On Saturday November 1st, I was very pleased to run the second in a series of Medical Acupuncture (with the integration of Dry Needling) courses in the management of a variety of regional conditions. This course focussed on the use of needling techniques in managing knee pain and dysfunction.
The aim of the course was once again to provide attendees with a range of needling techniques which can be effectively and safely applied in practice the following week. To allow for a practical emphasis, pre - course theory modules were completed online by the participants. These included a safety review, mechanism review, principles of point selection as well as conditions and patient suitable for medical acupuncture treatment.
We started the day with a review of the pre-course material and then went on to a clinical overview of the knee, followed by a rapid assessment relevant to the medical acupuncture practitioner.
