Integrated Dry Needling Course
Intramuscular Dry Needling (IDN) can be an effective and useful adjunct to an overall treatment program for our neuro-orthopaedic patients. This course is designed to cover dry needling techniques for the whole body for varied musculoskeletal conditions. Learning takes place over 4 weekend sessions (2 days 8 hours each weekend) and involves lectures, guided practical sessions, written and practical evaluation and clinical case reasoning pertaining to the application and integration of IDN to your caseload. The curriculum of this course meets the required competencies of the College of Physiotherapists of Ontario for a therapist to use dry needling in their practice and to roster for this skill set. The first two weekends of the course are held close together to establish a basic set of needling skills, and evaluation of those skills. The last two weekends are held approximately 6 months from the first two weekends to allow integration of the initial techniques into your practice before moving to more advanced points. Clinical Reasoning will be examined through all four weekends. Prior needling experience is not required, but is an asset. Note this course is only open to Physiotherapists.

A Spinal Manipulation Review Course For FCAMPT Therapists
Location: Toronto, Ontario
Date: TBD – February 2015
Cost: $500 plus HST ($565.00)
Instructors: Scott Whitmore and Lenerdene Levesque
This two-day course will sharpen the skills required for the successful practice of manipulation techniques. Scott and Lenerdene have developed a unique approach to teaching and facilitating manipulation techniques by focusing on the psychomotor skills used during manipulation of the spine. Participants will refine manipulation techniques and improve clinical decision-making through hands-on training and case-based learning. Recent evidence supporting the use of manipulation in daily practice will be reviewed and participants will be given the opportunity to suggest manipulative techniques they would like to review beyond the techniques presented in the course. This course is intended for FCAMPT therapists that have completed a certification program in spinal manipulation within Canada or another IFOMPT accredited program. Instructors will find the tips in this course a useful adjunct to their instruction of spinal manipulation.
