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.
