Like the advanced course for the upper body, the advanced course for the lower body requires pre-requisite introductory training to attend.
Again, the major goal is to expand on the clinical reasoning process behind the use of western acupuncture and dry needling to treat common lower body conditions. Often therapists get used to using needling ‘recipes’ in the clinical setting, however our emphasis is to teach you how to make sound clinical judgments on the needling approach that is best suited to address your clinical findings.
The structure of the Advanced Course includes evidenced based updates on various conditions as well as addressing differential diagnosis and clinical reasoning in regard to needling techniques in the lumbopelvic and lower limb regions. Again, a very practical course, we teach advanced techniques around the thoracolumbar region, pelvis and lower limbs with an emphasis on safety and efficacy.
The advanced level of dry needling and western segmental acupuncture covered is a beneficial adjunct to musculoskeletal treatment and will enable you to further utilise clinically significant physiological effects that occur with various types of needle penetration.
