Description

A little about your presenter

Nathan is a highly experience Clinical Myotherapist who operates and practices out of a successful allied health clinic on the Bellarine Peninsula. His highly developed skills in Clinical Myotherapy and dry needling was recognised by Southern School of Natural Therapies in Melbourne where he was asked to teach their students. He now lectures part time in dry needling, oversees the student clinic and has previously taught their pain neuroscience subject.

What can I expect to gain from this workshop?

These half day advanced dry needling workshops are practical, hands on sessions aiming to deepen your knowledge of needling techniques, sharpen the thought process underpinning your choice of technique and increase your confidence in needling the more "challenging" of trigger point (TrP) locations. They will focus on providing thorough anatomical and clinical reasoning to firstly justify and then apply the skills of myofascial dry needling under the guidance of Nathan Ulph, Clinical Myotherapist and SSNT Educator.

The first hour will be spent as an informal tutorial/discussion. This will look to firstly understand what each participant wants from the workshop and establish the groups skill level and experience. Nathan will present an update on various dry needling research and explore ways in which your needling approach may be individualised to suit the needs of the patient.

The rest of the day, apart from a short break, will be 100% hands-on with each participant working with a partner to dry needle muscles of their choice. The full colour illustrated workbook, will be emailed to all participants to be viewed on their choice of devices or printed for the day (please be advised an additional $5 is billed for participants requesting a printed manual), providing common trigger point locations and needle depths, angles, safety considerations/checklist, indications and contraindications for DN applications.

This workshop is best suited to attendees that are looking to refine their skills in dry needling more complicated areas, new graduates looking to 'sharpen' their skills and increase confidence with using DN in clinical environments and anyone else who simply wants to get amongst their peers and consolidate their skills from a highly experience educator and their colleagues.

You will learn or refresh how to:

  • Approach trigger points, locations and variations
  • Use variations on needle insertion and withdrawal
  • Manipulate the needle and how long to leave the needle in
  • Needling cautions, contraindications and needle directions for higher risk muscles
  • Endangerment sites
  • Adapt your needling technique to your patient and their needs
  • Explaining to your patient benefits and desired outcomes for DN
