About the event

NOMA trainings provide an expansive and comprehensive foundation in the art and science of prolotherapy. This includes a primer on prolotherapy, safety measures, clean technique, palpation skills, diagnostics, and common injection points. Participants will receive credit for 14 hours of CE, fulfilling the requirement in Oregon for therapeutic injections for the upper extremity. https://secure.sos.state.or.us/oard/viewSingleRule.action?ruleVrsnRsn=272889

All levels of experience in prolotherapy are encouraged to attend. The hands-on portion of the course will allow for varying levels of experience to break-out and match with an instructor that will further your skills.

Be a part of this much needed community of committed prolotherapy doctors, elevate your practice, and give your patients long-lasting pain relief.

There will not be ultrasound guidance instruction at the course. Ultrasound will be freely available as a teaching tool and aide.

NOMA’s stance on ultrasound is that it is an extremely valuable tool when mastered. Learning ultrasound guided injection technique requires mastery of ultrasound physics, anatomy, and pathology– all of which are beyond the scope of this workshop. Ultrasound expertise is a completely separate skill set from injecting and this workshop will be focused on injecting. We do not want to give attendees the sense that they are competent in ultrasound guided injection technique if they do not have the prerequisite diagnostic ultrasound training. There are many great resources for diagnostic ultrasound training and future NOMA workshops will be 100% ultrasound focused.

Registration for the course will include a year's membership in NOMA where we are building an organization for NDs, by NDs, to further excellence in the field of musculoskeletal medicine.

Lunch will be provided both days.

Lecture notes will be shared with participants electronically and will not be printed out.

Please Be Aware:

All participants that wish to fully participate and get credit for the hands-on portion involving injections must be willing to be injected themselves. A saline/anesthetic mixture will be used as the default injectate solution as a substitute for hyperosmotic dextrose, eliminating therapeutic action. Proper anesthetizing and nerve block techniques will be a part of the curriculum, reducing discomfort for participants and future patients. Participants will be injecting participants and if you aren't willing to be injected, then you will not be allowed to inject.

Cancellation Policy:

Fully refundable less $100 registration fee if written notice more than 30 days from start of conference. 50% refundable if written notice within 7 to 30 days from start of conference. Non-refundable less than 7 days from start of conference.
