Christian Gartner is organizing this fundraiser on behalf of Matthew Elstein.
Physical Therapist in NJ need your HELP! Ever go to a Physical Therapist for a muscle/joint or nerve problems, and after the treatment you were so sore or worse, still in pain. Which leds to other issues (lost wadges, unable to exercise, walk, throw a ball, turn your head ect.) Well, there is a technique that can almost instaneously improve the pain and restore the mobility in moveable joints. This technique is called Dry Needling. It is not acupucture! And anyone that has ever had Dry Needling performed on them can attest to that! Dry Needling involves the therapist to be certified, and is based upon Western Medicine (involving years of Human Anatomy, Biomechanics and Pathophysiology studies). Now, Certified Physical Therapist in New Jersey have been using Dry Needling for years to help many musculoskeletal problems like frozen shoulder/rotator cuff pain, low back pain, neck pain, rib problems, hip/knee/ankle problems, radiculopathies/nerve pain, and hand/elbow problems, reducing the need for opiates and rehabilitation time saving the patients and insurance companies thousands of dollars. Now on 07/01/2017 the state is telling PhysicalTherapists they can't perform this technique anymore. This proclamation is without merit! There are no cases of a Physical Therapist hurt anymone in NJ with a Dry Needle. The loss of Dry Needling will deleteriously effect thousand of patients in the State. This fund has been created to support the judicial costs to save Dry Needling in the state of New Jersey. 100% of the money raised goes to help support this judicial process. PLEASE HELP PHYSICALTHERAPIST save this vital tool called Dry Needling. Thank you for your support. If any money is left over after the judicial process for Dry Neelding is resolved, it will be donated to charity of the APTA's choosing.
