    Description

    The DN-1 Foundations I course features a brief introduction to the history of dry needling, trigger points and myofascial pain, the OSHA Blood Borne Pathogen Standards within the context of dry needling, and an introduction to relevant pain sciences.

    Many muscles commonly addressed in clinical practice are included, such as the infraspinatus, upper trapezius, deltoid, sternocleidomastoid, triceps, biceps, brachialis, levator scapulae (partially), the latissimus dorsi (partially), the subscapularis (partially), brachioradialis, the wrist extensors, the supinator and anconeus, the quadratus lumborum, psoas major, lumbar iliocostalis, the gluteal muscles (minimus, medius, and maximus), the hip adductor muscles, the quadriceps and hamstrings, and gastrocnemius and soleus muscles.

    Students will review the anatomy, function, and dry needling techniques for each muscle.

    Pre-Course videos will be provided after registration. You can register for the DN-1 Webinar If you prefer to review the presentations in a live webinar.

    Dry Needling 1: Foundations I is the first course in a 3 course series offered by Myopain Seminars to attain certification as a Certified Myofascial Trigger Point Therapist - Dry Needling (CMTPT/DN).

    A minimum score of 70% on a multiple choice quiz plus demonstrated muscle competency are required to pass this course. 

    * Maryland PT's - If you are a physical therapist practicing in Maryland, you will need 40 theoretical hours and 40 practical training hours before you complete your application to use Dry Needling to the Maryland Board of Physical Therapy Examiners. The Maryland Board of Physical Therapy Examiners requires “in person … face-to-face session; or in real time through electronic means that allow for simultaneous interaction between the instructor and the participants.”  When you have completed Dry Needling 1, 2 & 3 with Myopain Seminars, you will be short 6.25 hours of theory. (You will have met the 40 hour practical requirement) Myopain Seminars offers webinars every other month to meet this theoretical requirement, although you can also take another approved dry needling course to meet the hours. We offer three different webinars that you can take at any time and in any order. We do recommend that you wait until you have completed the live courses! You must meet the minimum requirements, complete the application, submit it and be approved before you will be eligible to use dry needling in Maryland. To learn more about Dry Needling in Maryland click here: Maryland Regulations Title 10.

    *Georgia PT's - This course provides one hour of OSHA Blood Borne Pathogens training. This will be reflected on certificates for Georgia DN1 Participant or upon request.
