Musculoskeletal segmental and dry needling for physios

This foundation course taught by Trevor Montgomery is suitable for all physiotherapists wishing to expand their clinical reasoning and treatment skill sets with the use of dry needling. The course has a large practical component with particular emphasis on safe needling practice as set out in the latest safety guidelines.

The course is designed to help practitioners integrate dry needling into their clinical approach with a view to addressing the underlying causes of some of the more common clinical presentations we treat. Having taught over 120 introductory and advanced courses for AUT, PAANZ and the APA over the last 9 years, Trevor brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to his teaching in this specialty area. The theoretical content is based on the neurophysiology of the effects of needling including local, spinal and supraspinal and the modulation of pain via its central effects. The aetiology of trigger points is explained and the most common dry needling techniques are presented.

This course has a large practical component and on completion you will gain competency to needle a wide range of acupuncture and myofascial trigger points and other musculoskeletal structures.

Incontinence and sport
Associate Professor Helena Frawley, FACP - Lead of the women's health physiotherapy research group at Monash University; Head of Allied Health Research and Education at Cabrini Health; PhD University of Melbourne 2008; FACP Specialist Continence and Women's Health Physiotherapist (as awarded in 2011)
Urinary incontinence (UI) in exercising women is common but under-reported and not currently addressed. Research reveals high prevalence rates of UI in nulliparous and parous female athletes, especially those participating in repetitive, high-impact sports – although UI also occurs in sub-elite and recreational exercisers – with negative impact on quality of life and exercise participation. This presentation will explore the magnitude of the problem of UI in exercising and sportswomen (prevalence and impact), how / why does it happen and management options and will highlight knowledge gaps which require further exploration.
