PT's have been applying dry needling for > 20 years. PT's have a doctorate education, strong knowledge of the human anatomy, and understanding of pathophysiology.
Dry needling is NOT acupuncture nor is it trying to be acupuncture. It is a different treatment rationale and purpose.
Artists and architects both use pencils. Just because an artist uses a pencil it does not make him an architect or assume he is one.
Just like manipulations are not chiropractic, needles are not acupuncture.
