In Support of PTs using Dry Needling

I feel Trigger Point Dry Needling is 100% within the scope of PT practice and as a profession PTs are very well qualified to perform it safely and effectively.  Extensive training beyond schooling is required in VA to obtain certification as well and meet the required number of sessions for treatment.
