Master Dry Needling                                         Registration – $995
Approved for 1.6 CEUs (16 contact hours)     October 29-30, 2022

This course is a two-day course to utilize dry needling of the pelvic floor in clinical practice and is open to physical therapists, occupational therapists, chiropractors, physicians, physician’s assistants, nurse practitioners, nurses, athletic trainers, and physical therapist assistant/occupational therapist assistant (per each state’s written guidelines). 

Master Dry Needling of the Pelvis is a lab intensive on-site course designed to instruct participants in the application of dry needling to female and male pelvic musculature and associated neuroanatomical structures including the thoracolumbar spine, abdomen, pelvis and hip joint complex.  This course will provide a comprehensive review of anatomy, practice hands-on examination techniques and discuss clinical reasoning related to disorders of the pelvic region. This course is a revolutionary approach to treating patients with pelvic dysfunction commonly associated with pelvic pain, low back pain, incontinence, voiding dysfunction and/or sexual pain or dysfunction.  Dry needling will assist with the restoration of muscle function, improve proprioception, reduce and eliminate pain, and normalize tissue sensitivity to optimize patients’ function and quality of life.  

This course builds from the foundation of Master Dry Needling Level I and as such, this course, or an equivalent introductory dry needling course, will be required prior to registering for Pelvic Dry Needling.  

Safety and the proper handling of potential blood borne pathogens associated with DN applications will be emphasized. The course is designed to place heavy emphasis on practical, hands-on practice.  

Participants will review clinical anatomy and practice DN treatment of each tissue and region covered throughout the course.  Each attendee will be expected to sign a waiver and practice DN on a lab partner. 

NOTE: This course does not utilize needling of the internal pelvic floor.   

Pregnant females are not allowed to participate in the course as all attendees are expected to needle lab partners.
