In this video, Dr. Rick Wall demonstrates canine trigger point therapy using a dry needling technique. Dr. Wall coordinates the Canine Trigger Point Management course offered by Myopain Seminars. Here is what course participants are saying about the course:
"The Introduction to Canine Trigger Points Course was the most impressive 2-day learning experience I have ever had. Trigger point therapy will help a majority of my chronic pain patients (and some of those I see 'recovering' from surgery who aren't yet my patients as I work with surgeons). I am confident that this will transform my ability to treat patients.
"Rick Wall has devoted much time and energy to bring this modality to veterinary medicine in the US, and I can recommend the course to anyone who wants to recognize a source of treatable pain and dysfunction in their athletic patient or in the old multijoint disabled dog. He blends personal observation, his extensive knowledge of physical exam, case description, video, demonstration, and practice together for a unique experience. Jan Dommerholt, a noted scholar in the field for humans, has a remarkable ability to bring everyone up to speed on the really complicated pathophysiology of pain, using scientific evidence, imagery and a really captivating lecture style. Both Rick and Jan are unbelieveably tireless and enthusiastic teachers in lab.
"I would strongly advise everyone to watch for the next course offering and save themselves a place. Whether you plan to use needles, laser, pressure or current to disarm those trigger points, you will find this course amazing."
