Course description – LIMITED SEATING

The ON-Point Dry Needling (OPDN) program is 20-hour program, (5 hrs. on line, 15 hrs. live lab) based primarily on the Myofascial Pain Syndrome model that prepares the practitioner to start needling on Monday morning. This program provides the practitioner the knowledge, skill and tools to bring the practice to a new level of patient care and pain management. ON-Point Dry Needling provides all the preliminary steps necessary to make certain the patient is a candidate for this procedure, and at the same time instills confidence for the clinician to makes the right needle selection with proper needle insertion into the selected muscle/fascia.

OPDN Registration Form

I had a persistent discomfort in my left upper abdominal area for several months and so my primary care sent me to a specialist who ran the gamete on me with testing,; MRI, endoscopy Ultrasound and at the end of the day it was a hands up we don’t know. I was seeing Dr. Merrick for acupuncture and was telling him about it and after a little probing he suggested dry needling. I can’t wait to go back to my primary care doc and the specialist. Pain is gone.
