    Description

    The DN-3 Advanced course features an in-depth study of the hand muscles, several lower extremity and foot muscles, the craniofacial and craniomandibular muscles, the scalenes and the longus colli muscles. Students will review the anatomy, function, and dry needling techniques for each muscle.

    The Advanced dry needling course will bring the clinician to the highest level of clinical proficiency in the management of patients with myofascial pain.

    Dry Needling 3: Advanced is the third course in a three-course series by Myopain Seminars to attain certification as a Certified Myofascial Trigger Point Therapist - Dry Needling (CMTPT/DN). The third day of this course includes a comprehensive theoretical and practical examination. To pass, students must achieve 70% on a multiple-choice exam plus demonstrate competency in dry needling. Physical therapists licensed in Tennessee must achieve a passing score of 80%. The instructor-student ratio is minimally 1:10 and more examiners are brought in to assist with the practical examination.

    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 6.75 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.
