Physical Therapists have performed dry needling safely and effectively for many years now. The research supports that dry needling does indeed work, and as the number of practitioners have increased there has been no upward trends in injuries or malpractice suits related directly to PT's performing this procedure. PT's are doctors of their profession, with extensive education in anatomy and neurology. PT's certified in dry needling have proven themselves to be safe, effective, and professional.
This is not the first time acupuncturists have attempted to thwart PT's from performing dry needling. Acupuncturists recently lost their suit in North Carolina.
