DIN-2: Electric & Perineural DINS Approaches

This 27-hour live course will be supplemented with online modules strategically developed to maximize use of the three-day live course offering.  DIN-2 is a case-driven, differential diagnosis course instructing participants on how to incorporate electrical & perineural needling within a patient-centered neuromusculoskeletal clinical presentation.  Emphasis will be placed on how to treat the sensitized peripheral and central nervous systems.  Participants will be exposed to current evidence-informed theoretical models that will reconcile physiological tissue responses with pain neuroscience as well as the implementation of electrical dynamic integrative needling coupled with instructional movement strategies for patient reinforcement.

ONLINE MODULES:  To be announced.

*Online modules include built-in assessment.  Participants must pass with a score of 75% or better to qualify for certification.*

A 100+ page manual is provided with all lectures and detailed needling intervention descriptions to participants at the course.

This course is currently being evaluated by the ProCert approval process for continuing education credit.

This course is part of The Hobbs Masters Needling Series and is a prerequisite to receiving the Certification in Dynamic Integrative Needling (Cert. DIN).  Click here for more information.

This course will set you apart from your competition. It is designed with the private practice practitioner in mind. Become the go-to provider in your community that everyone is talking about when it comes to back pain, cervicogenic headaches, and MSK conditions.


By the end of this course participants will be able to:

  1. List 5 indications to performing electrical dynamic integrative needling (DIN) in a given patient population.
  2. List 5 contraindications to performing electrical-DIN in a given patient population.
  3. Correctly determine the primary pain mechanism driving the presentation of a given patient case.
  4. Correctly explain the current theoretical mechanisms of electrical-DIN in regards to pain neurosciences.
  5. Correctly justify the use of electrical-DIN in a given patient presentation.

PREREQUISITES: Licensed PT, MD, DO or NMD or a student enrolled in a PT, MD, DO or NMD program. Please bring proof of licensure or student ID to class.

*All MD, DO and NMD students are eligible to attend. PT students must be in their 2nd or 3rd year of study or attend with a Professor, CI, or PT mentor.

*DIN-1 is a prerequisite to DIN-2 unless you have previous needling experience and training. If you have been needling for more than a year and have taken at least 24 hours of needling training you may petition to participate in DIN-2. Please email a summary of your needling experience and training for approval. Approval is based on a case-by-case basis determined by the quality of your previous needling experience. Prior needling participants will be required to take additional online coursework to facilitate learning and attainment of the common language utilized throughout the DINS series.
