You have questions? We have the answers!

Check out some of the most commonly asked questions.

Do I have to take 2 courses to be able to treat the entire body?

No! We do not require you to attend and pay for an Upper then Lower course where you are limited in only treating those specific muscles or areas. Because we train you in our systemic model you will be able to treat the majority of neuromuscular conditions from head to toe after our Foundation course.

Is your dry needling method different than others in the market?

While we respect all needling theories and concepts, we are the creators of Neurologic Dry Needling and have literally written the book on it. Do your research on where the many “new educators” have acquired their information.  Your can only learn Neurologic Dry Needling from the IDN Institute, the innovators in dry needling education and treatment!

Do I need to take an IDN course before taking one of the specialty courses?

No, as long as you have prior dry needling training (proof of attendance required) you are able to attend our specialty courses: Diagnostic US for Tendinopathy, Advanced Integration of the Pelvic, Lumbar, Hip and Abdominal regions and Neurologic Dry Needling for Craniocervical pain and dysfunction.

Do you only target specific muscles?

No, IDN courses DO NOT focus only on targeting a specific muscle (myofascial TrP) but address neuromusculoskeletal dysfunction (peripheral nerve mapping) as an interrelated systemic issue. IDN courses are the evolution of treating the system and not just the points.

Is IDN appropriate for my profession?

Our systemic model offers a uniquely adaptable approach so that all healthcare professionals, whether from pain management, orthopedics,  sports, neuro rehab, occupational and preventative care can easily integrate IDN into their clinical practice.

If I had prior DN training can I just skip the Foundation course and attend your Advanced Course?

No, completion of the foundation course is required. IDN’s practical and clinical concepts are significantly different than other DN educators, that it is important to complete the full training.  To help out we will provide you a $500 discount toward your  Foundation course tuition, just send us your certificate of attendance from the prior training by clicking the “Get in Touch” menu button. You will not be disappointed!
