DRY NEEDLING TECHNIQUES. "Butt to Toes"

Those that can participate include:- Physiotherapists -Doctors - Chiropractors - Osteopaths- Myotherapists- Podiatrists.

Contact: Dr. Paul Conneely on musmed@ihug.com.au  

The Workshop will be conducted by Dr. Paul Conneely who has been practicing dry and wet needling techniques for over 26 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 133 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 "Butt to the Toes". 

The second Workshop will cover those from the "Butt 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. 

All the muscles of the lower limb are addressed. A special section on the treatment of Achilles tendinitis is included.

This is a full hands-on Workshop. There will be all day coffee, tea, biscuits and sweets.

The Workshop will include detailed notes over 110 pages.
At the conclusion of the Workshop a receipt and certificate of attendance will be issued.
