    A good question – and one we get on courses all the time.

    “Should I use dry needling before or after other manual techniques?”

    I’ll defuse the potential e-bomb right now and say this is clearly an “it depends” answer. It depends on a lot actually…diagnosis, condition chronicity, severity, complexity, your treatment model, your expertise – but l
