Edo D. Zylstra, PT, DPT, OCS is founder and owner of Kineticare, in Brighton, Colorado, where he focuses on manual therapy and dry needling for pain management. He is a board-certified clinical specialist in orthopaedic physical therapy.

He received his certification for dry needling from The Institute for the Study and Treatment Of Pain (iSTOP) in Vancouver, British Columbia, and he has taken training courses in the Travell & Simons’ techniques for diagnosis and treatment of myofascial pain and trigger points. Edo was instrumental in getting dry needling accepted as a treatment technique within the scope of practice for physical therapists in Colorado, and he continues to do the same for other states.

He has taught over 250 courses internationally and currently is developing more advanced techniques for the intervention.
