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

In this review, Jan Dommerholt will explore 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 course, students will be fully up-to-date on the latest developments in the scientific myofascial pain and dry needling literature.

For Maryland-licensed physical therapists: we fully anticipate that this course will count towards the live theoretical lectures leading to getting qualified for dry needling by the Maryland Board of Physical Therapy Examiners.

A link for remote access will be provided the week before the course.

The course will be delivered live at Johns Hopkins University and streamed live for remote access.
