Dry Needling for Physical Therapy

For years I searched for a Therapist that could give me relief from spinal fractures that were a result of being hit by a car when I was 15 years old.   I have had to deal with numbness and sharp nerve pain and the only 2 thing that gave me relief were, Kim Holt of Roanoke Rehab and Wellness and Dry Needling.  So many people will not have the chance to experience a life free of constant pain if this modality is taken from the Physical Therapists that strive to help their patients.  My hope...for myself as well as everyone else who has been physically compromised, is for Dry Needling to remain in the well qualified and trained hands of the Physical Therapist.
