IAR offers a uniquely superior dry needling course that is truly unmatched in the market. This course covers in depth the major theoretical models of dry needling including the mechanical trigger point, spinal radiculopathy, and biomedical systemic models. The course details how each model can be individually adapted to the different pain states and soft tissue pathologies that present in the sports and orthopedic populations. The IAR dry needling course will also expose the clinician to various manual therapy techniques, including joint mobilization, soft tissue mobilization, and neural tissue mobilization, and how to effectively integrate these interventions within the realm of dry needling to truly enhance tissue regeneration and athletic performance. Upon completion of the course, the clinician will possess an extremely comprehensive intervention strategy that combines dry needling, manual therapy, and exercise prescription into an incomparable treatment model.
All clinicians should be familiar with their state's current legislation on dry needling intervention prior to participating in the course.

"IAR's Dry Needling course was the best DN course I have taken! This course covered so much information in one weekend than other needling courses I've taken. It exceeded my expectations in expanding my treatment toolbox, and I was able to easily implement the techniques immediately into my patient care. The course is extremely well run and the learning material is extremely useful. Toko has a great depth of knowledge and clinical experience to offer any clinician wanting to work with the sports population whether with DN or manual therapy."
