Dry Needling

I had acupuncture several years ago for chronic pain behind my shoulder.  Although I had 5 treatments with the insertion of multiple needles each time, it did nothing for my muscle pain.  I haven’t had dry needling but my husband has and had excellent results.  I would not go back for acupuncture but I would have dry needling if needed as long as it is included as a part of a PT plan of care.
