Pro PT Dry Needling

I have had dry needling administered to me by my Physical Therapist.  This in combination with other treatment only a PT can do, have helped me immensely.  Dry needling should be done by a PT who understands how the body works, which is what they are educated to do.  Dry needling is in the scope of practice of physical therapists.
