|Action||Practice of dry needling|

I believe qualified people should be able to administer dry needling. I would never have gone to an acupuncturist. I don't go to chiropractors any more. I went to people I trusted to fix my pain and they did. I resisted their advice for dry needling for years. When I finally did allow the procedure it helped. It's not my first choice - I hate needles. But there are instances when therapists at ITW helped me by using it.
I still would not ever go to an acupuncturist. I don't feel I trust the oversight given to them. There should be regulation for dry needling. I believe it can be poorly done and probably have seriously debilitating repercussions. I don't believe that only acupuncturist should practice it. But any one who does practice it should be thoroughly vetted and licensed.
