Dry Needling

I have been injured twice through a car accident and once an injury with a frozen shoulder. All 3 times dry needling has assisted in pain reduction, increased timing with healing and overall long-term healing. It is a critical technique as part of physical therapy for which I would drive numerous hours to receive. It is also critical that PTs are trained and certified in this area of knowledge
