What is Double E PT Education?
We are a small physical therapy continuing education company, focused on presenting excellence in dry needling education for practicing physical therapists. Our class was originally developed for Army physical therapists and is now available to any licensed PT.
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 deep 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. The Double E instructors 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 the Double E Instructors. 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.
