The Advanced Dry Needling course for the Upper Half of the Body aims to teach course participants how to needle myofascial components from T7 upward. This is a very practical course, including the teaching of advanced techniques around the scapulothoracic region, shoulder, upper limbs and neck with particular emphasis on safety and efficacy. One of the major goals is for participants to integrate the use of dry needling into their clinical reasoning process and their clinical approach to treat common (and not so common) upper body conditions.
Case studies will be discussed to further enhance the clinical reasoning behind the use of dry needling, and its integration with other physiotherapy skill sets, such as manual therapy, muscle balancing, exercise prescription and postural advice.
Attendance requires completion of one of the following courses: PAANZ Foundation Dry Needling Course, APA Introductory Segmental and Dry Needling Course, Post-Graduate Western Acupuncture qualification from AUT or Otago. If you have undertaken dry needling training from another provider please contact the PAANZ administrator to see if it qualifies as a pre-requisite for the Advanced Course.
