Dry Needling Works
 

Physical therapists are well trained and professional, and they receive a lot of education before they practice.  Dry needling requires specific knowledge and practice to complete, and it is not the same as acupuncture.  Recently I have a undergone dry needling for an ongoing injury; the practice really does work to alleviate pain/tightness/stress and it could not be done by someone who is not a trained professional.
