IDN can be applied to a wide range of neuromusculoskeletal conditions and presentations. In some cases, IDN can be used to treat primary myofascial pain resulting from overload injuries isolated to a single muscle or region. At other times, IDN may form only one component of the treatment plan to address myofascial contributions to biomechanical conditions e.g. shoulder impingement or tendonopathy. Lastly, IDN has a role to play in the treatment of myofascial pain of radiculopathic/neuropathic origin as well as central sensitization.
During our course, we use a series of case histories to help with clinical reasoning through a wide variety of patient presentations. Techniques will be learned that are applicable to the neck, back, pelvis, upper and lower extremities, temporomandibular region as well as for headaches.
