Dry Needling Update – January 15, 2016
On Jan 11th the Physical Therapy Licensing Board held a special rule making hearing to review 2 changes.
The first was rule 1150-01-.08 regarding remediation plans for someone that fails the PT licensure exam. This rule passed as written and effective July 1 2015, the Board will no longer approve individualized structured remediation plans. See the state website for further details.
The second rule was 1150-01-.22 Dry Needling. Below you will find my rough draft of the rules. There may be some minor wording changes.
The approved rules have now been passed onto the AGs office for review. As posted previously there is no time frame for the process to be complete. Once they have completed the AGs review they will be sent to the Government Operations Committee for a 90 day period.
I would like to again thank those therapists that have been working on this for over 2 years. My hat off to the Dry Needling work group, the TPTA board and lobbyist, the APTA for their financially and legal support as well as the individual therapist that have taken their time to pass along their ideas and suggestions.
Lastly, thanks to the licensing board for listening and understanding. They did an excellent job of balancing public safety with the need to provide a service to the public while avoiding excessive burdensome requirements.
We are one step closer!
