Dry needling is an organized system that uses modern understanding of neuroanatomy, pain referral patterns, and the musculoskeletal system combined with needling trigger points and fascia to treat myofascial pain and dysfunction. Dry Needling also improves performance and speeds up healing.
Dry needling is one of the most requested techniques by prospective patients. Adding dry needling to your clinical repertoire will provide you with a highly effective tool in treating MSK conditions for better results and more patient referrals.
Dry needling is best taught by someone with thousands of hours in needling and years of experience. Our seminars are taught by Dr. Jamie Hampton, DAOM. Dr. Hampton has been using trigger point dry needling in her practice since 2006, specializing in complex, recalcitrant orthopedic conditions. She focuses on teaching dry needling from a clinical, experiential position with emphasis on application, which means students can return to their clinics and put the skills into practice right away, with confidence.
