Most muscles of the lower limb will be addressed in this detailed workshop.

There is also a big section on Achilles dysfunction. 

The Workshop will be conducted by Dr. Paul Conneely who has been practicing dry and wet needling techniques for over 29 years. In that time he has successfully treated several thousand patients who have myofascial pain syndromes using these techniques. Dr. Conneely kept a spreadsheet that contained over 12000 muscle entries that he treated. The spreadsheet reveals that he has needled some 146 muscles of the body.

This technique is safe, easy to perform and rarely does not have a good to excellent outcome.

The two Workshops are divided along anatomical lines. The First in the Two-part series covers the muscles that produce dysfunction from the "Pelvis to the Toes". 

The second Workshop will cover those from the "Pelvis to the Nose" including the upper limbs. 

The Workshop will cover:  

- Anatomy crash update course.              

- Current Concepts in Pain. - Types of Pain. - How Trigger Points were discovered. - The theory behind Trigger Points. - The micro architecture of striated muscle. - Muscle activation. - How to detect Trigger Points.   - Their classical referral pattern.

- What needles to use. - How to use them. - How to prepare the skin. - How to deactivate the Trigger Point. -How to dispose of used needles. - The use of laser in Trigger Points. 

What to tell the patient in relation to the needling treatment. What might they expect or feel at the time of needling and afterwards.

How to spray and stretch the affected muscles. - How to heat the area after treatment.

Your expected outcome versus theirs. - Negative outcomes: The main negative outcome is haematoma. Methods of stopping this will be discussed. Haematoma formation is extremely rare. 

This is a full two day Workshop. There will be morning and afternoon teas and all day lollies!

A certificate of attendance and a receipt will be issued at the conclusion of the workshop.
