      Great post Kyle. I was very skeptical of dry needling when I first started. Still think the proposed mechanisms behind it working are flawed. And the research behind needling isn’t good enough yet.
      It has been a game changer for many things for me. That being said I don’t proclaim it to be the best treatment ever to my patients. It is just another tool in the toolbox.
      I curiously await what will happen with DN in the future. Will research catch up? Will it stand the test of time?

        If research into fads and the next big things of the past (TENS, iontophoresis, even manipulation) are any indication, the research evidence will disappoint, but PT’s infatuation will fade much more slowly, if at all.
