This 3 day seminar will provide the physical therapist with a thorough understanding of the history and current evidence regarding the use of Dry Needling in clinical practice. The seminar will build a foundation on which the attendee may then integrate Dry Needling into clinical physical therapy practice. This seminar is a lab intensive, hands-on class. Participants will safely handle needle manipulation and acquire motor skills necessary to perform a skilled needling session. Participants should come prepared to practice dry needling and also be prepared to play the part of the practice patient. Intramuscular Dry Needling Part I is the first seminar of a two part certification program divided into upper and lower quadrants.

Practical observation and testing occurs at the conclusion of each class (Part I & Part II) with a final written exam taking place after the completion of Part II. The testing is conducted in order to assure that the clinician attains a safe and effective level of clinical practice in DN techniques. **
