Description

Every year, about 200 new research studies, systematic reviews and meta-analyses, literature reviews, and case reports are published in the scientific literature. For the clinician, these many papers make it nearly impossible to keep up with the literature. 

In this online review, Jan Dommerholt explores the most pertinent literature on myofascial pain and dry needling. The review will include studies on the mechanisms of myofascial pain, clinical applications, and new uses of dry needling, for example, for neurologic conditions (i.e., spasticity), performance enhancement, scar tissue and fascial adhesions, and tendinopathies. 

At the end of the webinar, students will be fully up-to-date on the latest developments in the scientific myofascial pain and dry needling literature up to September  2021.
