Myopain Seminars is pleased to present a new and unique Advanced Dry Needling Dissection course. The course will be taught by Drs. Jan Dommerholt and Tracey Adler, assisted by other Myopain Seminars faculty, at the Institute for Anatomical Research in Colorado Springs, CO.
The course will combine an in-depth review of challenging dry needling techniques combined with detailed clinical anatomical and dissection studies presented in the context of dry needling. We will challenge common belief systems about anatomy, i.e., is it possible to differentiate the serratus posterior superior muscle and the rhomboid muscles, considering that Travell and Simons described distinctively different referred pain patterns?
How about the pyramidalis muscle in relation to the rectus abdominis muscle? What is the correct dry needling approach for the multidifi muscles? Based on anatomy, how can one best prevent causing a subdural hematoma, or a pneumothorax? Is it safe to needle the posterior tibialis, longus colli, or the psoas major muscles?
We will explore the relationship between muscles and fascia in different areas of the body, and consider the clinical implications of these anatomical relationships. Participants will explore various fascial winding and scar tissue needling techniques both on each other, but also on different tissues of the donor bodies.
The Institute for Anatomical Research is focused on inspiring the development of advanced therapies and treatment options to improve the quality of life through the study of anatomy from real cadavers. During the course, specific portion of cadavers will be dissected again in the context of dry needling.
Group size is limited to 24 participants.
Pre-requisites: Certification in Dry Needling by any course provider.......
