 HPE UK:  Functional Dry Needling (advanced approach)

post-graduate level higher education, UK / Accredited by DHA

(Dubai Health Authority) / CPD G UK


HPE UK offer post-graduation level higher education certification courses. Functional Dry Needling crafted and created with advanced recent based evidence protocol by HPE UK physical therapist in London, UK. 

This approach integrates a variety of dry-needling techniques during a single session. Unlike acupuncture or trigger point release therapy,  which traditionally selects points along meridians, functional dry needling targets anatomical structures that are the underlying cause of musculoskeletal conditions.

The benefits are decreased pain, decrease muscle dysfunction, and improved functional movements.

HPE Functional Dry Needling follows the guidelines governed by Australian Physiotherapy Association (APA)

HPE UK functional Dry Needling, the only Accredited Course from DHA in India, provides protocols for various clinical and sports conditions that are being researched and designed in London, UK by sports and musculoskeletal physical therapists and followed widely among health care professionals.

HPE UK Functional Dry Needling uses recent evidence-based practice with proper guidelines from the Australian Dry Needling Association and incorporates needling into all connective tissues considering public health and patient safety. 


During a typical treatment, thin filament needles are inserted into various target tissue that has been determined to be the underlying cause of the painful condition. They are left in from several seconds to 20 minutes. Typically there will be 10 or more needles used for most conditions. Different strategies are used for acute injuries and chronic pain conditions making this a highly effective treatment modality for Somatic and Mechanical Dysfunction.


The insertion of needles into the tissues causes the release of substances that help improve blood flow to areas of tightness and decreases sensitivity by neuromodulating the nervous system. These effects help control pain, improve function, and speed up healing.

PUBLIC NOTICE: Fraud Warning: fake and illegal workshop in India.

Email received through multiple sources claim that Dr. Jatin Patel (Professor, Gujrat University) is teaching the same HPE Functional Dry Needling Content, taught to him in one of our HPE Dry Needling Courses (basic module) in Mumbai- March 2019. Dr. Jatin Patel is not associated with the HPE institute in any form, neither he is a Certified Instructor for the same. He is just a certified Practitioner just like any other student. He has just completed the basic module with HPE in the year 2019 and started teaching whatever an average student can understand in 2 days batches across India. 

Dr. Jatin Patel is fully aware that he is illegally presenting a fractured and distorted view of the Dry Needling modality and is thereby damaging its reputation and endangering public health. Mr. Patel has neither the requisite knowledge nor the legal right to teach HPE Functional Dry Needling Content or any other dry-needling techniques.

HPE UK Healthcare LTD does not endorse this individual in any way whatsoever and hereby notifies
the public of our position and physiotherapy students in India to be aware and create awareness of his fraudulent and dangerous activity. HPE has submitted a written complaint to the IAP Students welfare department and Gujrat Council.
