Board Action on Dry Needling
The Board of Physical Therapy has been reviewing the use of Dry Needling in Arizona for the past year. On October 22, 2013, the Board concluded its review of material submitted regarding the use of Dry Needling by physical therapists. The Board unanimously concluded Dry Needling falls within the definition of physical therapy in Arizona. The Board recognized that Dry Needling is an intervention that requires training beyond entry-level education and is developing a statement regarding its official position, which will be considered for adoption at the Board's December 17, 2013 meeting. In addition, the Board began the process of researching educational requirements other jurisdictions have put in place for advanced treatment intervention to include Dry Needling. If you have questions regarding the Board October 22, 2013 decision or what future actions the Board may take, please contact the Charles Brown, Executive Director at (602) 274-1088 or email@example.com.
