The final Physical Therapy Dry Needling Sunrise Review has been submitted to the legislature. This final report concludes the sunrise process. The full report with appendices is available on the DOH website at this link: http://bit.ly/2gVQmMZ
Although we agree with the DOH determination that the Physical Therapists proposal to add dry needing to the PT Scope of Practice does not meet the Sunrise Criteria for increasing a professions scope of practice, we have concerns about their recommendations to the legislature in the Executive Summary of the document.
We are currently strategizing how to best address this issue. We will be in contact soon with talking points.
