Needling Joints



Presented by Susan Kohut
Date: Saturday 30 May
Venue: AUT, North Shore Campus, Northcote, Auckland


Acupuncture is very useful for modifying pain and range of motion. Needling myofascial tissue, such as needling acupuncture points (which are often muscle motor points and trigger points) is extremely useful for musculoskeletal conditions. However needling the joint capsule and associated joint can make a significant difference to pain and change of range of movement. Needling joints can be tricky, particularly in not introducing infectious agents into joints. This course will address needling major joints safely and effectively. It is a one-day course is to be run at the School of Physiotherapy, AUT Akoranga.

Pre-requisite for this course is 80 hours of formal acupuncture training.
