Functional Integrated Needling:
Intensive 3-Day Workshop

Overview

The purpose of the Functional Integrated Needling Sports Injury Management Training Program is to develop the knowledge and clinical skills required to effectively diagnose and treat common, challenging and difficult-to treat sports injuries. This training program has been built upon Dr. Scappaticci’s extensive clinical experience managing sports injuries for NHL, NFL, NBA, NFL, MLB, and international Olympic athletes. This highly interactive and practical program reviews detailed functional anatomy and the pathomechanics of common sports injuries and is designed to ensure that clinicians are able to employ 7 specialized needling techniques to improve outcomes for common but hard-to treat sports injuries such as lateral epicondylitis, adhesive capsulitis, patellar tendonitis, and tracking symptoms, groin injuries, mechanical low back pain, Achilles tendonitis and plantar fasciitis.
