Against PT practice “Dry Needle”

Opposition to dry needling without acupuncture licenses. So call Dry Needle totally come from traditional Chinese Acupuncture, it is required long and good education, PT is not enough time for training; penetrating needle into the skin is beyond PT profession. Acupuncture/dry needle should only be administered by a Licensed Acupuncturist.
