I am in Support of Trigger Point Dry Needling for Physical Therapists

With the requirement for training and hours practicing before someone can actually perform dry needling I think this should remain in practice for Physical Therapists who meet the requirements.   I have seen the benefits first hand of Trigger Point Dry Needling to patients and how much symptoms can improve after the procedure is performed.
