I am abundantly in support of dry needling by trained physical therapists. Dry needling is clearly a beneficial modality for trigger point therapy. My therapist was able to release my trigger points safely and efficiently with dry needling, giving me almost immediate relief of shoulder tension and migraine headaches. Time off from work is limited for most professionals. Being able to receive this type of treatment without having to make two different medical appointments is a time saver, as well as being cost efficient.
Please allow physical therapists who have sought out appropriate additional training to continue providing dry needling services to their patients.
