Dry Needling 1: Foundations 1

Course Description: The DN-1 Foundations I course features a brief introduction to the history of dry needling, trigger points and myofascial pain, the OSHA Blood Borne Pathogen Standards within the context of dry needling, and an introduction to relevant pain sciences.

Many muscles commonly addressed in clinical practice are included, such as the infraspinatus, upper trapezius, deltoid, sternocleidomastoid, triceps, biceps, brachialis, levator scapulae (partially), the latissimus dorsi (partially), the subscapularis (partially), brachioradialis, the wrist extensors, the supinator and anconeus, the quadratus lumborum, psoas major, lumbar iliocostalis, the gluteal muscles (minimus, medius, and maximus), the hip adductor muscles, the quadriceps and hamstrings, and gastrocnemius and soleus muscles.

Students will review the anatomy, function, and dry needling techniques for each muscle.
