    Overview

    Certified Advanced Clinical Dry Needling Professional Program

    Muscle Referred Pain is a phenomenon that has been described for more than a century & has been used extensively as a diagnostic tool in the clinical setting. Typically, pain from the deep structures such as muscles, joints, ligaments, tendons, fascia & viscera is described as deep, diffuse & difficult to locate accurately for nerve fixations in contrast to superficial types of pain, such as pain originating in skin.


    Peripheral Radicular Pain Neuro Connective Model (Module 2) as the name implies is needling on
    the flow of peripheral nerves from proximal to distal. The presence of the Fascial Adhesive Band (FAB), Fascial Adhesive Areas (FAA), which are results of slightest shearing force because the muscle can only withstand longitudinal force & not shearing
    force, the Nerves sometimes gets fixed.

    The referred pain can be perceived in any region of the body, but the size of the referred pain area is
    variable & can be influenced by changes in somatosensory maps. The process where nerve gets fixed is called as Neural Fixation in which the nerve typically looses its ability to glide & Stretch which results in increase in its intraneural or perineural pressure.

    Peripheral Radicular Pain Neuro Connective Model (Module 2) follows the standard principles of neural mobility & neural functions. The process in Peripheral Radicular Pain Neuro Connective Model (Module 2) addresses the working of dry needles so as to provide freedom of movement to the peripheral nerves to maintain nerve conduction, electromagnetic conduction, intraneural blood supply, intraneural nerve supply, local & systemic responsiveness.

    In Peripheral Radicular Pain Neuro Connective Model (Module 2) it is less important particularly regarding the layer of the body where fascia is located but the sequence remains important. The Peripheral Radicular Pain Neuro Connective Model (Module 2) addresses fascia because the fascia registers the movement of muscles & the supporting connective tissue which may be a true
    movement or a change in muscle tension.

    It is the ability of the fascia on perception of pain that is nociception is affected & severe pain is triggered & contributes lot of disturbance on the locomotor system. The Peripheral Radicular Pain Neuro Connective Model (Module 2) especially concentrates on the fact that the fascia can contract without the influence of the associated skeletal muscle & it is possible that the fascia can go in relaxation after the dry needling procedure.
