Testimonials

"Dr. Dunning's dry needling course is far beyond just inserting needles into trigger points within muscles. Needling techniques are demonstrated for the direct treatment of tendons, ligaments, musculotendinous junctions, teno-osseus junctions and peri-neural stimulation. In addition, a comprehensive review of the literature underpinning the use of dry needling in musculoskeletal practice is given. I highly recommend this osteopractic dry needling course for all physical therapists interested in improving outcomes of patients with neuromusculoskeletal conditions."

Dr. Wade Baskin, DPT, Cert. SMT, Cert. DN - Louisville, MS


"Dr. Dunning is the real deal; he can manipulate extremely well. He knows the evidence and dispels many of the myths and misconceptions about traditional manual therapy approaches. I recommend these osteopractic manipulation courses to all physical therapists, especially Fellows who want to become experts in spinal manipulation technique."

Marcos Parga, PT, ATC, FAAOMPT - El Paso, TX


"Dr. James Dunning is an excellent lecturer, superb demonstrator and marvelous manipulator. His knowledge of the relevant spinal manipulation literature is extraordinary. I intend to does this course and the spinal manipulation techniques justice in my medical practice."

Dr. Steven Landau, M.D. - Smithfield, NC


"My patients need spinal manipulation in certain situations. As a medical physician, I need to have the humility to know when medication is making a difference and when it is not. On this course, I learned how to effectively treat a variety of musculoskeletal pain syndromes with specific spinal manipulation procedures."

Dr. Randy Naidoo, M.D. - Dyess Air Force Base, Abilene, TX


"This was a fantastic course! It was the most evidence-based and practical spinal manipulation course I have ever attended. Dr. Dunning supported the HVLA Thrust manipulation techniques with robust and recent evidence in the literature, not anecdotal stories. There was no wasting of time, and fantastic "clinical tips" were demonstrated throughout the course."

Riccardo Rosa, PT, Cert. SMT, Cert. DN, Dip. Osteopractic - Saronno, Italy


"This was a fantastic class, and it was evidence-based. It not only met, but exceeded my expectations. I am looking forward to taking the advanced Osteopractic Spinal Manipulation course."

Dr. Kristi Salinas, M.D. - San Antonio, TX


"Dr. James Dunning is a master clinician and educator. He is able to condense a considerable amount of material and make it clinically applicable. The idea of using thrust manipulation in practice can raise concern with some clinicians with limited experience; however, Dr. Dunning makes the participants at ease and comfortable with learning the techniques."

Dr. William J. Hanney, PhD, DPT, ATC, MTC, CSCS - University of Central Florida, Orlando, FL


"Easily one of the best spinal manipulation courses I have ever taken. Thrust manipulation techniques are demonstrated and instructed for the entire spine and pelvis with a strong evidence-based explanation."

Michael Turner, PT, MSc, OCS, MTC, FAAOMPT - Honolulu, HI


"The DN-1 & DN-2 dry needling courses by Dry Needling Institute provided both the evidence and practical skills for peri-neural, muscular, and connective tissue needling. It wasn't just about inserting needles into taut bands or 'trigger points' like so many other courses out there. The course was framed by real life neuromusculoskeletal conditions that patients actually present with in clinic, not individual muscles. That is, I learned both the evidence and the hands-on needling skills to use dry needling for the treatment of knee osteoarthritis, plantar fasciits, mechanical neck pain, chronic low back pain, pelvic and hip pain, temporomandibular disorder, lateral epicondylalgia, shoulder pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, migraines, cervicogenic and tension type headaches."

Victoria Galante, PT, MOMT, Cert. DN, FAAOMPT, Dip. Osteopractic - Phoenix, AZ


"The DN-2 Dry Needling course by Dry Needling Institute was exemplary. Unlike other dry needling courses that I have attended, Dr. Dunning's depth of knowledge of the relevant literature and clinical background in both acupuncture and dry needling makes this course both first rate and truly evidence-based."

Dr. Justin Dunaway, DPT, Cert. SMT, Cert. DN - Phoenix, AZ


"I have been a Physical Therapist for over 28 years and I've taken countless continuing education courses. Dr. Dunning's dry needling course was by far the best, most evidence-based and useful course I have ever taken!"

Antoinette Munoz, PT, Cert. DN - Sedona, AZ


"Dr. Dunning's DN-1 and DN-2 dry needling courses are a step above the rest. Dunning's Dry Needling Institute teaches a highly evidence-based approach to dry needling for a wide variety of neuromusculoskeletal coniditons, not just myofascial trigger points. Needle puncture of tendons, ligaments, musculotendinous junctions, and teno-osseus junctions is instructed. In addition, and consistent with the literature, peri-neural and peri-vascular needling is integrated for conditions such as carpal tunnel syndrome, sciatica, or other neurogenic pain syndromes. In short, Dr. Dunning teaches a comprehensive and evidence-based approach to dry needling, not a narrowly focused TDN approach that lacks broad underpinning by the literature."

Eric Shifley, PT, Cert. DN - Ideal Physical Therapy, Phoenix, AZ


"Best course I've taken in 14 years of clinical practice! This course is clearly evidence-based. Dr. Dunning teaches the performance of supremely comfortable spinal manipulation techniques, and this is what separates him from the the rest. "

Dr. Andrew Ball, DPT, PhD, PT - Carolinas Medical Center, Charlotte, NC


"The course was excellent. I believe it is cutting edge and where we need to move as a profession. In two days, Dr. Dunning got rid of my headache that four practitioners (in 10 years) have been unable to cure. Thanks so much!"

Cindy Zalamea, PT - Winston Salem, NC

Roberto Bellinfante, D.O. - Montreal, Quebec, Canada


"What every manual therapist needs to be successful at spinal manipulative therapy. There are no other courses teaching such advanced and highly effective high-velocity low-amplitude thrust manipulation techniques like this one!"

Dr. Dmitry Shestakovsky, DPT, PT - Omega Physical Therapy, New York, NY

Gary Kearns, PT - Allen, TX


"Dr. Dunning & Dry Needling Institute deliver the most evidence-based and practical dry needling course out there.

Jeff Allen, PT, OCS - Allen Physical Therapy, South Lyon, MI


"Dr. Dunning's osteopractic spinal manipulation and dry needling courses are brilliant. All the SMT and DN courses are thoroughly grounded in the evidence. The thrust manipulation techniques are immediately effective on real patients Monday morning. The DN-1 and DN-2 dry needling courses are so much more than sticking needles into taut bands or 'trigger points'. I learned peri-neural, muscular, and connective tissue needling techniques for a broad range of musculoskeletal conditions; in addition, I now have a vast amount of literature supporting dry needling that I can give to either patients or referral sources."

Dr. Suzanne Walsh, DPT, Cert. SMT, Cert. DN - Bisbee, AZ


"Dr. Dunning has the ability to cut to the heart of the matter and teach dry needling techniques that are truly evidenced based. The DN-1 and DN-2 dry needling courses by Dry Needling Institute includes peri-neural, ligament, teno-osseus, musculotendinous and scar needling techniques, not just intramuscular trigger point needling. Dry Needling Institute teaches dry needling for the management of real clinical 'conditions' (i.e. plantar fasciitis, knee osteoarthritis, cervicogenic headache, low-back pain, lateral epicondylalgia, carpal tunnel syndrome etc) not individual muscles that patients usually do not present with; furthermore, multiple needles stay in situ for between 10 - 30 minutes as is the case in the controlled trials in the literature. This is the most evidence-based dry needling approach out there."

Dr. Liz Marr, DPT, PhD, PA-C, Cert. DN - Lake Havasu City, AZ


"Very impressive techniques, theory and practical.  The techniques were theoretically sound and very applicable to our patient population.  I will send all of our therapists to this class as it would be a great investment for my company and our patients."

Jack Bice, PT - Huntsville, AL

Dr. Doug Kechijian, DPT - New York, NY
