YES to PTs performing dry needling

Dry needling is in no way related to acupuncture and PTs are very careful to ensure patients do not confuse these.  DPTs are highly skilled in palpation and anatomical knowledge and I am not sure that any other HCP would be more qualified to administer this treatment, we see significant benefit from it in our clinic.
