Course Description: Neuromodulation for Dry Needling

DN is now quite popular with many physical therapy groups today, however, one significant problem in practice is the insertion of needles into a hypertonic patient, which can lead to injury and litigation. With the etiology of trigger point (TP) formation, myofascial pain syndromes and Central Sensitization of pain manifestation not completely understood or supported in science, the practicing DN therapist may be at a loss on how to avoid this problem.

Solution: Recent physician-based research now points to source of chronic musculoskeletal pain (Myofascial Pain Syndrome -MPS), and trigger point activation as a result of prolonged sympathetic activation, which is also called stress (Learn More). Designed for short term survival, “upregulation” or “persistent tone in the sympathetic system” or “stress” is directly related to hypersensitivity, hypertonic muscles and body-wide tender trigger points, which are counter-productive for Dry Needling patients and practitioners. The only scientific solution to reduce stress is to neuromodulate!

Integrate Neuromodulation in your Dry Needling Practice

Neuromodulation is the art of suppressing sympathetic tension (stress) in order to activate parasympathetic vagal tone (HF) and balance (or neuromodulate) the sympathetic/parasympathetic nervous systems (as measured in Heart Rate Variability-HRV). Neuromodulating your patients is extremely important in dry needling, as success or failure with outcomes depends on it.

This webinar will introduce key macro and micro parasympathetic points, published in peer-review science, for immediate sympathetic stress reduction & neuromodulation. Integrating these points prior to (or during) DN will reduce muscle tone and activate the vagal healing response to help eliminate adverse patients responses.
