Laughable @ PTs doing dry needling = L.Ac doing trigger point injections.

Why would you allow PTs do dry needling, its an invasive procedure that is best to be perform by needling experts, and we call them licensed acupuncturists, otherwise, those same acupuncturists should be able to do trigger point injections. LOL!
