Dry needling just renamed the thousands-year-old concepts of acupuncture with modern anatomical terms. Studies showed that more than 92% of common trigger points are anatomically similar to acupoints, and they are both used to treat the same pain disorders. According to the Code of Federal Regulations 21CFR880.5580, it's illegal to use acupuncture needle with an acupuncture license.
