My daughter injured her knee and after seeing Hulst Jepsen for PT and dry needling she recovered quickly and got back to playing softball with minimal downtime! I also went for dry needling after a knee injury and know it helped speed up my recovery. I would recommend Hulst Jepsen in a heartbeat.Tracy D.
