TRIGGER POINT DRY NEEDLING

Trigger Point Dry Needling is an effective approach for the treatment of MyoFascial Trigger Points. Dr. Kostopoulos and Dr. Rizopoulos have learned, researched, practiced and taught this very effective approach for many years. The Federation of State Boards of Physical Therapy – FSBPT as well as the American Physical Therapy Association – APTA published their position papers supporting the use of Dry Needling by Physical Therapists.

It is the view of Hands-On Seminars that Dry Needling is a therapeutic modality that fits within the scope of the physical therapy profession. We encourage PT programs to include dry needling as part of their undergraduate teaching curriculum. Hands-On Seminars and its founders offer courses in Dry Needling.
