ODNS teaches an integrated approach to Trigger point needling and pathology, providing the student with a thorough understanding of the MTrP and how it is affected by Dry Needling.

ODNS courses are all strongly practical in nature with good participant – facilitator ratios and are supported by a comprehensive manual.

We design courses to suit international conditions.

Our course is the premiere HPCSA Accredited dry needling course for physiotherapists (since 2005). More physiotherapists in Africa and the Middle East have trained with us than with any other dry needling educator.

Level 1 -Theory: Introduction to Dry Needling
1. Essential neurophyisology
2. Safety, contra-indications and precautions
3. History of the development of Dry Needling
4. Ethical aspects of Dry Needling
5. Practical sessions:
1. Gluteal area
2. Lumbar spine
3. Thoracic spine
4. Cervical Spine
5. Rotator cuff
6. Scapular muscles
7. Thigh
8. Calf

Self study component: Participants are encouraged to write up a series of abbreviated case reports for review by the clinical assistants. This encourages reflective practice and is offered free of charge to existing course participants.

Anatomy: Accurate anatomical knowledge is the cornerstone of any physical therapy treatment. We support this by offering a one day Anatomy module hosted by Anatomists and our lecturers at local Medical Schools. These modules are assessed independently of the practical needling modules.
