Dry needling is needed

Being an athletic trainer at a public high school, when I send my athletes to physical therapy, dry needling is a crucial part as to why they get better sooner than athletes who don't go to PT who do dry needling. This is critical to my athlete's success and getting them back on the field sooner and with less limitations. The changes dry needling gives them is unlike anything else out there right now. And physical therapist go through enough training to make sure to do it safely and are knowledgable to make the treatments very effective.
