A UK 1st
For the 1st time in the UK we are proud to present Mr Gahl Sela and his 2 day Dry needling course for Pelvic Health Dysfunction to include post natal conditions, pelvic floor under & over activity, abdominal trauma & scarring and complex male & female pelvic pain.
Participants will acquire the dry needling skills necessary to treat pelvic and pelvic floor dysfunction, pelvic pain, musculoskeletal pain and dysfunction safely and effectively within a bio-psycho-social paradigm.
The full course comprises of a practical component, a self-study component, and an anatomy component. The practical component is 2 days long. There are 4 academic journal articles which are for pre-course reading (self study). Each day consists of a combination of didactic, interactive lectures (using a combination of PowerPoint type presentations with white-board embellishments where required) and supervised practical sessions where the technique to be learned is first demonstrated to the class, and the class then pairs off to practice. Accurate practicing is ensured by close supervision of the lecturer and the trained assistant/s. Video demonstrations of the techniques are also played back during the course.
During the course, participants have breakaway groups to problem solve “paper patient” cases and physically demonstrate the dry needling therapy of such a patient (role play) to their classmates who then review the clinical reasoning and safety and efficacy of the actual techniques performed.
Who is this course suitable for :
The course is suitable for Physiotherapists & other clinicians who are already trained in the use of acupuncture. It is aimed at Physiotherapists & other clinicians who have an interest in pelvic health and post natal clinical practice who want to add dry needling to their scope of practice in these specialist clinical areas.
