Dry needling and physical therapy

Physical Therapists should be able to perform dry needling in my opinion. I have suffered with having scoliosis my whole life which has lead me to have severe back pain and tight muscles that make it hard for me to move or function in daily living. It wasn’t until I went to physical therapy and they did dry needling on me which changed my life forever. I was able to move again everyday without pain and after having dry needling done I have not had back pain for years. Physical Therapists are life changing people who have treatments such as dry needling that change people’s lives. Don’t take that away from them because that means I would still be living with pain. They have changed my life with that treatment. Thank you
