Dry Needling is very fast in relieving chronic pain such as Shoulder, Low back ache, groin pain. Many problems are being solved in short time. I am really happy to say that in a single session of dry needling I have seen good results.
Completing Module 2 was an eye opening about further knowledgein the areas of trigger points in muscles .Thank you sir so much.

Dr. Satya Nagaraju, PT,

Independent Private Practitioner, Kurnool, INDIA

Managing patients with pain had been one of the most challenging tasks being a physio..... Majority of the pain encountered (acute or chronic) was musculo-fascial in origin and no approach was giving a long term solution even though promising some short term relief....Dry needling came as a boon to me and it started to work wonders in eliminating pain very effectively with immediate return in function. I would rather call is as "magical therapy"...

Learning the dry needling course from the man himself Dr. Rajkannan was the best thing to happen. I believe that nobody can teach dry needling as effectively as him and I want to thank sir wholeheartedly...Now I am pretty much confident in my practice and dry needling makes it to the top of my list as an intervention when properly indicated.

Dry Needling was a totally new concept for me when I heard about it. Even though it was tough to learn, because we should have proper knowledge about Muscle anatomy, it’s relations, Biomechanics, palpations, needle positioning etc.. Dr. Rajkannan Sir delivered it in its simplest form.His approach to Education is Quality based, emphasis more on recent advancement in this particular field. I would like to take his own words to describe him, “He is an Evidence Informed Practitioner.

Dr. Rajkannan did a great a job. He was very methodological and well organized in his teaching method. His Dry Needling course has changed the entire paradigm of my treatment methodology and has opened the door for much better clinical efficacy as goals for pain reduction can be achieved in significantly fewer sessions.

Dry Needling, a form of treatment, though painful is loved by many patient. It's an extra tool for all physio which have positive results on varied conditions. Besides basic course which gave good base about needling, the advance course was too more informative which covered most of the difficult part of human body (which most of physio doesn't cover or miss as a part of treatment). Overall it was a great experience to learn DRY NEEDLING COURSE.

Dry needling has a great impact in my clinical practice. I took the course two years ago with Dr. Raj Kannan and he is an excellent, dedicated, and effective instructor. He was able to provide us with a comprehensive background on trigger point dry needling coupled with hands on training. His detailed teaching style was able to make me quickly learn the technique and apply the information to my clinical practice.

I have embraced dry needling as an incredibly effective and contemporary physiotherapy treatment. It allows me to provide immediate, effective, and lasting results to my patients and to variety of musculoskeletal problems. I am grateful to be a part of Dr. Raj’s class and I am thankful for the information and technique that he as shared as it has improved the outcome I have achieved with my patients.

Dara Raj,PT,

Director and HOD Wellcare group of physiotherapy clinic, Trivandrum, Kerala.

I have been practicing Dry Needling since 2016, it has done wonders for my practice. Since I am an independent practitioner its easy for me to convince my clients for Dry Needling. I honestly say that I have got almost 90% of the success rate through Dry Needling. I would say its another tool under my sleeves to treat my clients. I sincerely request all the physios to continue to practice Dry Needling or Manual Therapy after doing certification/ Workshop to become a good practitioner.
