Support regulations for dry needling

I would like to write in support of the proposed regulations by the board of physical therapy for dry needling to be performed by physical therapists.  The proposed regulations would protect patients and provide structure for physical therapists whom are qualified and educated to perform this valuable service to provide pain relief due to muscle pain.
