Strongly in favor of PT dry needling

Dry Needling is well within the scope of physical therapy (more so than acupuncturists) and is undeniably helpful in restoration of musculoskeletal function. Taking away dry needling from PT would deny them a safe, useful, and highly relevant tool for rehab. For some patients this is key to recovery.
