As a patient who has had both acupuncture and Dry Needling, I find that they are very different techniques. I am in support of trained PTs retaining the ability to use Dry Needling in their practices. My condition improved much more with the addition of Dry Needling to my therapy than without it. There is a synergy with Dry Needling of muscle Trigger Points and the various therapies performed/taught by PTs. Please do not take Dry Needling away from trained Physical Therapists!
