Dry needling is one type of acupuncture, and a product of integration of traditional and modern medicine. It is trigger point acupuncture. The current training PT have doesn’t give them sufficient knowledge and experience to do needling. PT need to learn more about human body’s reaction to needling instead of just learn trigger points then puncture those points. Many side effects may happen and patients in that way. PT need to enroll in acupuncture school and complete acupuncture program before they can practice Dry Needling-Trigger Point Acupuncture.
