Course Details

 

Run by SELECT PHYSIO

Neuromuscular dryneedling is based on the current understanding of neurophysiology and functional anatomy. It therefore builds on health professionals existing medical knowledge.

We continue our successful training of health practitioners who look after: AFL, basketball, Cycling, Cricket, Rugby, Hockey, Skiing, Swimming, Tennis, Golf and other elite athletes.

We also teach practitioners who work in pain clinics, and for practitioners that manage aches & pains in the general population.

To date we have successfully trained over 3000 practitioners.

How many CPD points do I get for the courses?
16 points (for the 2 days - plus any pre reading you do) as our course meets the AHPRA requirements.

The lecture series run by Dry Needling Courses allows for quick progress. An initial two day course is sufficient to get you started.
