I Strongly Support Physical Therapists Perfomning Dry Needling
 

My mother, husband and I have all been treated with dry needling by qualified and trained physical therapists at Innovative Therapy and Wellness.  They were knowledgeable, sterile and better qualified than my pain management MD in performing this technique correctly and successfully.  I have not found accupunture to be successful in the past and swear by my exceptionally well trained physical therapists, who have earned several advance degrees.  I can't imagine any reason other than greed for accupunturists to  be trying to stop qualified PTs from performing this procedure.
