1 hour


With the steady increase of physiotherapists utilizing dry needling and/or acupuncture in clinical practice, it is imperative that the safety of the patient be of the utmost priority.

This webinar will discuss major and minor complications that occur because of a monofilament needle insertion, steps that are to be taken to avoid them from occurring, as well as actions that should be followed if they do occur.

The webinar will also discuss contraindications, precautions, regions where special caution are needed, and professional responsibilities related to the insertion of monofilament needles. The content is congruent with UBC Gunn IMS certification training that is based on over 25 years of evolution and continual review of safety procedures.
