Course Title: Foundations in Dry Needling for Orthopedic Rehab and Sport Performance (SFDN1)

Presenter: Erik Marsh, MS, ATC, SFDN

Sponsor: Structure & Function Education

CCUs: 27 CCUs

July 19-21, 2024, Houston, TX

Course Description: In the 27-hour lab-based course, the clinician will learn a diagnosis-focused approach to dry needling. The clinician will learn fundamental skills necessary for safe and proper needle insertion and removal, as well as effective strategies to manage commonly encountered pathologies in orthopedic and sport rehabilitation. Safety considerations are emphasized. Current science and research will be presented, along with a vast amount of clinical experience and pearls, allowing immediate application of dry needling into the clinicians' professional practice. The use of intramuscular electrical stimulation will also be discussed, demonstrated and practiced in class.

"What can a Dry Needling Course do for my practice?" Dry Needling is the insertion of fine filament needles in the body, specifically neuromuscular tissue. Research is still looking at how dry needling works in both acute and chronic situations. Traditional acupuncture is rooted in eastern philosophy while dry needling is rooted in western medicine. Simple muscle tightness, strains and sprains, an overworked body needing recovery, muscle activation, swelling reduction and pain modulation are all clinical examples for the use of dry needling. Our courses aim to empower practitioners - especially those who work with athletes - to provide the most efficient treatment to their patients.

Course Title: Therapeutic Evaluation & Treatment of Toe Walking (Pediatric Equinus Gait)

Presenter: Liesa M. Ritchie-Persaud, PT, DPT, PCS

Sponsor: Know to Change

CCUs: 14

Dates: April 13 & 14, 2024

Location: Aledo, TX

Course Description: The course addresses therapeutic evaluation & treatment of pediatric equines gait (toe walking). It is common for the practitioner to feel lost when a child presents with a toe walking gait pattern. Both evaluation and treatment of these children are often frustrating for all involved and frequently result in inaccurate evaluation with ineffective intervention and poor achievement of results. Long term results are rarely achieved with either resultant surgical intervention and/or and reoccurrence of the problem. However, establishing a specific approach to treating this type of patient can be made less frustrating and more rewarding by asking the right questions and forming a deliberate approach. 

This course is excellent for alleviating a chaotic approach to the treatment of pediatric toe walking. Liesa teaches practitioners to assess toe walking through a holistic view of the child, including biomechanics & sensory processing, to develop a systematic approach and devise an effective treatment plan.

Through organized assessment, specific data will be used to direct the clinician to potential etiologies. Causes and appropriate intervention strategies are identified in order to utilize a systematic approach to developing an effective treatment plan.

This course will change how you think about & treat children with equinus gait!
