I have had dry needling therapy performed on me several times by a highly trained doctor of physical therapy, Dr. Travis Stoner of Fusion Physical Therapy in Fredericksburg VA. I had it performed, both pre and post knee surgery twice, with excellent results, especially with my recovery time. A couple of years ago I shuffled into Dr. Stoner’s clinic with a high level of lower back pain. After just one treatment, I walked out feeling like a new man. I also think that one should be able to have this therapy performed without a medical doctor’s prescription required. I highly recommend dry needling therapy and will continue to have this performed when necessary. My family physician and my orthopedic doctor have had absolutely NO problem prescribing dry needling therapy for me, but I would like to see this being a mode of therapy not requiring a prescription.
