Dry Needling

I have been receiving dry needling for several months now. It has given me relief from muscle pain that I was unable to obtain before without medication.

My physical therapist is highly trained and extremely knowledgeable about the human body and how dry needling affects the trigger points. In addition she uses other PT techniques to help me reduce the occurrence of trigger points.

I am 100 % supportive of the use of dry needling in well trained practitioners. I support any legislation that allows this practice to continue in VA and I support any legislator who votes yes to keep it in the state.
