double e_pt_educationDouble E PT Education, a new physical therapy continuing education company, has announced it will now provide trigger point dry needling courses in Arkansas and North Carolina. According to a Double E PT Education news release, the new company is dedicated to excellence in trigger point dry needling education. The courses will include a basic and advanced course in trigger point dry needling for physical therapists in Ark, and both of these courses are now scheduled in NC for 2014.

The Double E PT Education news release indicates that dry needling is a stateā€”of-the-art treatment tool for physical therapists to integrate into manual therapy treatment plans for orthopedic and sports injuries. The treatment tool can be used to address tight muscles or muscle knots known as trigger points by utilizing very thin solid needles. Benefits include reduction of muscle pain and tightness as well as a quick return to function, and the tool can aid in preventing recurrence of the problem, according to a Double E PT Education news release.

Emmanuel J. Easterling, PT, DPT, OCS, CMTPT, states, “We are thrilled to be able to offer trigger point dry needling courses in two states. Physical Therapists can expect to learn the science behind the treatment, the latest evidence, and a gentle effective technique.” Easterling adds, “And most important, physical therapists will learn how to integrate this cutting-edge treatment into a manual therapy treatment plan using clinical reasoning.”
