Review quote

-The book's narrative style incorporates clinical and empirical evidence to underpin arguments for and against dry needling. It takes the reader on a clear journey from the effects of using needles on connective tissue and fascia to the evidence and application of trigger point dry needling...This is an excellent book for any physiotherapist who wants a clinically relevant overview of dry needling.-
