The Importance of Anatomy to the Dry Needling Practice
I was recently asked on a podcast a very interesting question. What are the requisite sets of knowledge and skills to be a safe and effective dry needler? It was a very interesting discussion where we discussed practice history, types of educational backgrounds and skills but my very fundamental and first clear line was a strong knowledge of anatomy and an appreciation for your patient’s anatomy. The relevance of anatomy to the dry needling practice is even more important as we start placing needles 3-dimensionally into the body.
