    Podiatric Needling Essentials 2 (PNE2)

    Lower limb MSK conditions often have their genesis above the knee or MSK conditions develop above the knee due to distal conditions and dysfunction. For for more effective treatment of either of these scenarios you will benefit enormously by also treating above the knees. We will continue with the building blocks you started with in PNE1 and then put all you have been learning together by treating the functional chains in the body. The PNE2 workshop covers full lower limb conditions. PNE1 is a prerequisite for this workshop. The workshop is delivered by Shane Toohey, AHPRA registered Podiatrist and an AHPRA registered Acupuncturist. Completing this workshop is a pre-requisite for more adding more powerful techniques provided in advanced workshops.
