The DN-2 Foundations II course builds on the knowledge and skills of the DN-1 course. Students will be introduced to the clinical aspects of myofascial pain, peripheral and central sensitization, the etiology and scientific basis of myofascial pain and dry needling.

Many muscles commonly addressed in clinical practice are included, such the posterior cervical muscles, the oblique capitis inferior, the cervical and thoracic and lumbar multifidi, levator scapula (partially), the latissimus dorsi (partially), supraspinatus, teres major and minor, pectoralis major (partially), pectoralis minor, the coracobrachialis, pronator teres, wrist flexors, oblique abdominal muscles and rectus abdominus, the lumbar paraspinals, the deep hip rotators, the lower and middle trapezius, the serratus anterior, and the rhomboids muscles. Students will also be introduced to the current scientific basis for dry needling for scar tissue, fascial adhesions, enthesopathies, and tendinopathies.

Note: The pelvic floor muscles are no longer part of the DN-2 course, as Myopain Seminars will soon launch a new Pelvic Pain Dry Needling course.

Students will review the anatomy, function, and dry needling techniques for each muscle.
