Homeostatic trigger point concept (physiological and biomechanical approach). • Paraspinal trigger point concept (neurosegmental and dermatomal approach). • Symptomatic trigger point concept (neuromyofascial pain in the head, neck, shoulder, upper limbs, thoracic, lumbar, hip and lower limbs). Learning Objectives: • Independently identify each of the three types of trigger points (homeostatic, paravertebral and symptomatic) in a given case study. • Integrate the physiological mechanisms of needling when developing a treatment plan for a given musculoskeletal condition. • Discuss the prevention and management of adverse responses to dry needling based on OSHA requirements with 100% accuracy during case study. • Independently apply dry needling treatment safely into musculoskeletal trigger points during lab sessions. • Independently evaluate soft tissue dysfunctions relating to a given musculoskeletal condition and pain. • Correctly defend the IDN system for treatment of musculoskeletal pain based on the unique neurology and physiology of neuro-trigger points. • Independently discuss integrating the IDN system into the participant’s physical therapy practice in relation to current clinical, legislative and billing barriers.

Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation in Orthopedic Patients is organized by Therapy Network Seminars (TNS) and will be held from Sep 19 - 20, 2020 at Vanderbilt University Medical Center East, Nashville, Tennessee, United States of America. Target Audience: This course is intended for PTs, PTAs, OTs, OTAs and ATs Educational Credit: A certificate of attendance for 15 Contact Hourswill be awarded to each participant. All Therapy Network Seminars are pre‐approved for CEUs in the state where the course is conducted when required for PT, OT, ATs & Assistants. Seminar Description: This two-day, evidenced based, laboratory intensive course will focus on teaching a historically useful manual therapy technique, Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation (PNF). The course introduces PNF as a manual therapy and exercise intervention technique to address common pathologies of both upper and lower extremities. The course is intended to provide the clinician with the skill to rehabilitate the patient with a hands-on, integrative approach. This will be accomplished through a combination of lecture, demonstration, and significant lab time. The structured sessions are aimed at emphasizing important concepts in neurophysiology and motor learning to improve neuromuscular control in orthopedic patients. Mastery of these techniques requires a solid foundation in basic anatomy and the pathomechanics of the shoulder and hip. Attendees will learn useful terminology, basic procedures, and techniques. Participants will learn to successfully apply PNF techniques in a manner that each patient-centered session is both therapeutic intervention and assessment or evaluation. The clinician will learn to develop and sequence a dynamic treatment plan incorporating PNF techniques that can be used for conservative and post-operative approaches. Current clinical evidence supports the combination of these treatments when properly performed and prescribed by a skilled clinician. Strategies for documentation and coding will also be covered. Objectives: • Develop an understanding of the PNF concept and the neurophysiology behind the PNF principles • Understand foundational principles of exercise and physiological adaptation. Correctly explain and differentiate motor learning, strength, power, hypertrophy, and endurance • Demonstrate clinical skills to determine a patient’s neuromuscular ability and select appropriate PNF therapy interventions based on understanding of anatomy and pathology in conjunction with patient responses • Perform basic PNF manual therapy techniques to facilitate neuromuscular control and improve patient recovery • Articulate appropriate PNF terms for documentation and CPT coding for charges Additional details will be posted as soon as information is available.
