Providing excellence in dry needling education to physical therapists
What Makes Double E Different?
Our evidence-influenced instruction coupled with extensive clinical reasoning teaches trigger point dry needling as one physical therapy treatment tool to integrate into a multi-modal treatment plan. Physical therapists can expect to learn a non-aggressive style of trigger point dry needling concentrated on continual re-assessment of each patient's response and tolerance.
I had been dry needling for almost 5 years when I decided it was time to take a 'refresher' course to learn new techniques and approaches. Mary Kay and E have excellent teaching strategies and really help the PT feel confident about their skills after each lab session. Safety is their top priority, and this helps technique and self-assurance when it comes to needling around the lung field. I am very pleased with this course and the instruction really helped me refine my skills.

After 2 weeks of incorporating DN into my clinical practice, I can already appreciate the effectiveness of this new tool. I am very thankful for Dr.'s Easterling and Hannah. They do an excellent job incorporating current literature and expert experience when teaching. Lab instruction was outstanding, and I greatly appreciate their instruction on gentle style/technique as some patients have more sensitivity to DN than others.

I am so glad I went to Double E PT Education! Over the past ten years, I have seen the steady accumulation of research supporting dry needling. Understanding the importance of keeping my skills current with the developing evidence, I enrolled in the two Double E courses in dry needling. I found the primary instructors, Emmanuel and Mary Kay, to be incredibly knowledgeable and helpful and the organization of the course was very thoughtful and effective. Knowing that both of these instructors went out of their way to enroll in dry needling courses from other vendors and modify their instruction based on the lessons learned made me appreciate the variety of techniques they taught that much more.
This additional treatment tool has really helped improve outcomes more rapidly than when I treated soft tissue impairments with hands alone; and my hands are also thankful! I know that with such an excellent foundation, my knowledge and skills will continue to grow and so will the outcomes for my patients. I am very thankful to Double E PT Education for the opportunity they provided to change my practice for the better.
