Neurologic Dry Needling for Cranio-Cervical Pain & Dysfunction

Course Description: Neurologic Dry Needling for Cranio-Cervical Pain & Dysfunction is an advanced level training program designed for clinicians that have prior dry needling training and are utilizing it clinically. This course will develop the knowledge and clinical skills required to safely and effectively diagnose and treat painful neuromuscular conditions in the cranial, facial and cervical regions. This course details the musculoskeletal and neuroanatomical relationships, both peripheral and central, that exist between the regions. The role of inflammation (neurogenic) in the production of pain and dysfunction is described and discussed. This course is primarily lab-based focusing on clinical decision-making and improving treatment outcomes in this challenging patient population. The clinical rationale for treating both the cervical and cranial regions concurrently is explained to maximize treatment effect. Case examples of common clinical conditions are discussed and treatment plans are practiced.


Speaker: Dr. Frank Gargano PT, DPT, OCS, CIDN, MCTA, CWE - President / Instructor


Course Objectives:

Course participants upon completion will be able to:


  • Independently evaluate musculoskeletal dysfunction relating to cranio-cervical conditions.

  • Independently evaluate peripheral nerve dysfunctions relating to a given cranio-cervical condition.

  • Independently identify a minimum of three peripheral cranio-cervical neuro-trigger points in a given case study.

  • Independently select proper prevention and management strategies of adverse responses to dry needling based on OSHA requirements during case study presentations.

  • Correctly defend the IDN system for treatment of neuromusculoskeletal pain based on the unique neurology and physiology of neuro-trigger points.

  • Independently integrate Neurologic Dry Needling into a patient's plan of care with relation to current clinical guidelines.
