Dry Needling

Dry needling is a technique; it is not a profession. PTs are introduced to the intervention  during the undergraduate education, and are taught safe, and effective dry needling when they choose a certification course after graduation. Dry needling is one of many interventions used by PTs to alleviate pain and improve function for our patients.
