The state of Virginia must have proper guidelines and state mandated educational hours of training and required credentials from state or nationally accredited governing body. Medical professionals performing dry needling must be granted to medical professionals who are in compliance with the required hours of training and passing medical board exams like acupuncturist. I am opposed to PTs who have limited training in dry needling which requires expertise and extensive training . We cannot compromise the safety of the patients with such negligence of allowing PTs to perform such medical treatment as dry needling. Stay within their lane .
