A Neuro-Functional Approach

This two-day advanced clinical applications course focuses on the complex patient and advanced strategies when other treatments have not worked.  This course reviews neuroanatomy and neurophysiology and how to apply it into dry needling and clinical practice for the experienced needler who has been trained in the past but wants to advance their skills to where modern dry needling has progressed.  These techniques are perfect for the patient with chronic pain or signs of sensitization, and also for the athletic population who require a practitioner to get them past the ‘extra mile’.  The Advanced Course is for those who want to advance their current clinical acumen, progressing from the foundation of our Functional Dry Needling series and adding specific techniques targeting the peripheral joints and the TMJ.  This course is a culmination of all foundational and clinical applications content learned with KinetaCore.  Come prepared to think and practice like never before!
