Keep dry needling at Physical Therapist Offices
 

Dry needling provided by our PT has been instrumental in our daughter’s migraine pain management as well as aiding in recovery of injuries due to dance. Only a highly trained Physical Therapist would know how to use dry needling as a pain reliever and sports injury aid.  Also, most insurance companies will cover PT visits but not acupuncture visits.
