In addition to Pain & Rehabilitation Medicine, Dr. Robert Gerwin has founded Myopain Seminars together with Jan Dommerholt. Myopain Seminars is the premier post-graduate continuing education company in the United States, with a focus on myofascial pain syndrome, manual trigger point therapy, and trigger point dry needling/injections.
Myopain has two major programs:

The Travell Series includes hands-on continuing education workshops designed for licensed healthcare practitioners, who are allowed to use dry needling in their practice and jurisdiction, including physicians and physician assistants, dentists, physical therapists, chiropractors, acupuncturists, nurses, and nurse practitioners.

This unique, interdisciplinary conference highlights current research and clinical management of chronic pain of musculoskeletal, myofascial, and neuropathic origin. The most recent Focus on Pain seminar was held in Philadelphia in the fall of 2005. The next one will be in 2009.
