Dry Needling for Pain Management

December 28, 2012
Dec. 27,  Woodstock, Ont. – RMTs are invited to attend “Functional Integrated Needling – A Biomedical Approach” seminars in 2013.  Courses are eligible for CEUs – please check with your local jurisdiction for details.

Dry Needling, also known as intramuscular therapy, is the use of solid filiform needles for the treatment of musclo-skeletal pain and soft tissue dysfunction. The insertion of needles into specific targets can help increase local blood flow to tissue and relax muscle tension. The needles also result in endorphin release, the body’s natural pain relieving chemicals. Dry Needling is a very effective modality in treating a variety of painful disorders, both acute and chronic.

Dr. Scappaticci – a chiropractor and founder of the FIT Institute in Ontario -  in association with Dr. Yun-tao Ma, the founder of the American Dry Needling Institute, has developed a unique, contemporary pain management Dry Needling System in which health care providers, including RMTs, can train. Participation in this training will allow health care providers, without prior needling experience, to be able to safely and confidently insert needles for management of painful MSK conditions in all regions of the body.

The technique takes the best of various dry needling modalities and combines them with key lessons and findings derived by Dr. Scappaticci and Dr. Yun-tao Ma’s combined 60 years of clinical and research experience in the management and treatment of chronic pain and sports injuries.

The purpose of this session is to develop knowledge and clinical skill used to treat soft tissue pain and dysfunction using dry needling. It is a 25-hour intensive, classroom-based practical course including several mastery evaluation sessions, which are intended to provide feedback to students regarding their mastery of key concepts and techniques. These mastery evaluations sessions allow students and the instructors to identify what additional instruction might be required before the final qualifying exam.
