Dry needling is only a minor part of acupuncture which only involves the local acupuncture points ( some one pain points). The practicality of allowing PT to practice Dry Needling is equivalent to allowing Nurses who are not qualified as MD to practice as a GP or surgeon. Consequently it has raised some safety issues and damaging the reputation of acupuncture. For the benefit of the general public, I am strongly against that Dry needling being separate from acupuncture and the PT practice of acupuncture is consequently half baked.
