This two-day course is designed for chartered physiotherapists who have previously undertaken a recognised acupuncture foundation course, have not practised for a couple of years and/or for those who wish to refresh their knowledge and skills in the clinical treatment of both acute and chronic pain.
Day one covers a review of the analgesic mechanisms of acupuncture, the health and safety implications including contraindication and precautions as well as discussion regarding the concept of the layering technique related to physiological mechanisms and clinical reasoning. Practical aspects of the day will cover the needling of the most common acupuncture points utilised in clinical practice based on meridians.
Day two will take the knowledge from day one and build on the understanding of prescriptions and treatment design. This includes incorporating points into the effective clinical management of common musculoskeletal conditions, which will be discussed in theory and then needled practically.
The course delivers 14 hours approved CPD. Participants should be CSP and HCPC registered and have already successfully undertaken a recognised acupuncture foundation course.
