Yes! PTs should be able to!

Physical Therapists are trained medical professionals. Just like any other professional medical or not, if they are trained and proven competent they should be able to perform tasks. This is especially true in the medical field. Licensed therapists along with other medical professionals have a responsibility to their communities and this includes be able to offer as many services to as many people without prejudice as possible. I think it would be a setback to not only these professionals but the community as a whole to not allow Physical therapists to perform dry needling.
