dry needling

Dry needling by my PT has helped tremendously with my pain in my lower back and shoulder.

I think that a trained physical therapist who understands the body and has the knowledge to help alleviate pain and strengthen the body should be allowed to do dry needling.

PT should be allowed to do dry needling to alleviate pain.  It works!
