I FAVOR PHYSICAL THERAPISTS TO BE ABLE TO DO DRY NEEDLING
 
This should be done in the hands of a skilled and well trained therapist, such as Dr. Hernandez. I have had "dry needling" done on multiple occasions for sports related injuries and it have proven to be very beneficial. Stopping Physical Therapists from doing "dry needling" would be a profound dis-service to patients.
Please contact me if further information is needed.
