Fully support PT’s doing dry needling

I had major spine surgery 13 years ago. For the past 3 years I have had sciatica, neck, and back pain. The physical therapist that was recommended was able to help me by doing dry needling. 

Although acupuncture may help a lot of people, it did not help me. It should not take the place of dry needling by trained physical therapists.
