EP 096: Trigger Point Dry Needling as Your Niche or Just Part of Your Clinical Toolbox with Paul Killoren

Paul Killoren on the CashPT Lunch Hour Podcast

What’s the most powerful, immediate reset tool you can use in your PT practice? Trigger point dry needling is a great way to help your patients start to release pain and increase performance. When Paul Killoren opened a cash practice where he offered dry needling, he accidentally found himself in a high-demand niche. Now he’s one of the clinicians behind iDryNeedle, a company of transformative leaders in movement health who provide innovative and quality products specifically for physical therapists. Today he’s joining Aaron to explain why dry needling is a must-have addition to your clinical toolbox. You’ll hear how needling changed the way he approaches treatment, how iDryNeedle was started as a means to advocate for PTs, and why we need to work together to create systemic change in physical therapy.


If you are passionate and you devote the energy and you put the commitment into your practice, it’s going to work.
