The background of Dry Needling is based upon a study where hypodermic needles were used, not acupuncture needles. The underlying theory is based on acupuncture.
Physical Therapists are undertrained for procedures that pierce the skin, and the statistics show that they have caused pneumonia thorax injuries and other severe damage to individuals due to the limited training.
This is an attempt to move a medical modality from trained practitioners to undertrained physical trainers.
do not authorize dry needling in Virginia, it would be irresponsible.
