UBC Gunn IMS Program: Certification Course and Needling Review Opportunity (Vancouver, BC)

Dates:

Description:

To watch the free video explaining the Gunn Neuropathic Model of Myofascial Pain and the Gunn IMS Approach, go to https://www.gunnims.com/ and scroll through the blog to “The Gunn Model of Neuropathic Dysfunction - watch the video!”

Dr. Chan Gunn was a visionary in understanding how alterations in the nervous system can lead to complex musculoskeletal dysfunction. He demonstrated that intramuscular dry needling can beneficially effect the sensitivity of the nervous system and improve treatment outcomes for musculoskeletal pain syndromes. Through decades of refinement, his rationale and treatment techniques are used today by thousands of medical doctors and physiotherapists with remarkable success.

Gunn IMS offers treatment and rehabilitation solutions for patients with persistent musculoskeletal pain conditions. You will learn to recognise and treat both the myofascial and neural (wiring) component of the musculoskeletal problems you face in your everyday practice. Our comprehensive training prioritizes patient safety in all dry needling techniques, while maintaining maximum effectiveness. The program also provides a thorough evidence-informed assessment and treatment rationale for effectively integrating dry needling into your practice.

The Gunn IMS program sits within UBC's Division of Sport and Exercise Medicine in the Faculty of Medicine. The theory and practical components provided on this course will help therapists successfully treat clients that frustrate and mystify with other management approaches.

Our 3-part course will teach you:

A whole body approach that addresses the role of the nervous system in persistent myofascial pain syndromes.

  • How to understand and identify underlying nervous system dysfunction
  • How dry needling can positively alter nervous system sensitization 
  • To look beyond local tissues when treating orthopaedic conditions

You will gain these skills:

  • A thorough and cohesive assessment method to guide your treatment
  • Safe and effective dry needling techniques to treat 110 different muscles
  • The rationale to choose appropriate dry needling "dosage" to optimally alter neuropathic dysfunction

 

  • NEEDLING REVIEW: The objective of Needling Review is to offer an opportunity to previously-certified Gunn IMS practitioners to revise all the certification course  needling techniques as they are currently taught. Starting in Fall 2023, we will also offer the opportunity to review all the current certification course theory material.
