Manipal, Sep 29: The two-day workshop on “Cadaveric and Human Demonstration for Dry Needling Techniques, organized by Department of Anatomy, Melaka Manipal Medical College (MMMC) in association with the Department of Physiotherapy, School of Allied Health Sciences (SOAHS), Bangalore last Friday and Saturday at MMMC’s Manipal campus was a unique experience for all the participants. 

The resource persons gave a demonstration of surface anatomy and gross anatomy on cadavers. The cadaveric demonstration gave the participants a thorough understanding of the trigger points on the body, which in turn made them confident of handling human complaints. The dry needling technique was then practiced first on soft smiley balls, giving the participants a feel of the real human body. After a few trials, the techniques were practiced on volunteers at the workshop.   

The techniques were taught by Dr. Prem and Mr. Karavannan from the SOAHS, Bangalore campus. Both of them being therapist themselves shared the knowledge they have learnt from the pioneers of this techniques. The uniqueness of the workshop was that it perhaps, was one of its kind to include anatomy cadaveric knowledge with the techniques to spot the trigger points on the muscles for pain management.
