PT should be allowed to do dry needling

After lifelong pain in my back - and despite many attempts to successfully treat this - the pain was relentless.   Luckily my physician recommended PT specialists that were trained in dry needling.   Adding dry needling to the treatment made all the difference in my outcome. I can now function at a pain free level both in work and athletics. I highly recommend that this therapy be allowed in the treatment options the PT deems useful.
