I strongly support PTs performing Dry Needling!

As a Senior Citizen, being in the age group most needing relief from chronic pain, I would not choose to go to a acupuncturists, but would certainly feel more comfortable  going to a doctor-approved physical therapists who is certified to perform Dry Needling.  Why limit who can relieve human suffering? Think of the people in pain.
