Event description
This 4hr dry needling workshop is designed to refresh and extend knowledge. It focuses on clinical reasoning of technique and application.

About this Event

A little about your presenter

As a clinical educator and clinician with over 10 years’ experience, Nathan is a highly skilled practitioner. Over the years he has learnt dry needling from over 10 different instructors and has a wealth of knowledge to share. He combines his skills as both and Accredited Exercise Physiologist and Myotherapist and offers a unique approach to manual therapy, movement and exercise.

Nathan takes a pragmatic approach to clinical reasoning treatment applications. This gives participants opportunities to discuss case specific treatment applications. Both the opportunity to observe demonstrations and practice new techniques is provided.

WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT FROM THIS WORKSHOP

These 4hour dry needling workshops are practical, hands on sessions providing the opportunity to both refresh and extend their knowledge of needling techniques and clinical reasoning and offer attendees confidence in advancing their skills in dry needling to deepen their knowledge of needling techniques, sharpen the thought process underpinning their choice of technique and increase confidence in needling the more "challenging" of 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 skilled guidance of Nathan McKeown.

In this workshop participants will investigate approaching muscles from different angles and using different body positions for the client, sharpen the thought process underpinning their choice of technique and increase confidence in needling. They will focus on providing thorough anatomical and clinical reasoning to firstly justify and then apply the skills of myofascial dry needling under the skilled guidance of Nathan McKeown.

Online theory will be provided to registrants prior to the event day where Nathan will present an update on various dry needling research and approaches using projector guidelines and a workbook.

The rest of the day will be 100% hands-on with each participant working in small groups 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, 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 refresh their dry needling technique, or those keen to refine their skills in dry needling the more complicated areas. Also a great opportunity for 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
  • Dry needling and the pregnant client
  • How to avoid causing, and also recognising a pneumothorax
  • Adapt your needling technique to your patient and their needs

Attendees are advised to bring their own lunch or may choose from the number of cafes in the surrounding area. Face masks must be worn on the day and any exceptions must be approved by Myotherapy Association prior to the workshop.
